Aching to return to the sky (just a part of the whole)
And this hole in me is caused by separation
How many years gone by, since last I was held in the light
I’ve been begging for peace of mind
Will it come before I return, home, to, the blinding light
Promise you’ll follow where I lead, follow me
I swear you’ll thank me, when we’re enveloped by the collective
Here is where we find peace
An escape from reality, here is where the heart is
Home, there’s no place like home
But there’s no brick road to set us free
We must look to ourselves
The answers lie within
Don’t look around for what you need
The parasites will feed off of your desires
Could I remember devotion, or spend my life searching for what’s missing
Could I remember devotion, devote my life to searching for what will make me feel whole.
You cast your stones though you are not without sin
Your body houses brittle bones and no soul within
And everything that you love will fall apart in the end
When you look in the mirror everything that you see
Is a careful calculation, for the world to perceive
You try to hide your eyes
Your windows to the soul
But we are the same you and I
It’s time to transcend the boundaries of your mind
With hope you’ll join us on the bright side
I don’t want you to be stuck on the outside looking in
I hope it’s not too late
It’s too late, it’s too late, it’s too late.
