lyrics

every day that you have lived i have died
knowing that you started life in captivity
you have never felt the sun in your eyes
too dark to see the lack of basic humanity

the world is a circus of mirrors and smoke
i know that it hurts but you're the butt of a joke
you think you have purpose but you probably don't
you wanna believe it's a lie but

you can't see that you're in a prison
if you were born inside of a cage
you've dealt with the hand you were given
nobody ever showed you the light of day

any moment you could simply awake
i want to save you but you're pulling your hands from me
i can't reach in and try to help you escape
if you believe that you're already free

just one step of reason and beauty unfolds
the infinite speaks into the core of your soul
then you can just breathe in and give up control
you open up your eyes your hand is on the wall and now you

scratch at the surface and dig in
the cracks reveal the luminous rays
break through with these hands we were given
they'll build a better world in the light of day

you better brace yourself and hold on for what's coming next
the sky is falling and the universe begins to stretch
limitless wonder overcomes you as the lines connect
and now we're all just tiny diamonds you can see see us all shine

and nobody's life is a lie
and we all see eye to eye
and we love and cherish our lives
i'm so happy that i could die


you can't see that you're in a prison
if you were born inside of a cage
you've dealt with the hand you were given
nobody ever showed you the light of day

now scratch at the surface and dig in
the cracks reveal the luminous rays
break through with these hands we were given
they'll build a better world in the light of day

what if the world we've seen is a lie and we were denied reality
what if we found out we could revive our peace and survive the insanity
what if the hopelessness that we live is just a controlling fantasy
what if we all believed we could change and be what this world really needs to be
