lyrics

I can only see all the wrongs we've done.
Should I close my eyes - take the things as they come?
Take them as they come?

I'm staring at the wall of human comprehension.
It's a gliding scale yeah we all feel its tension.
I'm staring at the flaws- this design is crashing-
As crooked as they come - The tensions' rising.
Can you feel it? Can you feel it?

And if the world would end tonight-
I just wanna say we had a good run.
And if the world would end tonight-
…One hell of a good run

Are we near the end close to the rightwing station?
Or are we heading for a nihilist nation?
Can you feel it?

I'm taking comfort in-
The love we find- The pain we feel-
I need to feel it. Need to feel it!
I can only see all the wrongs we’ve done-
And I just goddamn wish we can start feeling again.
We’ve set a precedent that it’s okay to numb our senses-
But it’s not okay – it’s not okay.

Should I close my eyes?
I can only see all the wrongs we've done.
Should I close my eyes –I don't think I can.
I don’t think I can.
