We leave
We forget
And we shape expected forms
When our imagination''s too poor

We come and
We rage
And we break whatever we've cared for
Only because we got bored

We lie and
We pray
And we hope that we will get away
With whatever weakness we carry that we''re ashamed of

Let it rave through your body
And blow through your mind
Let the light and the waves
Pound your flesh to the ground
So you hear how life
Keeps on calling you
Keeps on believing
That you can embrace all the love
That is given to you
Through life, throughout time
It is grander than pain
And much grander than doubt
If you turn to hope
if you turn to your heart
You will hear how the voices do sing out
To the oceans, to the sky
To the oceans, to the sky
