about

We all dream about being something more than we really are. It takes a special kind of person to convince others that these fantasies are reality. But even those charlatans can't maintain the façade forever.

lyrics

Counting the leaves,
But the branch is gone.
And in the blades,
There’s something wrong.
Creeping behind him it could
Be anything,
Or anyone, at all.

Turn in the light,
And he knows its there.
Sensing the ripples,
In the air.
Leaping he reaches out to,
Find it and then,
Trap it in his,

Snare. Its uncloaked.
Somehow in his reach.
Think about them talk about,
The things he now can teach.
Loneliness, unhappiness,
Is crushed within his hand.
But it’s a dream cause,
No one loves the man.

Won’t you,
Wanna tell the whole damn world about it
Your dream,
Is just an inch away.
Its true,
And you know that you can’t live without a
Way to keep your dream in a cage.

Believing the moral,
In the song,
You stretch all the words,
And rights along.
Singing the heroes lines you,
Find the strength to,
Make us just as strong.

March in the beat,
We grit our teeth.
Taking the pain,
That’s in belief.
I didn’t want to tell you,
The moral is a,
Sword within its,

Sheath, and its out.
Shining in our reach.
Thinking now, we brought it down,
Two slices underneath,
The curtain of uncertainty,
That hid our promised land.
Still it seems that,
No one understands

Won’t you
Wanna tell the world you’ll live without it.
Your dream,
Is just an inch away.
Its true,
I’ll walk away and hear you shout, you’ll,
Miss me in a couple of days.

Could it really be so bad?
When hubris trips the fate trap?
There’s nothing more behind us,
Leave the curtains closed around the past.

Won’t you,
Wanna tell the whole damn world about it
Your dream,
Is just an inch away.
Its true,
And you know that you can’t live without a
Way to keep your dream in a cage.

Won’t you (So long,happy ending)
Wanna tell the world you’ll live without it
Your dream,
Ended thirty years today. (It's gone, from this place.)
One foot,
When its followed by the only other’s,
Gonna get you out of this place.
