Parallels Lyrics

4. Parallels (4:57)
We are all comatose
We are overfed and under.
Undernourished
Yearning for something more

Never starving yet
Never quite satisfied
Carnal but without
Useful flesh or mind

I am a walking contradiction
That's found consistency
Consuming everything
All without producing sustenance

In the parallels we struggle
Struggle to upkeep
There is a better way
For us to be set free

From all it is we crave
There must be more to life
Than to simply stay alive
To simply stay alive

We are not the same
As I hope to show
There is a better way
If we just let go

We are not
We are not the same
We are not
We are not the same
Let go

In the tension between
Devouring want or simple need
It's clear the only lines
Between the ones we preserve.

We are not the same
As I hope to show
There is a better way
If we just let go

We are not
We are not the same
We are not
We are not the same
Let go
We are not the same

And in the parallels we struggle to upkeep
There's a better way for us to be
For us to be set free
And in the parallels we struggle to upkeep
There's a better way for us to be
For us to be set free

We are not the same
As I hope to show
There is a better way
If we just let go

We are not
We are not the same
We are not
We are not the same
Let go
We are not the same
