Requiem 05:11
Don’t let the sun set on my life I’m not ready to go Have I done everything I can to be remembered? Oh I don’t want to leave unknown And tell me; have I changed your life? Did I ever make you feel better? Tell me that every now and then you’ll think of me Tell me that you’ll remember The way we were I feel I’m running out of time And the truth is setting in When I think back on my life I feel I did alright Just never wanted it to end As I look into your eyes I can see that you’re afraid Don’t you worry, darling; everything will be alright I’ll close my eyes and be on my way And know that you have changed my life You have always made me feel better And I am thankful for the time that you have spent with me And I will always remember The way we were
The innocence in your eyes says it all You’ll try to keep me from falling But shelve your good intentions And you’ll reach, but your reach is too short for me You might as well let me be There’s no time for intervention You can’t save me No matter how you try I’m gonna live and die By my own devices In time, in time I might realize See the world through different eyes But your time is wasted waiting Oh you can’t save me from every rainy day And you can’t save me from throwing this away
Teetering on the edge of existence The pedestal we stood upon has collapsed A testament to the failure of persistence Into historic blunders we have relapsed All of our walls have come crumbling down Can you tell me, what’s that over the horizon? What’s the glow coming from behind the hill? Is it a new dawn or is it a war for fighting? Should I rest at ease or prepare to kill? All of our faith has come crumbling Come on get on the train This one is breaking through Answer the call to change It only takes a few Come on get on the train This one is breaking through Breaking through all the chains That are holding us Tell me, are you going to join the revolution? Do you believe that we can find a better way? With the right hope we can change this institution And maybe we will rise again as one someday All of these walls must come crumbling
Now our heads are spinning round Our wheels are spinning on the ground We’re going nowhere Yeah we’re going nowhere Just when I think our time is full I find we’re falling down a hole That’s going nowhere Yeah we’re going nowhere But here we are again Chasing dreams around a bend Nothing goes our way We’ll live to try another day Today? We try to keep a brighter view Fame and fortune yeah We’ll find you someday Yeah we’ll find you someday And when we face the darkest nights We’ll keep our eyes on city lights We’ll reach them someday Yeah we’ll find them someday


This album is a brief compilation of some of our favorite tracks from our previous incarnation (Glass Halo)'s full-length album, "The World Through Different Eyes." We're currently in the process of recording new material, but wanted to be able to give you something until the new songs are available.
