Verse 1:
I see a world through this one screen
Immersed beyond obsession
It doesn’t mean a thing
Drifting away as I float down stream
The water is murky
Feels like a dream

Verse 2:
There’s a sandstorm swirling on outside
But we’re safe in this house
There’s no need to hide
Cries on the wind that no one hears
Blown away and forgotten
Because no one seems to care

Pre Chorus:
What a world we’ve made
We need to fix it before it’s too late
Because we’re falling apart right now

Chorus:
When we can;t stand tall
Face up to it all
Bent and broken we fall
Crushed beneath the pain
It’s time for a change
Things can’t stay this way
Tomorrows a new day
And the time is now

Verse 3:
Strange painting lie upon the walls
Some leak bright colour
Others with none at all
If you glow brightly you’ll be picked up for sure
But if you fade away
You’ll end upon the floor

Pre Chorus:
All the mess and mistakes
We need to fix it before it’s too late
And it needs to be right now

Chorus

Bridge:
We’re drowning ourselves
In a poisonous hell
Welcome to the modern realm
Our sins drag us down
And we’re losing ground
But we can be better

Outro:
When we can stand tall
Face up to it all
Answer the call
Not give into pain
It’s time for a change
Things can’t stay this way
Today is a new day
And the time is now
