Dancing for Rain (Rise Against)

We’re losing daylight, but I can’t work any faster,
Under the veil of dust we go on,
Don’t close your eyes.
What if it all disappears in the shadows,
That reach from the stars?

If I held my ground, would you ask me to change?
This drought bleeds on, now we’re dancing for rain.
We drink the air, but it’s still not the same,
These worlds collide, but the distance remains,
We point the finger, never accept the blame and I know … I know …
