Lyrics

So will I ever understand

The flow of the river, the lay of the land

Doing the dance we were taught long ago

We cling to our treasures, we won't let them go (we won’t let them go)

 

Sometimes illusion can keep us content

We look for some pleasure as we just make the rent

Searching for answers when the question is gray

It's all in the course of your average day

 

And you are inside of me, as the world we shape breaks free

And the triggers in our head, keep us dangling by a thread

 

Comfort is a distraction...breeding inaction...and getting no traction

 

Can we reach beyond today

To grasp a fate so far away

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Can our spirits be unchained

 

So will I ever feel complete

We look to advance but so often retreat

Lofty ideals that have guided my way

Fade to the background as we live day to day (we live day to day)

 

Little obsessions that consume all our thoughts

Reaching for life lines get us tied up in knots

Looking for something that might open the door

Sitting and watching as we wish we had more

 

And you are a part of me, as we try to find the key

But the habits in our mind, seem to keep us deaf and blind

 

Life lived as a reaction...to every infraction...is dissatisfaction

 

Can we reach beyond today

To grasp a fate so far away

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Can our spirits be unchained
