How does it feel when life doesn't seem real?
And you're floating about on your own
Life seems uncertain, so you draw the curtain
Pretending there's nobody home

Don't theorize, look in your eyes
They can't tell lies
Though you disguise what you see
Your reality

We needed a savior and by our behavior
The ones that were worth it are gone
But song birds are talking and runners are walking
A prodigal son's coming home

Don't theorize, look in his eyes
And they won't tell lies
But if he defies what you see
Here is a key

Be yourself, why don't you be yourself?
Come on and be yourself, why don't you be?

We needed a tutor, so built a computer
And programmed himself not to see
The truth and the lying, the dead, all the dying
There is only one way to be

So don't theorize, look in his eyes
Are they telling lies?
The ones that you see on T.V
So you want to be free

Be yourself, why don't you be yourself?
Come on and be yourself, why don't you be yourself?
Oh, be yourself, come on and be yourself
Why don't you be yourself? You can be
