Parts Per Million

 

There's something wrong with the words that we're not saying

And the silence we're creating like a ghost note symphony

There's something wrong and the temperature is rising

Ignoring every siren as we're marching towards a cliff

But these are choices that we don't have to make

Block out the voices 'cause they have led you astray

What I've been trying to say to you is that

 

There's something in the water, there must be something in the air

Just 'cause I can't put my finger on it, it doesn't mean that it's not there

 

We are all turned on but then we all tune out

As we are hypnotized by the sparkling lies

We fall under their spell

But don't forget that these are choices

That we don't have to make, so many voices

That have led us astray, we can't keep anything down

The room is spinning around

 

There must be something in the water, yeah there's something in the air

Just 'cause I can't put my finger on it, it doesn't mean that it's not there

 

You are the grains of sand that slip through my hands again

And we are the hourglass, love like a flame that can't be held

Somewhere beyond the lives we burn, lies the point of no return

Like the sand in the hourglass

But there is something in your eyes that shakes me back to life

And though I can't put my finger on it

Now I know we're gonna be alright

It's gonna be alright, it's gonna be alright

 

'Cause there is something in the water, yeah there is something in the water

In this life we sink or swim or just float

We all die yeah, but did we live at all?
