The Phoenix

My emptiness is the shade of green

You only see on movie screens

Covered by fanatical scenes

These blank expressions lie below

Afraid to take the leading role

They’re trampled by the words we used to mean

If complacency’s your biggest fear

It’s time that we addressed it here

We can’t keep pushing it down the line

And as we’ve aged and we’ve matured

The flame’s extinguished, there’s nothing more

Than the grave of the candle

Charred in perfect time

Oh the passion’s died

I know you never brought the storms

But the clouds decided they’d still form

It seems that we’ve been battered by the hail

Oh, a rugged mind and a feeble heart

Can never finish what it starts

I’m hoping cooler heads will prevail

If complacency’s your biggest fear

It’s time that we addressed it here

We can’t keep pushing it down the line

And as we’ve aged and we’ve matured

The flame’s extinguished, there’s nothing more

Than the grave of the candle

Charred in perfect time

Oh the passion’s died

Oh the passion’s died

Oh the passion’s died

But from the ashes, the phoenix will rise

But from the ashes, the phoenix will rise

But from the ashes, the phoenix will rise

But from the ashes, the phoenix will rise

If complacency’s your biggest fear

It’s time that you got out of here

Cause you keep pushing it down the line

And as we’ve aged and we’ve matured

It’s clear that you need something more

So buy a different candle

One more time

Let the flame burn bright

Let the flame burn bright

Let the flame burn bright
