Lyrics

by STYVYN


From the commencement of life
We're expected to pretend
We are taught to believe
Things we cannot comprehend

We are told that somewhere up above
A friend is guiding our lives with his love

And the moment we die
We will get our reward
In eternity's hand
We will be with our lord

But it's not true
It's completely insane
It's all fantasy

There is no imaginary friend, imaginary faith, imaginary hope, imaginary love

Now as I look at the world
And I see reality
I am fully aware
Of my own mortality

Every moment is sacred to me
Each day brings a chance to be who I want to be

But I need time to unlearn
All those things that are untrue
My thoughts were not my own
But part of the mass collective delusion

Reason has shown me
There's no imaginary friend, imaginary faith, imaginary hope, imaginary love

If there is no god in the sky
Why should we care, why should we even try
To be moral human beings
The answer is reciprocity

I have faith in the human race to be loving neighbors
Without imaginary friends, imaginary faith, imaginary hope, imaginary love

I have faith in the human race to find understanding, to be loving neighbors
Without imaginary friends, imaginary faith, imaginary hope, imaginary love

I really like the lyrics of this song, thought it was worth sharing.

That little arrow at the right of the player is a download link. Just sayin'.
