lyrics

He opens eyes in a world he can't rely on,
These broken pines surround all that he's known.
His world is ice, but it's nothing he hasn't seen
He's looking for change but is still caught back in between,
For when he calls to me he says,

Wake up my friend,
And hold me as I leap
Beyond a land
That's been fettered by broken dreams,
As we flee from these fine lies.

The sky is cast in blue that holds his eyes,
As the coming dusk will paint our darkening lives.
It's alright old friend, you've got the night to wait, please wait -
Comfort yourself, for your mind will keep you safe,
For when you call to me, saying,

Wake up my friend,
And hold me as I leap
Beyond a land
That's been fettered by broken dreams.

Wake up my friend,
And hold me as I leap
Beyond a land
That's been fettered by broken dreams,
As we flee from these fine lies.

Wake up my friend,
And hold me as I leap
Beyond a land
That's been fettered by broken dreams

Please wake up my friend,
And hold me as I leap
Beyond a land
That's been fettered by broken dreams,
As we flee, as we flee, from these fine lies.
