You've got to learn to brighten up your ways
Kick out your dull padded life
There's much to know, and no doors in space
They were only mirrors, you imagined in your mind

Now that you've got no place to go
And you stand alone
Know that there's just one place to be
And it's in your soul, oh

Like drywood takes to fire, the truth will come to you
Like streams that seek the ocean, they will find ways through
Like morning meets the moon, my love will guide the way
It's time to wipe your eyes now and awake

I've come to take you over, there's much for you to do
I've come to take you over, then it's up to you, oh

Be like the light in the shadows
Throw down your mask and be real
Don't wish to win and don't mind to lose
That was just a cycle like a squirrel in a wheel

Now that you've got no place to look
And you stand alone
Know that's there's just one place to be
And it is your home

Like fish that seek the water, the truth will come to you
Like leaves upon the soil, they will find ways through
Like flowers seek the sun, my love will guide the way
It's time to wipe your eyes now and awake, oh

You say you're really with me but you only follow me around
How much you love me, yes
But I don't want the kind of love
I have to sit down and count

You think you're free and lucky but you're stuck behind a prison wall
How well you know yourself
But I see something else within you
That you don't see at all

You may give up your number, disowning all your wealth
You may sell all the pieces, but you'll
Never never never give up yourself
Never never never give up yourself

Like drywood takes to fire, the truth will come to you
Like streams that seek the ocean, they will find ways through
Like morning meets the night's stars, my love will guide the way
It's time to wipe your eyes now and awake

I've come to take you over, there's much for you to do
I've come to take you over, then it's up to you
