"I Have Burned Bridges..."

Lyrics Information

I have burned bridges across oceans
and let fire become truth
air around baskets of eggs
thick that it is
thick that it is
good friends we were
and grudges far too long
when ignorance reigns over this
so hard to let brightness in
forward time swells
and anger into ambilvilence
yet this hunger for love never dies
but we can't go back
truth is only in my mind like it is in yours
truth isn't on paper for everyone
their opinions are their reality
I can't prove a thing
I can't help you i can only forget
and find new things to bring smiles
grass at our feet young one
new baby opens eyes
cart is turned over
eyes blink
hands are untied
my mind is as positive as ever
but my faith in truth universal
is slowly dying
