Maybe it's time to let them go
Maybe that's what you do
When the world's gone mad

Circle of ink in a rippling pool
Documents burning in an alleyway
Crackling and spitting
Looking at loved-ones
Looking at nobodies

No-one you're looking for is here
Shadows and knives
Maybe they were make believe
Maybe it's time to let you go

They're never gonna come back
No matter how hard I shout and I cry
They're never gonna come back
Now they're nothing but a name in a file
It's only wishful thinking
No matter how hard I shout and I cry
They're never gonna come back
No matter how hard I shout and they
Say once you're gone you will stay disappeared

Murder
Justice
Perfect system
A name in a file
