lyrics

The head only knows
What it’s been told
It beats on the chest
To tell it the rest
To make it feel whole

The heart will give all it has
For the chance to get something back
It takes any hand
It breaks on demand
For the chance to be had

Somewhere between
The facts and the dreams
There lives an inkling
Fast and fleeting

All we are is what we’re dying for

The half that can see
Is the half that believes
The other half hopes
The words that it chose are the ones that it needs

I only see
What they’re showing to me
If it’s just a hoax
Entertainers and jokers
Then we’re dying for free

Somewhere between
The facts and the dreams
There lives an inkling
Fast and fleeting

All we are is what we’re dying for

All we are is worth some dying for
