You been having trouble staying asleep
You been waking up at 4:12
You roll the voices over in your head
Then you try to put them neatly on the shelf

You watch the sun rise
You saw the darkness had no choice before the dawn
With your own eyes
And then you broke out laughing from a yawn

You said, Im so sorry, Ive been so down
I started doubting things could ever turn around
And I began to believe that all we are is material
Its nonsensical

So you walk outside and everythings new
Youre looking at the world with new eyes
As if youd never seen the sky before this blue
As if youve never seen the sky in your whole life

And then the phone rings
As it turns out you're already late
And now youre wondering
Is peace just a temporary state

Waiting tables and parking cars
You been selling cell phones at the shopping mall
And you began to believe that all you are is material
Its nonsensical

Im so sorry, I, Ive been so down
I started doubting things could ever turn around
But I still cant believe that all we are
And that all of our dreams are nothing more than material
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones

Souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones
And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones

And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones
And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones

And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones
And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones

And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones
And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones

And souls arent built of stone
Souls arent built of stone, sticks and bones
And souls arent built of stone
