Everywhere people are waiting
For their lives to begin
Everywhere people are dreaming
Of a day they'll never live

Everywhere people are screaming
At the voices in their heads
Everywhere people are searching
For an escape to the prison they imagine themselves in

Everywhere people are hoping
For a perfect place they'll never see
Everywhere people don't realize
They only have the life they're living
The days they've been given

The voice telling us it isn't enough
Is just us, is just you--and can be silenced with a thought
There is no prison and no better place
Just ourselves, you and me

Interrupting our bad days with smiles
Sprinkling our good days with tears

Ending the search, one day, when we realize that's all there is
