Fly on the Wall

  • The other night I had a dream
    There was a world full of kings and queens
    But it was cold
    Dark as the night
    We were the fire on the moonlit skies

    We weren't divided We were the same
    And we were free But we all wore chains
    We couldn't see it But we created
    A place between truth and overrated

    If I could just see it all
    Just like a fly on the wall
    Would I be able to accept what I can't control?
    And would I share what I saw?
    Or just sit back and ignore
    Like nothing never happened,
    I haven't seen you before?

    I'm on the run from a thief I let into my head
    I know, I hold the keys, so don't be scared
    When I turn and shout

    I don't think I need you anymore
    Take your words, and your lies and just beat it!
    I don't think I need you anymore
    Take the hurt and the pain, I don't need it!

    I wanna live, I wanna be the change
    We can all be kings and queens
    If we can just learn to believe
    If we can just learn to believe

    We had a plan to build a wall
    A great divide that would never fall
    To separate us from all the pain
    And keep our skeletons locked away

    And brick by brick we built it so thick
    That it blacked out the sky and all the sunlight
    And one by one we all became numb
    We were making the bullets to a broken gun

    If I could just see it all
    Just like a fly on the wall
    Would I be able to accept what I can't control?
    And would I share what I saw?
    Or just sit back and ignore
    Like nothing never happened
    And I haven't seen you before?

    I'm on the run from a thief I let into my head
    I know, I hold the keys, so don't be scared
    When I turn and shout

    I don't think I need you anymore
    Take your words, and your lies and just beat it!
    I don't think I need you anymore
    Take the hurt and the pain, I don't need it

    I wanna live, I wanna be the change
    We can all be kings and queens
    If we can just learn to believe
    If we can just learn to believe

    I don't think I need you anymore
    Take your words, and your lies and just beat it!
    I don't think I need you anymore
    Take the hurt and the pain, I don't need it!

    I wanna live, I wanna be the change
    We can all be kings and queens
    If we can just learn to believe
    If we can just learn to believe Writer/s: Joel Bruyere, Steve Augustine, Trevor McNevan
