Reflection of Beauty

Lyrics

If we had all of the people surrounded,

Or maybe chained them all down to the floor,

We could believe that in strength love is founded and we are much stronger than any before.

Love is your belief that people change.

And we can’t give the sun our misfortune, and we can’t pay the rain in regret.

It’s too late to be sorry for something that everyone always just seems to forget.

Infected by a hand so close to blame.

 

Do the words make you high?

Did I say what matters this time?

Will time shade your eyes?

It’s a reflection of beauty, you answer so strong.

Truth or perception, could we be wrong?

Haven’t you taken your time?

We’ve waited so long.

 

You could swear you were tearing your heart out;

You could lie and tell me you believe

In truly sufficient indifference toward all of this destructive insanity.

Do you think they’d notice? Do you think they’d care?

And are you so sure your life treads heavy on this earth,

And in all your finest moments are you who you envisioned?

Just remember your light.

 

Do the words make you high?

Did I say what matters this time?

Will time shade your eyes?

It’s a reflection of beauty, you answer so strong.

Truth or perception, could we be wrong?

Haven’t you taken your time?

We’ve drifted so long.

 

Many a hand as many a feeling, daddy was once a little boy;

Girls in dance and girls in mourning making way for brighter toys,

See the faces of the children in lace and flowing gown,

Shake against the pale of morning, turn your head and then hang it down.

 

Do the words make you high?

Did I say what matters this time?

Will time shade your eyes?

It’s a reflection of beauty, you answer so strong.

Truth or perception, could we be wrong?

Haven’t you taken your time?

We’ve waited so long.
