objectivism, shallow

Sentinel

Faster and faster
I'll be in Heaven
The world is the weight on my shoulders
Rip my skin, don't let me in
Tattoo your love with your nails
The sky's turning red, now I'm older.

Closer and closer
Street fires burning
A world unaware keeps on turning
Outside, my sighs
The jackhammer sings
Memories slowly returning.

CHORUS
-----------
Under the sun there's nothing new
What you don't know, won't hurt you
We don't need to know what's inside
We can find a world, when theirs collide.
History repeating
My heart keeps on beating for you.
-----------

Further and further
Escape pods are leaving
The stars in the sky make me wonder
Transfixed by the blades spinning round
And the ceiling fan hum.
The sky's turning black, now I'm younger.

CHOURUS

Sha na na na
Thought that you'd know me by now
Know me by now
Know me by now
Sha na na na
Thought that you'd know me by now
Know me by now
Know me by now.

Deeper and deeper
Through time and space
On your feet, on your feet soldier
All roads lead to an end
I will see you again.
The world is the weight on my shoulders.
