What we don’t know Is that time can stand still And that restless men wait patiently As the violence unfolds And good people mean well And the choice is in our memory And the blood will flow back in our veins We can redesign life’s destiny Though people first refuse to change It’s just those fools and their machines Making radio waves And what we don’t know Is that luck first started When a gambling man refuse to play And the smartest thief said If you want more money That the greatest scam is honesty And the blood will flow back in our veins We can redesign life’s destiny Though people first refuse to change Just the fools and their machines Making radio waves And what we don’t know Is that the universe ends In a galaxy six feet away And through all the ages Till the great perfection For every mistake we’ve ever made

The mystery of all that’s good when every life’s a part to play I guess that I misunderstood I thought that I could be myself some day now that I can see threw the vial now that I can see you And now where all these houses stood are all these buildings lined like graves to build a future half as good and there are things I dare not say to you now that I can see through these walls now that I can see through And the spirits told me when I was a child to be open to the strange and the unknown - And to live my life with the grace of a child for a reason with the faith of an angel - And if I am ever to lose my way interfering with the lives of the future - To know that the truth will be told either way for a reason in the form of an answer The mystery of all that’s good when every life’s a part to play I guess that I misunderstood I thought that I could be myself some day now that I can see you

Well everything you hate about me you know you’ll find it in yourself I had to learn this all the hard way I had to learn from someone else and all the others you know they’re not like that you’d like to think you’re generous the truth be known you want it back Well I swear I’m not like that I believe in honesty and love forever before the end that love will bring us all together I’ll justify it with an answer If you swear you’ll never tell for every time you say I lied I told the truth to someone else and all the others you know they’re not like that I live alone inside the mind my selfishness is still intact And I swear I’m not like that I believe in honesty and love forever And before the end that love will bring us all together Well everything I hate about you you know I found it in myself I had to learn this all the hard way I had to learn from someone else and all the others you know I’m not like that I’d like to think I’m generous the truth be known I want it back

All the lullabies never called my name And worry never solved, never solved anything And the heart of any lie is when it’s spoken And the truth of any lie, is when it’s someday learned from So I lie till I believe I’m the only one who’s jealous Of the riches that were stole from me And everybody dies Am I the only one that’s nervous Of the life their going to bleed from me And all the stories told never showed me the way And I never once was wrong, I never once was afraid And the heart of any lie is when it’s spoken The truth of any lie is when it’s someday learned from So I lie till I believe I’m the only one who’s honest about the truth I’ve yet to face in me And everybody dies Am I the only one who’s nervous Because nothing’s going to save me Well I must of played a victim to the world I’ve justified it all so many times before As the mind will think it’s best to take control though the master is my soul
