lyrics

if we are all just victims in a series of accidents
how is it you make me feel so inadequate
i never would have guessed that you would be my catalyst
now can someone please tell me where all my time went?
it seems like only yesterday our lives were worry free
but these days go by just like a blur to me
concerned with the future, it’s so far from my grasp
and here in the present i am forgetting my past
all of our choices speak volumes, made with clouded vision
were the stars aligned? or could we have avoided this collision?
i want to coexist with the world like oil and water
but everyone has a different definition of religion
i want to matter in this life in case it’s my last one
but i have no idea where to begin
or where i’m going or who i am or how i’m doing
but i’ll lie to your face if you’re asking how i’ve been

if our body is just the apparatus
that gets us from points A to B
what does it say about us?
and we’re too short sighted to see
only after it rains down Armageddon
and once our egos have melted
can we conquer this stream of consciousness
and let our souls finally be free

i can’t understand the words you speak
even though we say the same things
we both want what’s best for the world
but we pledge allegiance to different kings
our quarrel is not with each other
but there’s no one else to blame
and if it has to be either you or me
how can we be one and the same?

we’re wasting our time with worries of such trivial things
i want to drown myself in what’s important to me
everything circles back around to real love
we are here right now, we are alive, and that is enough
