LYRICS

We built this all for you to hang your dreams upon
Our sanctuary, a safe and warm refuge
You turn lives upside down in the pursuit of a common ground
But you don’t even try to keep up with the pace

Well we never hang out socially
You never even seem to want to talk to me
Where we are all danger and you are the dust
And both are even balanced on ribbons of trust

This is my final letter of complaint, my fatal resignation
I tried to enable perspective while wishing for education
You pretend we are all so dear to you
But these are the last words I will give to you
While silently you plot your revenge I have the answer

Well listen up here sweet indifference
Don’t you know my enemies are even closer than my good friends?
Don’t you ever dare to think I wouldn’t cut your throat
To stop you breaking me into pieces again, again, again, again

Now we never hang out, not like it used to be
You never even seem to want to talk to me
Where we are all danger and you are the dust
And both are even balanced on ribbons of trust

Do you really know the meaning of sacrifice?
(I can start over, we can start over again)
Did we ever connect, was it all superficial?
(This means everything, this means nothing)
We welcomed you like family, you left your lonely world
(These are the last words I will give to you)
Until your self pity overwhelms us
(I have the answer, I have the answer)

Don’t change what you can’t understand
