Iceberg Theory

I wanna start fresh
Ditch the folks who used to know me
The ones who watched me plow the fields
Of mediocrity 

I want another guess
Elevate me from what’s below me
A crack at the ring, a shot at the shield
A sterling opportunity

There ain’t no way around it
When a theory is unfounded
And people believe they know you
But they can’t glimpse what’s below
They can talk but they don’t know
Yes they talk but they really don’t know

On high alert,
The captain grips the situation
While the passengers grip the railing
Faced with certain doom

Mistakes can hurt
Some courses bring annihilation 
You count the lifeboats of your failing
But you don’t check if there’s room

There ain’t no way around it
When a theory is unfounded
And people believe they know you
But they can’t glimpse what’s below
They can talk but they don’t know
Yes they talk but they really don’t know

Like the victim under the scar tissue
Like the ghost behind the glory
You see the glowing headline
But you don’t hear the full story

There ain’t no way around it
When a theory is unfounded
And people believe they know you
But they can’t glimpse what’s below
They can talk but they don’t know
Yes they talk but they really don’t know.

I fully understand Keith. Most of us put up front for one reason or another. Some people are without the ability to listen and hear the beating of our inner most self.
