lyrics

An octopus in the sand
______

What is a man in isolation but a sky without a sun?
Limited, a miscarriage of fate (a miscarriage of fate)
And though everyone feels lonely at the top
I have my friends by my side
We weren’t meant to be alone
We are not islands, we are continents
What they call mistakes
I call it opportunities to believe
The chance to build, to rebuild, to recall
We weren’t meant to be all alone
The skies will burn yet we stand tall
The legions of corruption bring us all to stand in line
But we will not give in, together we will persevere
And though everyone feels lonely at the top
I have my friends by my side
We weren’t meant to be alone
We are not drops of water, we are oceans
We are oceans
Endless, invincible, capable of swallowing your hopes (your hopes)
Drop the anchor, leave everything behind (everything behind)
And burn, every motherfucking trace,
That keeps you chained to your burdens
I’m just another promise you couldn’t keep (promises)
Now show me the way out lead me into the light
And every time we say goodbye,
Is another chance to start all over again
A new chance to start all over again
I have my friends by my side
I won’t be afraid.
