Middle of the night and it's getting so hard to breathe
You can't sleep, can't think, can't hardly dream
Do you fear what the world wants you to be?
Open your eyes and just see what the world is
Open your mind and you're free

There's more in this world than we see
Just leave these illusions behind and run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by
We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find what we need in our lives

I spent a lifetime hoping it would come to me
Getting lost in the lies I believed
We're covered by a mask that we think is our sin
But never realizethat the truth is within
Open your eyes and just see what the world is
Open your mind and you're free

There's more in this world than we see
Just leave these illusions behind and run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by

And what are you hiding from?
Is it safe there inside your walls?
'Cause your chance is bound to come
If you're strong enough to live at all
We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find we we need in our lives
Open your eyes and just see what the world is
Open your mind and you're free

There's more in this world than we see
Just leave these illusions behind and run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by
Pass you by

There's more in this world than we see
Just leave these illusions behind and run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by
We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find what we need in our lives
