Do we come on earth
Just to breathe the air?
Just to get our share
And forget what we knew before our birth?
Do we come here for a reason,
Were we shaped by the sea?
Is that all there is to see
And is our body just a prison?
The mind is howling for much more
And as I'm walking out the Door
I murmur beneath my teeth
'There is no truth, it's just a myth'
But then I see you flying high
You are the wit that blows the sky
And you are the child that bears the truth
You are you own miracle,
Your own miracle
Do we come here for the drill?
Do we know of what we are?
Is the end of it too far?
Do we deserve our bit of thrill?
Is existence universe's black humor
And will we ever know for sure
What could consist our sacred cure,
Or was it just another rumor?
The heart is pleased with so much less
And I can see upon your dress
A stain of blood that grows and grows
Revealing what everyone really knows
Though we can feel you are unique
Your lower ground is still our peak
And you are the child that bears the truth...
