“Once the mind has been stretched by a new idea, it will never again return to its original dimensions.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.


My vision of the world
Is seeping through the sidewalk cracks and
I'm never going home
Because that's where the darkness is
And it won't uproot the origin
For it may begin again

A strained heart breaks down; it's very simple
The blood inside the soul is fragile
Its only shield is our friendship
But the world will only crush it
Continuing on until it gives in
After all, we're only human

The sound that defines despair
Is too quiet for anyone to hear
Because the way it works
It strips you down and leaves you bare
And you're down to fate again
And you're left alone again

A strained heart breaks down; it's very simple
The blood inside the soul is fragile
Its only shield is our friendship
But the world will only crush it
Continuing on until it gives in
After all, we're only human

Thirteen red streamers burn
Across the blank white sky they burn
Forever voices sing
Across the nations music sings
Across the graveyard music sings

A strained heart breaks down; it's very simple
The blood inside the soul is fragile
Its only shield is our friendship
But the world will only crush it
Continuing on until it gives in
After all, we're only-

A strained heart breaks down; it's very simple
The blood inside the soul is fragile
Its only shield is our friendship
But the world will only crush it
Continuing on until it gives in
After all, we're only human
