Where It Belongs

"See the animal in his cage that you built
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all
Right where it belongs
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afraid to see?"


Everytime i listen this
this is what i hear
"see the human in the world god has built
are you sure if your a demon or an angel
Better not look him in the eye 
are you sure what side of the glass you are on
see the pain in your life that you have built
everything is where it belongs
feel the emptyness in your heart
and its all 
the way life was meant to be Right where it belongs

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afraid to see?"

Right Where It Belongs
