lyrics

starting out clean slate
naive and vulnerable, and ever so susceptible
we had nothing but time
but the years can leave you reeling, with a sinking feeling
now i'm staring at a screen
part man and part machine, dreaming of waking

holding out and holding on
digging in with two feet
till one more piece of me is gone
sinking, sinking
moving up and moving on
push it down the line
till one more piece of me is gone

we burn, we try
we'll do what we must do to survive
we live, we get by
right here where dreams go to die

we're doing so much more with less
still we try to do our best, but i confess
we just push it down the line
save it for another time on our own dime
are you alive out there?
can we survive in here?
dreaming of waking

holding out and holding on
digging in with two feet
till one more piece of me is gone
sinking, sinking
moving up and moving on
push it down the line
till one more piece of me is gone

we burn, we try
we'll do what we must to survive

i want my fire back, like when i was young
i don't want to regret all the songs unsung
there's gotta be so much more than this
so much more that i can't miss
and now i'm asking why
we settle here where dreams go to die
