lyrics

We were looking at the world
Our hands tied up in curls
Of knots that we could not unfurl
So we stood, the world's pearl

And we tried to breathe it in
Burst in flame like paraffin
And much to all the stars' chagrin
There was more dust that settled in

We saw the sunlight rising
Through the dark skyline
Through the night we were hiding
From that old bright light

We were soaked to the bone
As bodies trembling in snow
Holding hands as if we'd known
That keeping close won't keep us cold

Dreamt of rising from the depths
As soldiers bound in our duress
Watching hardened drops of lead
Sink into our softened flesh

We wanted so damn badly
To be heroes that night
But our minds fought gladly
We couldn't hold up the fight

And we kept on trying trying tonight
Nothing could keep us out of that light
We kept on trying trying tonight
We kept on trying trying tonight

But we thought that we could win
Just like Thomas Edison
Did with all his inventions
And we had nothing to begin

Every time we struck a chord
Back to our old drawing board
Fighting fire with a sword
We were melting with each word

We saw the light in our pathway
But it was miles away
We were all going that way
We could have lasted for days

And we kept on trying trying tonight
Nothing could keep us out of that light
We kept on trying trying tonight
We kept on trying trying tonight
