The life we be yearning for
We never will know
Everyday we change to adore
Like tomorrow with a different role

We defend ourselves time and again
Changing for the powerful and belittling the less
The shreds of life we believe to have remain
Don’t we all keep ourselves always at best?

With the weak to never be
The strong grows more in power
Strengthening more for lesser to see
How have we the becoming for the hour?

Giving more in hopes and losing nothing
Haven’t you just lost everything to gain all?
Everything out there... only you see something
We who pretend to understand... applaud

This is life we yearn for
And we admit to never know
Regaining what we know not to adore
A tomorrow to yet simply be a different role
