Lyrics

Stages

In some alternate reality

She opened up her eyes and looked around

And we sat there so impatiently

Desperate just to hear her make a sound

In that world no one watched

Red numbers falling

In that world no one said goodbye

No one knows how we’re supposed to function now

The silence is too real

The absence of a presence so commanding

And we’re not equipped to deal

Right now it’s hard to think that

The earth will keep on turning

How could we possibly have known

The ones who are left behind are the ones who suffer the time

The ones who are left behind are the ones who suffer the time

They say there are five stages you must go through

To come out the other side

It’s so easy to ignore them

To sleep, to retreat, to hide

It seems we’re all we’ve got now

Comrades in isolation

Who’ve got nowhere else to go

The ones who are left behind are the ones who suffer the time

The ones who are left behind are the ones who suffer the time

The ones who are left behind are the ones who suffer the time

The ones who are left behind are the ones who get more time
