I think you need to understand
We’re all in this, hand in hand
And that we might stay up at night
Asking if this world is right
Or if its some sick trickster’s joke
And though we all think we are woke
Ask yourself, is this real?
Is this how I’m supposed to feel?
What is it that this life’s about?
I thought I knew, but now I doubt
What does all of this mean to me?
They say I am, but am I free?
My beliefs, and all my dreams
I thought were mine, yet now it seems
That everything is just a lie
A way to cope, an alibi
I understand, I really do
So long and hard I’ve thought it through
Our lives are up to us, you see
We, alone, we hold the key
My once dim light’s become a star
I see things how they really are
What once was so long locked away
Has pierced the dark into the day
Tasks ahead are much more clear
I’ve shed the shade of yesteryear
The dawn; it comes, it’s here at last
And answers everything I’ve asked
