  • Glowing in the shadows
    Twisted in confusion
    Grazing in the meadows
    Voices in profusion
    Colors, thoughts, emotions
    Are trapped within the heart
    Feeling no emotions
    End without a start

    Introspection, what am I really like inside?
    Introspection, why have all the prophets lied?
    There's a season when I will find out where I am
    And there's a reason, and I will someday find the plan

    Striving for perfection
    And hiding when it comes
    Seeing its reflection
    And the fire it becomes

    Turning of the seasons
    And turning outside in
    Burning with the reasons
    Burning for revenge

    Introspection, what am I really like inside?
    Introspection, why have all the prophets lied?
    There's a season when I will find out where I am
    And there's a reason, and I will someday find the plan

    Tripled by the onslaught
    Speeding feud of time
    Dying by the unloved
    Of voices in the pride

    Introspection, what am I really like inside?
    Introspection, why have all the prophets lied?
    There's a season when I will find out where I am
    And there's a reason, and I will someday find the plan

    Introspection, what am I really like inside?
    Introspection, why have all the prophets lied?
    There's a season when I will find out where I am
    And there's a reason, and I will someday find the plan

    Introspection, what am I really like inside?
    Introspection, why have all the prophets lied?
    There's a season when I will find out where I am
    And there's a reason, and I will someday find the plan Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
