What Do We Really Want

We like to think we're intelligent
some people think they are wise,
but maybe we are just arrogant
full of selfishness backed up with lies.

Each of us lead multiple lives
show each person a different you,
we wear many masks in society
even we do not know which is true.

We are always hoping for miracles
take for granted the ones that we see,
the fact that we are alive at all
Is miracle enough for me.

If all the matter in the cosmos
represents all the knowledge we own,
at least 90% of dark matter
would equal everything still unknown.

Maybe nothing is really impossible
If there's something you cannot achieve,
try total belief and an open mind
you can do anything if you believe.

So why aren't we pulling together
blaming religion seems so absurd,
for it isn't God's will that keeps us apart
It's the men who interpret his word.
