What if perceptions were only deceptions?
A blanket of optical comfort, this place
A world imagined, a reality fashioned
Clues to conclude a curious case
A look in the mirror so suddenly a fear
You're not something you thought you once were
A startling conclusion, a wall of illusion
You're trying to escape the spell you've been under

There's nothing to wake up to now
You're stuck like a rat in a cage
Reality just won't allow
for you to turn the page
Turn the page!

In glorious endeavor, you contemplate "forever"
The colors and sounds such a beautiful display
You drink up, you drop out, but you'll find nothing without
A deeper understanding, so you drift away
Your family and friends say your happiness depends
on the company you keep and the life you lead
But how could they have known? (?)
You wish to break these chains so you might be freed

There's nothing to wake up to now
You're stuck like a rat in a cage
Reality just won't allow
for you to turn the page
Turn the page!
Turn the page!

Spiral downward, spiral downward...
(x16)

I wanna get out
They repulse me
This light will blind
And what will I find?

I'll tell you the truth when I come back down
But you won't like it, you won't make a sound
Because you'll never be ready to hear
You'll drive me back up like I was before
You'll shut the blinds and you'll lock the door
Because you won't have a word I say

There's nothing to wake up to now
You're stuck like a rat in a cage
Reality just won't allow
for you to turn the page
(x2)
Turn the page!
Turn the page!
