We're constantly searching
In hopes of unearthing
Something pleasurable
Feelings measurable

We're set on our findings
Collecting our minds ease
With something expendable
Because we can't have accessible

'Cause if it stays in front of us
We don't really have to know
What causes this lust in us

It can be a fixture
Representing a thousand things
Each guaranteed to make us happy
Upon its unearthing

If we could just see it
We could conceive it being ours
But if it can't be in our hands
It can remain in our plans

If it stays in front of us
We don't have to worry
About it disappointing us

If it stays in front of us
We won't have to worry
About it sneaking up on us

But if you're constantly hurting
Despite all this searching
It's cause our maps are all wrong
And they've been like this all along

If you could just see it
I guarantee you could believe
'Cause it's not some fairy tale
It's the only thing that's real
