So please don't ask me how
I ended up at my wits end and breaking down
Pages torn from books we never read
'Cause we're plugged into this grid
Don't pull this plug right now
Or then we really have to live

When I die, will they remember not
What I did but what I haven't done?
It's not the end that I fear with each breath
It's life that scares me to death

When we build these dreams on sand
How they all slip through our hands
Well this might be our only chance
Let's take this one day at a time
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
The time that we kill keeps us alive

Your words won't save me now
I'm at the edge feeling the sweat drip from my brow
Get a grip on yourself is what they say
Every hour, every day, hands over my ears
I've been screaming all these years

When I die, will they remember not
What I did but what I haven't done
It's not the end that I fear with each breath
It's life that scares me to death

When we build these dreams on sand
How they all slip through our hands
Well this might be our only chance
Let's take this one day at a time
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
The time that we kill keeps us alive

We came in search of answers
We left empty handed again
Shots fired into the sky are now returning
Where the fuck will you hide?

Hiding from the laughter
In the closets of our lives
But the door hinges are squeaking
Letting in thin shards of light

And now a hand's extending outward
Quiet comfort they invite
Do we dare take what they offer?
Do we step into the light?

When I die, will they remember not
What I did but what I haven't done?
It's not the end that I fear with each breath
It's life that scares me to death

When we build these dreams on sand
How they all slip through our hands
And this might be our only chance
Let's take this one day at a time
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
The time that we kill keeps us alive

When we build these dreams on sand
How they all slip through our hands
And this might be our only chance
Let's take this one day at a time
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
The time that we kill keeps us alive
