Lyrics:

I can't expect to figure it out anymore.
What is real is the mirror we've constructed.

Most of my days, worry seems to follow the cards that I play.
When will I learn, I'm only dealin' myself in the way.
Nights when I sleep, I am reminded,
Of love which seems to break under my hands.
If once I could just sing without these bricks on my heart,
They're so heavy but don't have to be.

I can't expect to figure it out anymore.
What is real is the mirror we've constructed.
And I suspect the reflection is all that I fear.
As I hurry all my time disappears.
In this gear life has become so unclear.

What can you do with all your money
When you can't even pick up the phone to call a friend.
If Once I could just see, without these visions inside my head,
Of who I'll never be.

One of these days, soon I'll be right with the words that I say.
Until, I can find where I belong in the past or meantime.
Do I move on or remain on rewind?
