Rolling through the city sprawl
On a late night train
The moon will survive us all

Waiting for a friend to call
I'm adrift again
I search for nothing at all

Modern life corrodes us all
You know that it's true
Give yourself a wake-up call
Let the past come back to rescue you

Seduced by a friendly fire
I just watch the window
Machines couldn't take me higher
Don't wanna to be a lonely liar
With a living tombstone
Your warmth fills my desire

Modern life corrodes us all
You know that it's true
Give yourself a wake-up call
Let the past come back to rescue you

I wake up to the morning star
Embraced by false phosphorescence
My dreams stay where they are
I don't know where to start
Alone and lost and guessing
Revealed by an open heart

Modern life corrodes us all
You know that it's true
Give yourself a wake-up call
You know what it'll do
Memory detains it all
Your know that it's true
Give yourself a wake-up call

Let the past come back to rescue you
The past come back to rescue you
The past come back to rescue you
The past comes back to rescue you
