lyrics

Ask yourself,
was it worth all the trouble?
Ask yourself,
did you want to feel noble?
Ask yourself,
why are we screaming?
Ask yourself,
was this the outcome you were dreaming of?
Ask yourself,
are we having a good time?
Ask yourself,
do you see red in the moonlight?
Ask yourself,
who is really on your side?
Ask yourself,
why not just walk away?

We didn't know there was a battle on the sidelines
Keeping ourselves with the movement of the fluid lights
Finding come morning that some people had been left behind
Left in confusion

I don't know
where the aggression comes from
I don't know
how to ease all the symptoms
I don't know
how to turn it to healing
I don't know
why we always end up feeling worse
I don't know
how people have a good time
I don't know
when they see red in the moonlight
I don't know
what is really on their minds
I don't know
if the fire will pass with the day

Rising like an anchor from the depths
That hold the light from the window
Bringing the night to mind
And the spirits begin sinking

We didn't know that they had lost all of their patience
Dragging us into another fake arrangement
Leads us to here right at the ending of an age and
Hearing the last word

Rising like an anchor from the depths
That hold the light from the window
Bringing the night to mind
And the spirits begin sinking
