lyrics

Every morning feels like waking in a body not your own
Everything looks different from the world you used to know
And all you have is the promise of a man who always lies
But you will follow him until, until the day you die

Why keep fighting for a man who only wants to end it all?
It would be so much easier to let him fall
Aren’t you tired of building dams to keep him in his place?
Holding back the waters until, until he breaks

A breakthrough!
Let science light our world anew
We’ll follow through
Bringing night to its end

Every evening leaves you quaking in a fear of what’s to come
This is the gift that you receive for all you've done
But there may still be a quality that will redeem
If only you could make him see

You know you’re right
Don’t give up the fight
The truth can be hard to see

Don’t walk away
We’ll find another way
To reach the other side of me

You were right
There is light
On the other side of me

A breakthrough!
Let science light our world anew
We’ll follow through
Bringing night to its end

I see you waiting on the other side of me
