Lyrics

    Gun fire in the street
    Where we used to meet
    Echoes out a beat and the bass goes
    Bomb right over my head 
    Step over the dead 
    Remember what you said you know, the part about
    Life is just a waking dream 
    I know what you mean
    But that ain't how it seems right here and how
    How can all this be real
    I can barely feel 
    Anymore
    
    I am trying to see
    I am trying to believe 
    This is not where I should be 
    I am trying to believe 
    
    Blood hardens in the sand 
    Cold metal in my hand 
    Help you understand
    The way that things are gonna be
    There's nowhere left to hide 
    'Cause God is on our side 
    I keep telling myself
    
    I am trying to see 
    I am trying to believe 
    This is not where I should be 
    I am trying to believe
    
    No one's even sure
    What we're fighting for
    Or who we even are
    Anymore
    I feel
    So far away
