Lives in a corporate space
Somewhere between the earth and atmosphere
When I call your name
Why don't you respond?
Number to a face
You've disappeared

Look how we've failed
Look how we've sold our lives
Foolishly wasting time away

Holes punched in cards
blood sweat and pain
stealing time to
prey upon your soul
A forgotten kiss
A dream is missed
Drowning through a sea
of hopeless thoughts

Look how we've failed
Look how we've sold our lives
Foolishly wasting time away

hell no
hell no
hell no
