Comes the sign of wasted times
I will wait no more
Ever trudging through the aimless
Forests we explore

In our boots and money chains
Misfitting cloaks we can't contain
Hidden hates of urgency
Declaring our emergency

And up the tallest window world
The distance was not clear
Unoccupied my brutish thoughts
We had no cause to fear
A lesson so severe

Hotter than the fire we built
Darker than the truth
Ignorance reflected in
The windows of our youth

Push me now beyond the bounds
Of healing hands and thorny crowns
And all the sadness it implies
I've tasted with my own two eyes

And as the cattle rack was cleared
The floor was brightly stained
And larger though we grew in size
Not a thing was gained
The fate as so ordained
