Where do we go from here?

If I told you not to cry, would your tears dry out for me?
If it was just a lie, could you find it in your heart to forgive me?
I've spent too long reading your eyes for justification
Catching whims, only to discard them again and again

Where do we go?
Where do we go from here?

If they wanted you to fly, would they have not given you wings?
If they wanted your silence, why would they let you sing?
You're a stowaway on a sinking ship, going down again
With so much to say, how can you be just part of the game?

I am sinking
In this dark water filling my mind
Where do we go?
Where do we go from here?

Now you're alone in your misery
Just another part of the scenery
A cog in its place in the machinery
When will you learn?

If you wanted freedom, why don't you cast away your chains?
If you put a price on your soul, that anyone can claim
How can you be so sure, that your soul is pure
If it's a tawdry trinket for sale?
Souls are bought and souls are sold
Gold for blood and blood for gold
Is this the way of the world?

Where do we go?
Where do we go from here?
Knowing with every breath... a lie is given life
I'm not afraid
To let you go

If it stops me from sinking...
