Panopticon

  • Rise! Love is here
    Oh don't make me wonder
    Life's never clear where choice is a gift
    To use and abuse
    To build on proof
    Oh don't make me suffer
    Birds find the wind and wing
    Rest in the shells I've designed
    Run through the fields I've denied
    And stroll upon the years I'm alive

    There's a sun that shines in
    There's a world that stares out at me
    And all I refuse to please

    Breathe! Love is air
    Oh don't make me suffer
    To dash debonair where chaste is the wish
    To bust with pain
    A heart goes blank
    Oh don't make me wonder
    To ask on behalf of you
    Of you, where are you?
    Where are you in you?

    There's a sun that shines in
    There's a world that stares out at me
    And all I refuse to please
    There's a sun that shines in
    There's a world that stares out at me
    And all I refuse
    And all I'd ever use in me
    There's a sun that shines in me
    There's a sun that shines
    There's a sun that shines in me
