lyrics

I turn my eyes and ears to the sound and sight of failure all the time, I don't know why.
It seems the less they try the further they will get, while we're stuck with our own deceptive smiles. It's not alright.
It's time to think "let's settle for second best… or maybe less."
But it doesn't make sense.

Why do we settle for coal, when there's gold in our sights? In our hearts and minds?
There's nowhere to go but forward with both feet. Just come with me.

We know when our search becomes worth it, but nothing seems to fit.
It's like we'll never make it.
Forgotten by people along the way, even though they clearly promised that they would stay.
There's nothing left to chase, I want to leave this place.
But wait, just breathe one more time.
You're dreams haven't hit the end of the line.
Just trust me and time.
You're halfway, so you've got halfway to go.
Just stick with what you already know, and your dream will grow.

Why do we settle for coal, when there's gold in our sights? In our hearts and minds?
There's nowhere to go but forward with both feet. Just come with me.

Count on me to build you up, til you've reached the top.
Count on me to build you up, til you've reached the top, til you've given this all you've got.
I know you'll make me proud.

Why do we settle for coal, when there's gold in our sights? In our hearts and minds?
There's nowhere to go but forward with both feet. Just come with me.
