have you ever felt like you're just living a routine?
it never happens all at once
we sink a little further every day
we acclimate to all our doubts and worries
but they never really go away
how did we get here?
we've gotta get out
we've been asleep for such a long time
now we're stuck that way
holding ourselves captive
living in a prison that we designed
but the walls and bars are all inside our minds
and we've gotta get out
is there a heartbeat in my chest
or ice, or stone, or circuitry?
am I alive or am I dead, or dying
my eyes are open but I'm still asleep
oh no, gotta get outta here
time is running out for everybody every second we live
it's not enough to say you're waiting when there's so much to give
we're going through the motions, wearing down the gears
but we're more than machines
