Lyrics

VERSE ONE
WHAT HAPPENED TO THEIR DAYS?
WERE THEY SWEPT UP IN THE RAIN?
DID THEY JUST DISAPPEAR?
WHAT HAPPENED TO THEIR LIVES?
DID THEY FORGET REASONS WHY?
THE SUM OF ALL OUR FEARS.
DIDN'T THEY FEEL NEEDED ENOUGH,
OR DID THEIR NEEDS OVERFLOW TOO MUCH?
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LIGHT
THAT WAS STREAMING FROM THEIR EYES,
DID IT JUST DISAPPEAR?

CHORUS

WHERE DID THEY GO, FOR SO LONG?
DID THEY JUST FADE INTO THE GREY?
WHERE THEY GO, FOR SO LONG.
DID THEY JUST FADE INTO THE GREY?
DID THEY JUST DISAPPEAR?

VERSE TWO
IN DARKENED CITY STREETS
ARE THEY LAYING DOWN TO SLEEP
AMONGST THE BRUISED AND BEATEN.
WE HANG THEIR PICTURES IN THE STREETS
THEY FALL GENTLY LIKE THE LEAVES
WITH THE CHANGING SEASONS.
PHOTOGRAPHS AND FADED TEARS.
THEIR LAST WORDS RINGING IN OUR EARS.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LIGHT,
THAT WAS STREAMING FROM THEIR EYES?
DID IT JUST DISAPPEAR?

CHORUS

WE'VE GOT TO GO DEEPER STILL.
WE NEED TO KNOW... HOW FAR DID THEY FALL?
HOW DEEP INTO ILL?
ALL IN ALL, WE NEEDED MORE TO FIND...
DID THEY SUPERSEDE US ALL THIS TIME?
WHICH DOOR TOOK THEM OUT?
DID THEY JUST DISAPPEAR?
