Fear Unknowing



With every little view
And every little clip
I'll force this into you
No need to comply, and we know you don't deny
I want to know
Is this what you want?

Every light ignored leads to a sight forgotten
The voices complain, and your choices are in vain

Your views are set in stone along the roads that you deny
Sciences described, I've implied and forced to buy
Pleasure in misfeeding others, measure your competence in misleading lovers

Like a bird soaring through God's green earth
Why don't you live for the beauty of it all?
Every light ignored leads to a sight forgotten
The voices complain, and your choices are in vain

When my time is up, you just wait and see
I don't fear what comes next
Living life against the constant sorrows of death
They don't affect those with knowledge of the everlasting
Spend your time worrying over the unavoidable
Your time never worth it in the end

Like a bird soaring through God's green earth
Why don't you live for the beauty of it all?
Every light ignored leads to a sight forgotten
The voices complain, and your choices are in vain
