  • What do you say?
    What do you think about miracles?
    Miracles are something's you dream about
    We are looking for a new way out
    Slipping away,losing all sense of reality
    Sacrifice, love and democracy
    We burn it all down
    Cos all our lives
    We're waiting for something new
    Waiting for someone like you

    We are the people
    Who let this whole thing go
    Just like the people you know
    We are the reason
    We're blinded by the goal
    We are the people, you know

    Burning away
    Light in the sky so you can bring us home
    Further, further down an open road
    We've torn it all down
    Why do we pray, why do we talk about angels?
    Flying with their golden wings
    We've burned it all down

    Cos all our lives
    We're waiting for something new
    Waiting for someone like you

    We are the people
    Who let this whole thing go
    Just like the people you know
    We are the reason
    We're blinded by the goal
    We are the people you know

    Step it up again
    We can be silenced
    We can be brave
    We can be broken
    All can be saved
    It's the rest of our lives Writer/s: Grant Nicholas
