Greater History

lyrics

it hangs like a vapor. it steals like a thief. at four in the morning, it won’t let you sleep. it feels like I’m dreaming. with fever and sweat. just saw my reflection, we still hadn’t met. the lies are the same. the burden is all that remains. together we can turn it back. make our future outlive our past. with a little bit of urgency. we can write a greater history. one day these lungs are gonna fill with dirt. as legend has it we’re not the first. we are actors in this mystery. looking for a greater history. let’s unearth our compass. and see where it leads. we’ll make our confessions, to see how they read. from inside our shelter. so weathered and weak. we’re all under pressure, still gritting our teeth. the love that we make. will summon the giants awake. together we can turn it back. make our future outlive our past. with a little bit of urgency. we can write a greater history. one day these lungs are gonna fill with dirt. as legend has it we’re not the first. we are actors in this mystery. looking for a greater history. calm take this sword out of this stone. alive we wait, alive we wait. burn ancient heart, unlike the sun. alive we wake, alive we wake. together we can turn it back. make our future outlive our past. with a little bit of urgency. we can write a greater history. one day these lungs are gonna fill with dirt. as legend has it we’re not the first. we are actors in this mystery. looking for a greater history
