How Do We Stand

from by Charles Lee

/

lyrics

We held in our hands all that we'd need
Took all we'd want, we were free
Careless and greedy we gave in to doubt
Left all that we had for a glimpse at the clouds

Built with our hands with pride in our hearts
Gathered up plans to aim for the stars
Spread out these wings and took to the skies
Flew up so high
Before we realized we're out of fuel to fly


Hold tight, get ready to hit the ground
At this height there's no chance of surviving
My life unravels before me now
Ten feet away the ground is calling


We gathered up trees, metal, and wires
All that we need as we conspired
To use up our rights and dry up this land
And run to the moon with spoils in our hands

We blindly believed that we had the means
Of living like kings, of reaching our dreams
Leap off this cliff with eyes to the sky
Lie to ourselves that we are gaining height
Can we reach the sky riding on our pride?


Hold tight, get ready to hit the ground
At this height there's no chance of surviving
My life unravels before me now
Ten feet away the ground is calling


We thought that we'd be dead by now
Thought we threw our lives away
How do we stand now?
Our feet have safely touched the ground
Can't believe that we were saved
How do we stand now since we thought
That we'd be dead by now
Can't let this go to waste now that
There's a Way
