about

For My Great Grandmother

lyrics

We leave the television blaring
To create the illusion that our lives are not vacant
But still our hearts are so shattered
We are all speeding with no destination
An imaginary prize until we sadly falter

Hollow children sputtering out
From birth until failure, we march on forever
We are only as strong as the mark we left behind

It was a cold, cold day in December
Your hands were folded
Your heart was silent
What was this boy to do?
How could I possibly stay here without you?

You were a young soul waiting for heaven
And heaven had finally come for you
I know this much is true
They'll never be another one like you

Hollow children sputtering out
From birth until failure, we march on forever
We are only as strong as the mark we left behind


God, are you really listening?
If this is only a test
If this is only a test, I feel like I'm failing

God, are you really listening?
If this is only a test
If this is only a test, I feel like I'm failing
Failing you.
