For too long now we’ve all been trying to find
One proof that clarifies the sludge of a world in flux
Do you really believe what you carry inside your frozen heart?
Few more attempts at being human and call it a long day
Correct you are, they told me, and I wanted to believe!
Point to counterpoint, another lost moment of drivel
Best they just capitulate and surrender their souls
So we stare harder, search deeper, wind up at the place we began
Just as helpless as the day before;
just as dead as a man entombed in amber
Change is gonna come, some say
Light at end of tunnel
is just another fading fire
