  • So we all
    Are growing old
    And it's getting old

    Pressure on
    Our hollow bones
    And the (varicose)

    Suddenly
    We decompose
    But we're not alone

    So we all
    Are growing old

    Maybe we're sealed in silence
    And maybe we feel a guidance
    Maybe your own devices
    Will keep you afraid and cold
    But I

    Memorized
    Your smile lines
    From left to right

    (Candlelight)
    And childlike
    Reaction time

    We're allowed
    To expire
    ?

    So we all
    Are growing old

    Pull out the fear of silence
    And put out the need for guidance
    And put out your own devices
    And don't be afraid of the cold

    And we sing, sing, sing.
    Fight, we fight, fight.
    We cry, cry, cry.
    We slide, slide, we slide into the light.

    We sing, fight, we cry.
    We slide, slide, we slide into the light.

    Maybe we're sealed in silence
    And maybe we feel a guidance
    Maybe your own devices
    Will keep you afraid and cold, well.

    Pull out the fear of silence
    Put out the need for guidance
    Put out your own devices
    And don't be afraid of the cold
    Afraid of the cold
    Afraid of the time
    You've got no where to go but here. Publisher: Bluewater Music Corp.
