Lyrics:

– No one can find us here, we’re safe, we’ve left no traces.
– Don’t put out your fire, but keep it close, somewhere inspired.
– We will be here until we’re big, and strong enough to walk for ourselves, and more.
– Yes, it’s the truth that counts.

* Who are the wishful kind?

– Don’t put out your fire, but keep it close, somewhere inspired.
– Beneath this whole damn game, oh, lies somekind of reality plain, and
– We will be here until we’re big, and strong enough to walk for ourselves, and more.
– Yes, it’s the truth that counts.

* Who are the wishful?

– Ouh, you can say thank you later, thank you later.
– Ouh, you can say thank you later, thank you later.
– We will be here until we’re big, and strong enough to walk for ourselves, and more.
– Yes, it’s the truth that counts.

* Who are the wishful kind?
