When the winds fall around your shoulders
She was found with the knife inside her eye
SOMEHOW I found the strength TO move on yet again
THE PACIFIC SANDS reach into my lungs and hold me tight
Why doesn't the sun warm my bones anymore like it use to?
I've just got to stop being childish
And do goods things come to those who...

Wait! There is nothing more that can be done
You just have to stand back and...
Hope! There is nothing more precious in these dying times
You have to spread it around where-ever you see...
Decay! I guess you're dead and gone now
When death doesn't mean you're alone, the answers will be found

Half the time I'm hoping for a quick end
The other half is spent wondering what the hell you could say
That would make a damn bit of difference
It isn't that you're of no IMPORTANCE
It's more like you don't matter and that thought JUST MAKES ME HAPPY
Half the time I'm running through the fire LIKE ITS NOTHING
The other half I'm at home treating the burns and regrowing my hair
And why don't good things come to those who...

Wait! There is nothing more that can be done
You just have to stand back and...
Hope! There is nothing more precious in these dying times
You have to spread it around where-ever you see...
Decay! I guess you're dead and gone now
When death doesn't mean you're alone, the answers will be found

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO just to see my face on a milk carton?
HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE until my friends even care?
I'm jumping through the forest with a lighter in my hand
I know its just a cry for more attention
But I'm becoming lost in this ever-growing expedition
I BURN THE TREES TO ASH AND THE ANIMALS GO UP IN SMOKE
I run through the fire again just to make sure I catch
I don't ignite but my clothes singe my flesh
Most of the time you can find me; lost in thought behind the mask
Most of the time you can't find me; I've been hiding for years
And good things come to those who...

Wait! There is nothing more that can be done
You just have to stand back and...
Hope! There is nothing more precious in these dying times
You have to spread it around where-ever you see...
Decay! I guess you're dead and gone now
When death doesn't mean you're alone, the answers will be found
