When Continents Collide

from by Empty Speech Act



She hides away inside her broken soapbox
Checking yesterday's predictions, reading yesterday's bad news
A life so harshly ruled by her opinions
Blinded by a light she thought that only she could see

She lost her train of thought, derailed emotions
Said goodbye to her family, made a beeline for her dreams
Ideals she never had the time to question
She passed them onto everyone but no one cared to hear

(we need to give it more time)

There's always space, there's always time
There's always somewhere we can hide
There's always fear, there's always pride
These continents always collide

She died alone with only hate and slogans
Nobody there to miss her, nobody there to care
I found her note and sent it with this letter
I hope you can forgive her only sin - she just believed
