The candle, the candle’s burning
It burns us, searing white
And right now gates are closing
Narrow as the minds

Goodbye to blue sky
We couldn’t justify
Fading, fading mercy

Many years have passed us by
Never stopping to ask why
We could let it go, let it go

Part of the same mold
Welcoming the blindfold
Faking just a blank face of stone

Part of the same mold
Welcoming the blindfold
We have seen the road that lay ahead

Falling down, heavy’s the crown
Falling down, when will we drown

Waiting for the storm
To find us in our homes
Crazy, this is crazy
All those fears are creeping by
Calculating when we’ll die
We can’t let it go, let it go
