And though we try, the perception will not fade away
Consumed in doubt, consumed in desperation
Time doesn't slow when long-gone moments seem yesterday
Straining for breath, straining for animation
Anxiety at the thought of living unfulfilled
Condemned to repetition, condemned to tired acceptance
Automated we persevere through a world in grey
Yearning for a new moment, yearning for another way

In suspended animation, repeating the same day
We don't pause long enough to even recognise
This cage is our construction, and it has an open door
The choice is to walk through, or sink helpless to the floor

To understand, we all search for meaning
The superficial won't wake us from the dream
It's only you who can define the way
Take hold, seize the moment between past and destiny

Pull your head from the sand, see the world at your feet
I need to feel alive, I need time to draw breath
Find solace in the moment, life burns with every heartbeat
Time will not pass me by through lack of consciousness
