  • Stare into a gleaming stone
    Trying to seek new light
    It glistened once, now it's unrefined and cold
    Try to live a perfect life
    Paint our world in gold
    Before we realized we were owned and sold

    Reflections hurt my eyes
    Rays cut me the size
    Glimmer in the sun
    The brilliance comes undone

    We worked these mines for far too long
    Set our lives in stone
    The tracks that lead us down are overgrown
    Climb out to a past we'd lost
    Now the future's old
    The embers burned too bright for us to hold

    Reflections hurt my eyes
    Rays cut me the size
    Glimmer in the sun
    The brilliance comes undone

    Reflections hurt my eyes
    Rays cut me the size
    Glimmer in the sun
    The brilliance comes undone Writer/s: DAVID MACLEAN, JAMES DIXON, THOMAS GRACE, VINCENT NEFF
