lyrics

i dream that maybe we'll burn together
how does that sound? if we stay and weather
the storm we might survive, but the aftermath crazes
the surface of this earth with a million mazes
the faces staring up, blank as the world erupts
nothingness accusing me of negligence run amok
and i know deep inside that if i tried a little harder
they would maybe be alive, i would maybe be a martyr
it's a voice of God resonating in my ears
calling me a failure as i wipe away my own tears
and i wake up as the final death toll appears
i haven't had this nightmare in nearly ten years

do you remember what you were doing when you were eleven years old?
cuz i've been trying to retrace my steps
do you remember what you were doing when you were eleven years old?
cuz i haven't found anything yet

and now there's silence in response to violence
sitting on a pedestal massaging my conscience
talking in circles, calling for divestment
never taking the chance to make a risky investment
but i'm tired of being afraid to be culpable
tired of trying to make contradictions resolvable
give me rough edges, watch me embrace them
not a cause of death but a response to your reason

do you remember what you were doing when you were eleven years old?
cuz i've been trying to replace my past
do you remember what you were doing when you were eleven years old?
cuz i'm putting memories to rest
