  • Lost feelings return
    So now maybe I can learn
    To stop the world of a lie this time around

    Are we are we are we ourselves?
    Are we are we are we ourselves?

    Because seen through these eyes
    We lead a double life
    No one would know so check it out
    Stepping out, here I go

    Are we are we are we ourselves?
    Are we ourselves and do we really know?

    So they say, so they say, that to this earth we are bound
    Most spirit returns and now maybe we've learned
    To stop this whirl of a lie
    To this earth we are bound
    I ask you
    Are we are we are we ourselves?
