lyrics

are we not human drawn to the night
are we just slaves to the day bound by the sun and light
are we not perfect in our own right
none of us blessed to be kings working our entire lives

so bless your aging youth
as it crumbles under you
are we not humans simple brains in common men
are we not dragged through heaven and hell then back again

are we all broken in our design
are we just childhood toys lived in, loved and thrown aside
if we’re not careful we’ll lose our minds
living stressed duressed by the pressures of the daily grind

so bless your aging youth
as it crumbles under you
are we not humans simple brains in common men
are we not dragged through heaven and hell then back again x2

suddenly I’m falling through the dark and I’m falling through fire
mortal as man through loving I was born a liar
suddenly I’m falling through the air and I’m falling through clouds
a driven young mind but I speak my mind far too loud

so bless your aging youth
as it crumbles under you
are we not humans simple brains in common men
are we not dragged through heaven and hell then back again x2
