lyrics

She was so patient -
thousands of years, planting footprints in the soil.
She said "It's happening.
Don't wait for them to let you start living, Man.
We're in motion."
And her smile lit whole cities,
as the train tore up the tracks.
And she'd just sit there, crying
and holding them up.

She'd sing "Run, run, run, because there's not long now to go,
and growing up means finding peace from nothing.
If we all fall and join the fires down below
we're just as terrified as those decaying."
And sometimes I get scared
that we're just really good at faking it.

Her smile spurred whole mornings,
in the wake of the void of evenings long gone.
And to dance upon her roots,
with eyes up to the sky,
she's waiting patiently for us to grow up and move on.
Forever, time and time again,
we'd sit and listen
for her revolution songs.
Where's the revolution
of our generation
after she's gone?
Oh where's the revolution
after she's done singing

"Run, run, run, because there's not long now to go,
and growing up means finding peace from nothing.
If we all fall and join the fires down below
we're just as terrified as those decaying."
And sometimes I get scared
sometimes I get scared
sometimes I get scared
that we're just really good at faking it.
