Through My Eyes

Through My Eyes (is The Perspective of Life)
January 14, 2010
Michael Joel Tjoelker

They say
If it looks real and feels real
It must be real
So all my dreams are reality
And I've found a whole new
Perspective on life

I'm trying to understand
The world around me
From my own eyes
And no one else's
And it scares me
Venturing alone
Walking on a path
That no one will follow
All I want is to know
All I want is to know
And no one will follow
But all I want is to know
All I want is to know

Well I haven't spoken
For a long time
I guess I haven't had
Any words worth saying
But the thoughts run
Sometimes I just can't
Get hold of one

I'm trying to understand
The world around me
From my own eyes
And no one else's
And it scares me
Venturing alone
Walking on a path
That no one will follow
All I want is to know
All I want is to know
And no one will follow
But all I want is to know
All I want is to know

What the hell does it matter
What a person does
As long as it
Doesn't harm anyone else
Now I'm looking out at the world from
The perspective of life instead of society

I'm trying to understand
The world around me
From my own eyes
And no one else's
And it scares me
Venturing alone
Walking on a path
That no one will follow
All I want is to know
All I want is to know
And no one will follow
But all I want is to know
All I want is to know

The End
