I walk into this room, all eyes on me now
But I do not know the people inside
Look straight through me these eyes
Seeking more wisdom than I have to give away
Realize, realize what you are

What you've become, just as I have
Are you and I so unalike?
Huddled here you, just as I am
Afraid if we dance we might die

Mock the world, live safe, say why
Don't you know if you live life
Then you become what you are?

The sea is unsparing
We're all drifting away
Away from you, I pray for you now
Hoping to God on high
Is like clinging to straws while drowning, oh
Realize, realize what you are

What you've become, just as I have
Are you and I so unalike?
Huddled here you, just as I am
Afraid if we dance we might die

Mock the world, live safe, say why
Don't you know when you live life
Then you become what you are?

What you are is a beast in the lover's arms
What you are is the devil in a sweet, sweet kiss
What you are is missing a piece
What you are is a puzzle to me

What you've become, just as I have
Are you and I so unalike?
Huddled here you, just as I am
Afraid if we dance we might die

What the world gives to you
Don't you know when you give life
Then you become what you are?

Don't trust me
Trust you
Up to you
Trust you
