lyrics

Life is a gloom for the dungeon dormers
Always aware we are near the end
In this ballet we are all performers
Dancing the role of dust in the wind

Always uneasy among my companions
Crippled in crowds where the pretty ones play
Spending years afraid of damage
Clinging to a time that fades away

We built this up too high in our minds
The world we've known is gone
We're left behind

Worried we're past the peak of our privilege
Always afraid we were never enough
Did we elect the course we've taken?
Either way, the road got rough

I posted my status surrounded by sadness
But nobody wanted to hear that news
Ignoring my cries of late-breaking badness
Declining invitations to the blues

We built this up too high in our minds
The world we've known is gone
We're left behind

Always aloof up above the others
The hostess refused to leave me alone
Dragging me out onto the dance floor
I'd hoped for so much more but now I'm gone
