Drones

Deep inside these burning buildings voices die to be heard
Years we spent teaching a lesson we ourselves had never learned
And if strength is borne from heartbreak, then mountains I could move
If walls could speak I pray that they would tell me what to do

If you see me please just walk on by, walk on by
Forget my name and I'll forget it too
(Simple lives)Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives
Are what keep me coming back to you.

No signs of life here save the embers, the occasional flame
We know the way but can't remember, conception to the grave
Shout confessions from the greatest heights where no one can hear
All my fears my insecurities are falling like tears

If you see me please just walk on by, walk on by
Forget my name and I'll forget it too
(Simple lives)Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives
Are what keep me coming back to you.

The drones all slave away,
They're working overtime,
They serve a faceless queen,
They never questioned why,
Disciples of a god,
That neither lives nor breathes,
But we have bills to pay,
Yeah we have mouths to feed.

If you see me please just walk on by, walk on by
Forget my name and I'll forget it too
(Simple lives)Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives
Are what keep me coming back to you
Are coming back to you!
