MP3 Genre :Rock
The day slowly evaporates
Clouds dissolve into endless blue
The world is spinning slowly
And the sun will rise again

Everything has changed
Yet everything remains the same
If we could just open our eyes
If we could step outside our own skin

Sometimes it's too easy to forget
As we are in our safe warms beds
That across the ocean miles away
There is a child who falls asleep to the sound of bombs bursting in the air

There are fingers fondling triggers
And faces drowning in power
Well... do we even realize
How many lives are erased hour after hour

As the time drifts slowly
And the moon begins to rise
The night calls to reclaim the day
And it's time to shut our eyes

Sometimes it's too easy to forget
As we are in our safe warm beds
That across the city miles away
There is someone who has no place to rest their head

We are falling deeper now and floating in the night
Well... how much further will we go before we finally rise
Will apathy weigh heavy on our lids and pull us in
Or will we stand up tonight, tonight, tonight

Sometimes it's too easy to forget
As we are in our safe warm beds
That across the miles everyday
There are so many whose lives are in a constant state of unrest

Sometimes it's just easier to shut our eyes
