This is not the life
You envisioned for yourself
You cry: Where am I? Where am I?
Your graceless downfall
Can be blamed only on you
You have been blind, since the beginning of time
Those good intentions have failed you once again
Leaving you to asking yourself: where is my ever after, ever after?
It took more than intention to build the pyramids
It took more than intention to discover the planets
We the concrete of mind
Aren’t satisfied with the apathy in your hearts
We the concrete of mind
Persist where others will falter
We the concrete of mind
Will never stop
We the concrete of mind
Won’t take our lives for granted anymore
Filled with doubt and desperation
You’ve lost control
For you I sympathize
Living in a world that’s shaded grey
With a heart of gold
You’ve found no silver lining
I was just like you
I never realized
I had the answers all along
When I felt that I couldn’t handle my dreams
A comforting shoulder
Your hand in mine
I just needed to hear myself say
You know the way
We have the strength inside
To bring about a greater happiness
For ourselves, and those we love
Confide in yourself first
Rely on yourself first
You are the only one
Who can inspire you
I‘ve struggled through misfortune
My slate is clean
I’ve turned a blind eye towards distractions
In myself I truly believe
We’ve built these machines as mirrors, as a way to understand ourselves
The truth behind what really concerns us, is our only innate advice
No stone tablet, outline or doctrine
Could bring meaning to your life
An impression is all you need,
It was the only thing we brought with us
You know the way
Inner strength transcends the limits of grace
There is a purpose in every breath that you take
Although the waters may get rough, tidal waves would never be enough
To deviate the course of your beliefs
To recreate the foundation that you have laid
