my lyricsbox
Living by the printed page
The landmarks of the age
I find... a coat that's poorly lined
Handed down from time to time
Waiting for the sun to shine

Standing here amidst this crowd
And wondering aloud
I find... a joke that's poorly timed
Thinking back to simpler days
Of waiting for a light to change

No one can take this away from me
The martyrs and madmen I learned of in school
Will remember my name
Some things are never the way they seem
Bury our centuries' wasted regrets
And remember this reign

Walking from the weary gloom
The din of empty rooms
I find... a poem that's poorly rhymed
And waiting for the walls to fall
I'm stunned by the failure of it all

No one can take this away from me
Spellbound in anger my heroes have failed
To remember my name
Some things are never the way they seem
Buy up our centuries' bleeding remains
And remember this reign

It's only water falling down
It's only water in my tears
It's only water drowning me
It's only water for all these years

And waiting for the walls to fall
I'm stunned by the failure of it all
This song is from the album "Toy Matinee".
