lyrics

a whisper seperates dreams from reality
and the certain success of a nightmare is bold
a beautiful vision of a clear and ornate
manifestation of a life untold

a picture of sorrow a snapshot of life
a bankrupt desire to drown in this strife
a lonely redeemer a hollow sound
to benefit a believer but never a shroud

now i count the reasons why
as i sit and observe the passers by
i asked for the life of a saint
i've been fed a life of restraint
like a fiend goes in for the kill
a glutton can never get his fill
gravity is the world's enemy
and the earth will never stand still

it all comes down to this
we make our own bliss
we strive for what we miss
we forget what we dismiss

now i count the reasons why
as i sit and observe the passers by
i asked for the life of a saint
i've been fed a life of restraint
like a fiend goes in for the kill
a glutton can never get his fill
gravity is the world's enemy
and the earth will never stand still
