lyrics

Four M(b)illion Years

V1:
For 4 Billion years
We’ve been on this Earth.
We tested it with time
And still end up in dirt.
It shouldn’t have to rhyme,
But pray that it does to all deaf ears.
We still have to climb
To get up off this tragic island.

Chorus:
I will see a day when nobody hurts.
I will see a day when we hurt too much.
No matter what they say I will keep on working.
Just because I don’t pray, doesn’t mean that I won’t see it in my day.

V2:
For almost 30 years
I’ve been on this earth.
I’ve never had the time
On my wrist or in my personal life.
It’s really not a crime
To love something intangible.
I follow it blind
It will lead me off this shrinking island.

Chorus:
I will see the day when nobody hurts.
I will see the day when we hurt too much.
No matter what they say we must keep on working.
Just because we don’t pray, doesn’t mean that we won’t see it in our days.

Days, Daze, Days, Daze, Days, Dazed?

Outro:
I know, I know
I’ve said it all before,
But I’m gone.
I know, I know, I know
I’ve said it all before
I’m gone, I’m sorry

I’m gone
Looking for You x4
