Failed forces arise from the dust

Of disappointed youth

They call to arms the unknown

They come and go taking life

To fuel their neon fire

That runs around your head

Oceans rise and fall

Like a misdirected moon

That sinks too soon

Soon your eyes will shine

With the light of a thousand suns

It'll shine on and on

The ice runs hot in your blood

Like a devil in disguise

Or a moth to a flame

Things will never change

He only wants to be reborn

But sometimes fate won't take the chance 

On intention misunderstood

Failure comes and goes

But this one's here to stay

Do you care anyway

We had hope but now it's lost 

In vanity's lust for gold

And now I hope for something more

With meaning tossed to the side

Like we never learned to care

For each other 

A million years until the sun 

Blows us all away

Now look at what you've done
