lyrics

The day has come at last
The day has come the time at last
What will be will always clash
With what you see when your mind unfolds
You've been dealt a hand of gold
I've been told to look forward, not back
I'm keeping track of all the times you said
That you'd be there until the end
Well where are you now? Where are you now?

As my dreams crash down
What will I have left?
Still I'm waiting, always waiting as time goes by
Yet I'm alright

My hands are tied to the face of the clock
And I'm stuck, stuck, stuck when the hands stop
The anticipation's killing me
Never leaves, never leaves, never leaves me alone
My thoughts begin to multiply
I cannot live inside my mind
Halloucinations showing me
What I see, what I see, what do I see?

As the waves crash down
And you find what's left
Only then will you temper what you expect

Still I'm waiting always waiting as time goes by
Yet I'm not alright
No more waiting, I'm not waiting,
Waiting for anything any more

Woah, woah, woah, woah

As the waves crash down
And you find what's left
Only then will you temper what you expect

(What did you expect?)
I thought this day would never come
(What did you expect?)
I built glass castles in my head
(What did you expect?)
A crack, a crack I fear has found
A hole inside my castle now
And it will come down, but I'll be on my way

I've been chased by these notions
Of what my life's supposed to be
I walk the trail of my own shadows
To myself they're leading me
The rut's grown deep I'm sick of climbing
From the depths of so-called "dreams"
You see the things I hold most dearly
Are never quite as they may seem

I've been chased by these notions
Of what my life's supposed to be
I walk the trail of my own shadows
To myself they're leading me
