lyrics

Bottled Dream
By Eiks

A lost soul in his teens is
Wandering the streets of Angel
Comes to you for a brief attention
Flicked away like a cigarette ash
He drifts along the pavement a slow race throughout the night
Until he has enough change to oil the spinning wheel

It's not too late
How some would pay for your youth
Time is rolling
You keep on fixing
It's not too late

In his bottled dream a cinema screen
Shows the faces of his old friends
Lying in an empty college corridor with tears down his cheeks
He doesn't really dream anymore
The numbness is his only comfort
Keeping everything bare, a soothing void

It's not too late
How some would pay for your youth
Time is rolling
You keep on fixing
It's not too late
