"Ain't Enough" as written by and Richard Michael/deleo Patrick....
The only thoughts I've had
Have put me in pools of red
If one day I could break loose
The only dreams I've had
Seem locked inside my head
If only I could hear you

[Chorus]
More than love
Is neater this time
Love ain't enough

The only peace or grace
Is in a cold embrace
Of some truth and honesty
We only hesitate
Because our hands must hate
If only our hearts broke through

[Chorus]

So give us
Some patience
Because our hearts can't teach us
So give us
Some patience
Because our hearts can't lead us

[Chorus: x2]

Ain't enough
Ain't enough

    My InterpretationSounds like "the human project" has failed...

    " The only thoughts I've had
    Have put me in pools of red
    If one day I could break loose "

    In this planet, in these material bodies, we spend our days dealing with people we hate, doing things we hate 12 hours a day. If only I could kill these motherfuckers...

    " The only dreams I've had
    Seem locked inside my head
    If only I could hear you "

    In our miserable lives there is no time for dreaming, we must pay our bills. No one else understand our dreams, it's silly to them. If only my prayers were heard...

    " More than love is needed this time
    Love ain't enough "

    This beautiful planet was created out of love for our enjoyment. But it seems love wasn't enough, these hairless mammals fucked all up... In the next genetic experiment more effort will be needed.

    " The only peace or grace
    Is in a cold embrace
    Of some truth and honesty "

    We live in such a fake world and failed system that even such a small thing like telling the truth or being honest is taken as an act of miracle.

    " We only hesitate
    Because our hands must hate
    If only our hearts broke through "

    We don't fight the system around us because we need hate or tragic events to act. The world is fucked up but at least I have internet access and can watch rock concerts over Youtube... (because ticket prices became so expensive these days)

    " So give us
    Some patience
    Because our hearts can't teach us
    So give us
    Some patience
    Because our hearts can't lead us "

    The Human Experiment #4 has failed. Next time, the genetic experiment must be done on herbivore animals. That way they don't end up killing themselves and half of the planet altogether (maybe). Also, choose a planet with 28 hours a day, 24 is too little to learn it all.
