lyrics

We’re the ones who hold the mirrors
back on ourselves.
We’re the ones who point our sights
on far and distant horizons
Marking all the moments
keeping them for later
Writing all of the stories
so we can be remembered
Faith is what keeps us from going off the rails
for promise of the heavens
We’re willing to go through hell
We’re smart enough to build a world to hide our ignorance
But not enough to cope with a meaningless existence

I feel the ground shaking
Coming from the sound of
seven Billions of beating hearts
twice as many stomping feet
We are the engine of the earth
We’re the rhythm of the heartbeat

I see my mother
I see my father
My whole life I’ve watched them growing older
Their time is shorter
Their not as strong
As the Gods that I saw in them
When I was young
But I’m right beside them
gaining age and wisdom
and soon I’ll take their place as the older generation
and maybe I’ll have kids that look at daddy growing older
We are the product of the ancients
and we’re standing on their shoulders

I feel the ground shaking
Coming from the sound of
seven billion beating hearts
twice as many stomping feet
We are the engine of the earth
We’re the rhythm of the heartbeat

To connect to the pulse underground
Our roots must dig deeper
and take hold of the very soul
Of the only home we’ve ever known.

I feel the ground shaking
If you can shoulder the weight
Then lean in and keep moving

We’re the ones here to see what we’ve done
We’re the ones who have a hold of the pulse
We’re at the deathbed of the world
Looking back at all that we’ve lost
We’re the ones left to find what comes next
We’re the ones who continue to build
We’re the ones who've came back from the dead
We’re the only ones left on the world
