There's something in this one of the urge to grow beyond the place you come from and everything that restricts you there.


What is your future ? What are your plans for life ?
Where are you going ? What's on the other side ?
What is your purpose ? Are you not thinking right ?
I'm just a dreamer, on the fanciful side.

But I didn't think about it.
Cos I've been blessed.
And your cold heart leaves me blind,
To your point of view I've been enslaved.

Take a look inside your head now. Do you see what you can see ?
Does it make you take your breath in ? Can you see it bleed ?
A thousand million arguments could not express.
The things that I have raged about - your righteousness.
It's just a slow burn, like a hurricane rising.

I wish you'd listen to me.
I wish you'd stop and think about how it feels to believe you can succeed.
Did you never want to think about that ?
Did you never hold the hand of that ?
Did you never see, the possibility ?

Your mind is not my mind and
I see that every time your eyes meet mine,
But blood is blind,
Your blood is mine,
And I sympathise.
