Lyrics

Tomorrow soon turns into yesterday
Everything we see just fades away
There's sky and sand where mountains used to be
Time drops by a second to eternity

It doesn't matter if we turn to dust;
Turn and turn and turn we must!
I guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight!
Dancin' in the ruins!
Guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight!

There's laughter where I used to see your tears
It's all done with mirrors, have no fears
There's nothing pure or sacred in our time
The nights we spend together are no crime

It doesn't matter if we turn to dust;
Turn and turn and turn we must!
I guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight!
Dancin' in the ruins!
Guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight!

Like marble statues all with gold inlaid
In castles built of silence, let us play
Even though our skulls rot in our flesh
We can build a laser, tear the mesh

It doesn't matter if we turn to dust;
Turn and turn and turn we must
I guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight! Dancin' in the ruins!
Guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight! Dancin' in the ruins!
Guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight! Dancin' in the ruins!
Guess I'll see you dancin' in the ruins tonight!
Dancin' in the ruins!
