Lean against the wind and sleep on waves
You are one with it, don't turn away
Their waters won't carry me anymore
So I hold my breath, but what for?

Why do I never learn
Why do I never learn?

There are not enough hours in any day
To do what you got to do and say what you have to say
Your loudest voice silenced, your words bottled up, you break halfway

This fear of misplaced trust will slowly melt and wash away
Until the cores of our hearts lie bare and naked as they came
But you light your fires and burn their tongues
When you give your body to everyone

Why do we never learn?
why do we never learn?

And which ever way we turn
There's a hunger inside us that will never be stilled
It runs in our blood, killing every thing that can be killed
Leaving mortal shells empty, green eyes turning white
Dreams undreamed and the prophecies unfulfilled
