You’re living off the fear
That’s instilled in us by the things we hear
And we march to the sound of silence
Forgetting all we’ve never known

I wish you would stop accepting that it’s me
Because I don’t know if you’ll ever feel the same
The days I can’t stop the mind on yours
The ways I can’t be what you want
I’m afraid to fall, I’m afraid to stand,
I’m afraid of all the things that you think I can’t be
But I can’t be yours if I want to live
But we are... So real to me, we’re all I see
Like the air I breathe, it’s all I need
And I wish I could just live freely
(So real to me, you're all I see,
And I need you to breathe)

We’re dropping hints but falling back
We’re all the same - a blended mass
An infinite amount, but a passive care
And when did we all become so mindless?
We are so mindless

I wish you would stop pretending that it’s me
Because we both know that you’re just afraid
Afraid of all the times you believe it’s real
Afraid of all the things that make you feel
You’re afraid to fall, you’re afraid to stand,
You’re afraid of all the things that you think you can’t be
But you can’t be scared if you want to live
But you are… So real to me, you’re all I see
Like the air I breathe, it’s all I need
And I wish you would just live freely
(So real to me, you're all I see,
And I need you to breathe)
