Tomorrow you'll see it through
The clouded out disguises put you in the room
And though I wandered out alone
A thousand lights abounded on our home
And I remember every sound it made
The clouded out disguises and the grave
So yeah, I know I'm still afraid
Of letting go of choices I have made
All delighted people raise their hands
And I took you by the sleeve
No other reason than to be your leading man
And you woke up with a fright
Our lives depended on the visions through the night
And all we had always
All we had always wanted to before
The hurricane inclined us
Grappling on the floor
All delighted people raise their hands
Still the force of nature spurned
Ideas of strength and style
Abated by the burning basement
All delight people raise their hands
I'm not easily confused
The trouble with the storm inside us grew
But I had so much to give
In spite of all the terror and abuse
And the people bowed and prayed
And what difference does it make for you and me?
All delighted people raise their hands
And the people bowed and prayed
And what difference does it make?
It doesn't matter anyway
The world surrounds us with its hate
Hello darkness, my old friend
It breaks my heart
I've come to strangle you
In-spite of what you'd like
And don't be a rascal
Don't be a laughing dog in spite of odds
All I'm deciphering
From the spirits in the light within
All delighted people raise their hands
In restless dreams
I walked alone, I walked alive
The clouded out disguises
Left me in a dream of lightness
All delighted people raise their hands
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And what difference does it make?
I love you so much anyway
And on your breast, I gently laid
Your arms surround me in the lake
I am joined with you forever
And the people bowed and prayed
And what difference does it make for you and me?
All delighted people raise their hands
I'm not easily confused
I feel alive, I feel it glowing in the room
All delighted people raise their hands
All delighted people
All delighted people raise their hands
All delighted people
All delighted people raise their hands
All delighted people
All delighted people raise their hands
All delighted people
And the people bowed and prayed
Oh, I love you a lot
Oh, I love you from the top of my heart
And what difference does it make?
I still love you a lot
Oh, I love you from the top of my heart
And on your breast, I gently laid
Oh, my head in your arms
Do you love me from the top of your heart?
I tried my best, I tried in vain
Do you love me a lot?
Do you love me from the top of your heart?
And the people bowed and prayed
Oh, I love you a lot
Oh, I love you from the top of my heart
And you can see through my mistakes
Oh, I'll tell it to you now
Oh, I'll tell it from the top of my heart
And what difference does it make
If the world is a mess
If the world is a mess
And on your breast, I gently laid
Oh, I'll tell it to you now
Oh, I'll tell it to you now
When the world's come and gone
Shall we follow our transgressions
Or shall we stand strong?
I tried to save the things I made
Oh but the world is a mess
Oh but the world is a mess
And what difference does it make
If the world is a mess?
If the world is a mess
I tried my best, I tried in vain
Oh but the world is a mess
Oh but the world is a mess
Suffer not the child among you
Or shall you die young
When the world's come and gone
Suffer not the child among you
Or shall you die young
When the world's come and gone
