life is just
a mirror that
you can not break

a puzzle maze
within a dream
that has no face

day by day
we run away
from wolves in clothes

but they're the ones
who live in fear
and no one knows

the secret is
we have the power to
kill them

looking out the window at the sheep
they'll never find, what it is they need

because that's not the way the game is run
you run in circles until you're done

understand that this is not a song
it's just your brain, singing along

and we grow stronger with each passing day
while they decay, in every way

they can't control
the animals
no friends or foe
reap what you sow

such sophistication put into
the things we say, the things we do

what's going on is bigger than you see
bigger than you, bigger than me

I can see the demons gathering
I feel them watching and listening

so fascinated by the things we've done
for what we are and what we have become

they can't control
the animals
no friends or foe
reap what you sow

you're not going to tell me who I am
I've come too far, within this plan

what's made me what I am you can not take
the pain that causes most men to break

and that is why you constantly remain
one step behind to, repeat again

yes we are more than what we say and do, cause who we
are speaks louder than we're able to

they can't control
the animals
no friends or foe
reap what you sow

why can't you see or understand that we are all just castles in the sand

castles in the sand

beware the hidden hand

wind you up in 1 direction

no second thought, to if that thought, is even right, or wrong

you offer peace to all your enemies
cause you're a coward, brought to your knees

just keep your head down and die quietly
you'd only slow down the rioting

behind the walls of sharing single thoughts
even when you find, you've all been wrong

just wooden puppets marching single file, they just
follow the leader straight into the fire

they can't control
the animals
no friends or foe
reap what you sow

no

we're just building castles in the sand

so busy building castles in the sand

we kill our own for castles in the sand

oceans of blood and castles in the sand

they can't control
the animals
no friends or foe
reap what you sow

why can't you see or understand that we are all just castles in the sand
