This is why it's all gone unnerving
Would you say, the same old story
Notice why the wheels are turning
Turn away and turn again this time
Listen now the savior calling
Time again and we will see you
Notice that the tide walks higher
Lean again and change it's way this time.

I'll break them all, no mercy shown
Heaven knows, it's got to crack somewhere
Watching her, a sinking ship
The times she cried, too frail to wake this time.

I'll break them all, no mercy shown
Heaven knows it's got to be somewhere
Avenues all lined with trees
Picture me, then you start watching.

Watching forever
Watching forever.

I was told, where your faith goes
Now I was told, may it be so
Truth be told, shall it be so.
