Why can't we see things for what they are

Why do we do
All the things that we do
Is it all for effect
Is it just to amuse

walking around
With eyes closed tight
Too afraid of the truth
In the cold, cold light

Never know what’s good
till its dead and gone
Saving your best till last
When all is said and done

Holding onto reigns
When you push too far
Why can’t we see things
For what they really are

Head in the clouds
As you look to the stars
Why can’t we see things
For what they really are

Why do we say
All the things we say
Will it get what you want
Will you get your own way

Winding your way
Down long and narrow roads
Searching deep in your heart
Without letting go

hoping promised lands
will come and call
when you tie your hands
Then begin to crawl

always last in line
to reach the start
Why can’t we see things
For what they really are

look in the mirror
do you know who you are
can you really see things
For what they really are

Who knows where they’re going
Who knows where they’ve been
When you read between the curtains
There's a lot behind the scenes

Who knows what they’re doing
Do you know what you feel
When your dreams get lost for certain
You know it’s all too real

Why do we play
All the games we play
Is it all just an act
Is it all for display
