#1
The pieces scatter with the breeze
Of a life we thought we knew
We cast our dreams into the sea
Before they can't come true
Through all the years we left alone
Beyond the tears we cried
Kept awake by what lies beneath
And forced to choose our side

Alive, but barely here, we hide
Sometimes we walk a broken line
Alive, but barely here, we find
In time, we'll read the wrong way signs

Fuel the fire with your lies
Mixing signals with the smoke
Run the race that no one leads
And try to stay afloat
The consequence of our crossed stars
May never come undone
Burning bridges as we cross
Between the father and the son

Alive, but barely here, we hide
Sometimes we walk a broken line
Alive, but barely here, we find
In time, we'll read the wrong way signs

Before it's over
And when we're older
The words might not come out so wrong
Before it's over
And when we're older
The words might not come out so wrong
We're barely here
Barely breathing
Staring down a change of season
Giving in and giving reason away

Alive, but barely here, we hide
Sometimes we walk a broken line
Alive, but barely here, we find
In time, we'll read the wrong way signs
