lyrics

The streets have the same name, its the only thing that hasn't changed
(I could get lost just standing still)
Buildings are missing, the landscape has been rearranged
(They're building houses out of hills)
All of this time erasing history and no one here seems to mind
When all of this crumbles, pave it over, build new streets down compass lines
What once was ours
Buried in layers and wasted time
What once was known
Now seems uncertain and less defined
For years we dragged stones piling them higher
(We'd hoped they would be standing still)
Others have added, continued the building
(Towers so high they hide the hills)
And under the stories is the foundation that we placed here years before
But they're never satisfied they keep building adding halls and rooms and floors
What once was ours
Buried in layers and wasted time
What once was known
Now seems uncertain and less defined
