lyrics

Momentum means everything now
Can’t push on further, too burnt out
Let me out, now let me in
Two paths converge, split, then they begin

When the highest of hopes
Could illuminate the vast unknown
I used to be the brightest spark
But cannot exist like that anymore
I was so naïve all those years I felt completed
I didn't really know what I truly needed

At this point, it could go either way
I could lie awake for weeks or I could sleep for days
Suspended off the edge
I'm scaling the Great Divide
To face this wishful fiscal cliff
Where ambition and indifference coincide

Wha-oh-oh-oh
Wha-oh-ah-oh
Wha-oh-oh-oh
Whoaaaaah

Thirteen years, continuously
Tearing up the stolen blueprints
Of your generic battle-plans
Flat palm strikes to cold pavement
A gathering of nightmare architects
To deconstruct our damaged dreams
Bow down before the Demolition God
Destroying a house of memories

I was so naïve all those years I felt complete
I still don't really know what I truly need

At this point, it could go either way
I could lie awake for weeks or I could sleep for days
Suspended off the edge
I'm scaling the Great Divide
To face this wishful fiscal cliff
Where ambition and indifference coincide

Wha-oh-oh-oh
Wha-oh-ah-oh
Wha-oh-oh-oh
Whoaaaaah

Waking from a compulsory coma
To nobody at your side, except
A statue peering into your earthen soul
With its stony, hollowed eyes
Starving for unfiltered sunlight but
Morning shades cloak dirty windows
Frail archetypical scaffolding
Our framework built of porous bones

Watch one era bleed into another
Admire time's viscous laminar flow
Standing over an unfinished canvas
A portrait of where we've been and will go
Wandering aimlessly abroad to avoid
The countless walking dead like me
Stock footage replaces pivotal moments of your life
Homesick for places you'll never see

We've been burned by our heroes
Too many times before
This time as a phantom
Now once more as a ghost
