Tiptoeing these shorelines
Waiting for a ghost to come
And shake me from this blank stare
I've been wearing the past fifteen years
We'll all be fine
In this plane crash world we've founded
Where hope divides
Our willingness to thrive

If we all subscribe the same
What a dull place this would be
Where there's no room for clemency
You're overconfident in dealing absolutes
With fear and control disguising as love
You're so sure that we're all
So absolutely wrong

Slipping from this bloodline
Begging me to stop questioning
Then plans you had for my life
Return, repent, reclaim what was when
But I'll be fine
In fact I'm better off alone here
Where faith divides
What's wrong from what is right

It's so goddamn heartbreaking

I think we all find our own truth
In scattered memories and fading youth
Maybe if we just wait a while
We'll find that it all comes down to nothing
But if its fighting loneliness
Then maybe it's all for the best
If we live and let live before we all die
This isn't how it should be
Think of what it could be if we tried
To live and let live before we all die
