there's a time to be
there's a time to fly
so run

help me try to sing this song
when's the end
it takes too long

burn the bridge
of rotten wood
to things i never understood

try to find my way back home
friendship spent
and words now wrong

hope they feel the way i did
look inside
its just a kid

patience patience
sing this song
never never wait too long

abuser of the common grace
the tail of the human race

you built your own insanity
you found out what it meant to me

fast asleep
and counting sheep
the world not what its meant to be

truth in what you think you know
who you are
and don't let go

are you spinning in my thread
wonder wonder what you said

questioning reality
softer shadows
sharper teeth

wait for all the things i've said
don't hold your breath

how could i
wait too long
whats the matter
the words now wrong
soul shattered
well that's the goal
rather be passive
and comfortable

that's not what i used to know

there's a time to be
there's a life to find
so run

when your wait is over
i don't want to find you alone
i've been waiting so long
i don't know where i'm going

and if you ever feel your savior
is hurting so bad
he don't want to get it right
he only wants to sing that song
he heard it when he was a boy
and he's been waiting so long
he can't remember how it goes

that's not what i used to know
