Lyrics

The riverbed is full of dust
That longs to be swished full again
Where venture reigned there now remain
A million dreams that should've been

I wonder through red jagged rocks
And soil drenched with memories
I ask myself what made me sail
From shores of opportunity

To find beauty in decay

Releasing my ambition
I succumb to my own mystery
And leave the peaks and valleys
To the bleak inhospitality

I find beauty in decay
Beauty in the ruins

A quiet moment brings a smile
As my imagination sees me
Dancing on a marble floor
In days of golden luxury

I wonder through red jagged rocks
And soil drenched with memories
And I realize what made me sail
From shores of opportunity

I find beauty in decay
Beauty in the ruins
