Made of Sand

We are the wild, we are the untamed
We move in circles, we collect names

We are the broken, we are the burning
We are the empty, we are still learning

To put one foot in front of the other
To look farther than the tip of our noses
To aim higher than where our eyes meet

Everybody out there is competition
In breaking tradition
We have to run if we want to get first

We are the simple, we are the curious
We are the seeking, but not serious

We are the restless, we feel so alone
We want to be people, but not on our own

Taking one step, then take another
We still mistrust our brothers
In every handshake there is a war

So everybody starts smoking
But then everybody starts choking
Everybody is fallen on the floor

We are still growing, we are naïve
We are uncharted, just learned to breathe

We are the soldiers, we are so afraid
We don't know what lies beyond the grave

And all the people huddle in fear
And try to find something worth living for
They find it anywhere, they find it in anything

We find the truth in the sewers
We find the truth in our brewers
We find the truth never holds up to our views

We are the youth, we are the face
Of every person, of every place

We try to move the mountains
We tear down all our castles

But they were only made of sand
We are only made of sand
