lyrics

Someday I’ll wake up on my own
It’ll be the saddest day for love
And it’ll send me on my way

To drop like cargo sent to save the masses
We’re high from the touch down, drunk off our asses
There’s a rush in the falling
And pure thrill of dying not alone

We’re Humans Being, and Humans trying

Cool is the breeze that blows my way
It might settle in the same
And wedge like water
Crept in the rocks down below

When winter comes it’ll split the seem
By no fault of ice or the water between
It’s the things in my head that won’t leave my heart alone

We’re Humans Being, and Humans trying
To last while winds in our own minds are wearing us thin
We’re Humans Being, and Humans trying
What tears us down, still makes us who we are

When all my dreams that I’d see
Become one all-at-once with my needs

It’ll take us places we can’t get to fast
By the power of our legs, we know this won’t last
We seem so now together
We should stop this carrying on

I Walked right out of my shoes and up to the edge
It happened all at once like my father once said
“There’s a breaking point for everything”
“You can only push so hard”

You see we’re Humans Being, and Humans trying
To last while winds in our own minds are wearing us thin
You see we’re Humans Being, and Humans trying
What tears us down, and makes us who we are
