lyrics

I do the things
I do not want to do
And I feel the things
I know
I’m not supposed to feel

If I hate what I do
If I turn and run to you
Will you fight for me

There’s a battle
In a parallel universe
For your soul
You can’t say it isn’t real
Because these particles
We don’t know

Love, for the day is near
No longer slaves
To a freedom that we fear
O the depth
O the riches
Of our freedom
Who would’ve thought
That your freedom
Was your prison

If I see
The things the devil
Tries to hide from me
Jealousy, bitterness and envy
Eats your heart out
Till you’re asleep
Till you’re a hoax
Synthetic sham
A hollow shell, persistently
Rummaging for your soul
Amongst the dead, dark sea

I want to be held
Because you’re dying to show
How much your heart beats for me
I won’t believe this world
Is just the fallacy that we see

Love, must be sincere
Or you’ll be enslaved
By a freedom that you fear
O the depth
O the wonder of wisdom
Who would’ve thought
That your freedom was your prison

Love, the day is near
No longer slaves
To a freedom that we fear
O the depth
O the riches of our freedom
Who would’ve thought that your freedom was your prison
Who would’ve thought that your freedom was your prison
Who would’ve thought that your freedom was your prison
