Remember


Re-

master your heart
this is a caged (city)
chains rattle, chains are broken(people)
years before the sun(promised)
us better(days)
we took those days(fate)
for granted(now we know
all the better)
some things never change

-member

of this fragile(heart)
what is night(when you hate)
what is day(time in the city)
millons of open(flames)
open lives kindled(hope escapes the walls)
when walls are all we have(what is enough)
when always becomes never(let the walls crumble)
never becomes sometimes(its okay to let the walls crumble)
because almost nothing(of the world)
is better that nothing at all.

    You speak of walls...we gather around us all kinds of things and they must be kept, behind walls.
    A closed mind is walled away.
    An open mind has no walls.
    Millions of open flames I like that. It reminds me of dreams burning in our hearts.
    These dreams will sufficate if walled away.
    Walls, walls, walls, will come tumbling down.
    Then in our opened consciousness we learn
    when we have nothing we have nothing to lose
    And when we nothing to lose we have every thing to gain. (Report) Reply
