The world's supposed to spin one way
And all of us move along
Then why does it feel like this
Like everything about it's wrong

The human race is on the run
At risk of being thrown away
The species left without a cause
Each person less unique each day

What is it that we wait for
What is it that awakens inside us to be more
I believe that we're sleeping
And wasting all of our time
What is it that we wait for

Consuming personalities
Shopping for skin to wear
We'd rather be somebody else
Than build upon what's already there

We all begin to fade away
Swallowed by the softening times
The consequences sing us to sleep
Arrested by a lullaby

We've been sleeping for years
Walking on lines
Dying to live with the softening times
Why do we go and bury our lives
Secretly knowing why
