I’m giving up, I’m moving backwards
Retreating to the blue sea

So for the last time, I’m counting on my fingers
And beating a path through the beauty

It isn’t a miracle
This isn’t the United States
And all blood is pure blood
I will not waste my time

Who’s pulling your strings? Just what were you thinking?
You’ve built all your castles on sand

Now I’ve realised I’m glad that you knew me
Can feel the regret running through me

La la la…

It isn’t a miracle
The creation of a greater state
And all love is true love
I will not waste my time
