Drones

Deep inside these burning buildings

Voices die to be heard

Years we spent teaching a lesson

We ourselves had never learned

 

And if strength is born from heartbreak

Then mountains I could move

And if walls could speak I'd pray

That they would tell me what to do

 

If you see me, please just walk on by, walk on by.

Forget my name and I'll forget it too.

Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives

Are what keep me coming back to you.

 

No signs of life here, save the embers, the occasional flame,

We'd know the way but can't remember, conception to the grave,

Shout confessions from the greatest heights, where no one can hear,

All my fears, my insecurities are falling like tears.

 

If you see me, please just walk on by, walk on by.

Forget my name and I'll forget it too.

Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives

Are what keep me coming back to you.

 

The drones all slave away, they're working overtime,

They serve a faceless queen, they never question why.

Disciples of a God, that neither lives nor breathes, (I won't come back!)

But we have bills to pay, yeah we have mouths to feed! (I won't come back!)

I won't come back!

 

And if you see me, please just walk on by, walk on by.

Forget my name and I'll forget it too.

Failed attempts at living simple lives, simple lives

Are what keep me coming back to you.

 

I'm coming back to you
