From The If It Was So Simple album

Lyrics

Thinking over passing phrases,
The world you know,
Decayed and gone,
When your will is cracked and broken,
Then the schemes are much too strong,
Brushing off the disappointments,
And smiling out of misguided youth,
When you're lost in meditation,
Then your feet won't fit the shoes.

And you can't believe your feelings
And you can't hold up the world,
And it all seems, slightly average,
And the tunes don't fit the words.

Walking concrete,
Mile on mile,
Not a welcome face to see,
All the looks are so distorted,
And you know what is, must be.
Progress, advance, future, past,
All seem out of reach,
When you're classed as "social outcasts",
And to live you have to steal.

And you can't believe your feelings
And you can't hold up the world,
And it all seems, slightly average,
And the tunes don't fit the words.

Maybe someone just like you
Is thinking just the same,
That there is so much could have been done,
And wondering "Who Is to Blame"
So count the dreams held in your hand,
Like embers in the hearth,
You can't move yourself back into time
Or change the course of man,
