I can see the shadows on the wall
Drifting as the leaves start to fall.
Unfazed by rugosity, the objects yield to gravity
And depict the destiny of us all.

No one really knows why we die.
No one gets a break so we try.
Ignoring mortality, we worship mediocrity
And wait to see what happens up on high.

In so many ways we live to follow the sun,
In so many ways we exalt and fail as one.
In so many ways we want so bad to be done,
In so many ways we show our pain in unison.

Something in you is busy counting the days,
Catapulting you through the haze.
Blind to virtuosity, ignorant of your sanctity,
Revealing you, in so many ways.

In so many ways we live to follow the sun,
In so many ways we tend to rise and fall as one.
In so many ways we want so bad to be done,
In so many ways we show our pain in unison.
