lyrics

the techno-haze
the drone of it all
the double-face
the photo on the wall
the numbing of
my particular mind
your losing faith
i'm losing time
where's the drama
where's the crisis
my head's in the hum
of a thousand devices

these hero stories
i've been telling myself
i can't keep it going
with my life on the shelf
where's the joy
where's the love
i know i'm never gonna
find it in that drug

they made the decision for me again
decided i'm much too good

but maybe
i'm a little misguided
maybe there's a pill i could take
i could bury all my love in the break
of a wave
crashing down
on the beach
on some white shore
but i won't run away
no i won't be afraid

life is short
and life is long
in your heart
you know right from wrong
i never needed anybody
telling me what's what
i knew it all from the start
one day a big rain's gonna come
and wash up these streets
gonna make em all shiny
and make em clean
i'm gonna build a big boat
and then i'm gonna float
away

i don't know maybe
i'm a little misguided
maybe there's a pill i could take
i could bury all my love in the break
of a wave
crashing down
on the beach
on some white shore
but i won't run away
no i won't be afraid

sometimes the only way
of holding tight
is by letting go
so i'm letting go
here i go letting go
