The Great Pretence

Have you ever had the sense that none of this is real?
That life is some weird trip how lost can you feel?
Do you remember the time you could sense
the freedom of life a space so immense?

If you felt sad
you simply cried
Happiness or fear
nothing denied

But we have collected some silly ideas
entrenched in our thoughts about what it all means
this prison of me how I am or should be
we forgot it’s a play a dramatic comedy

But it’s just pretence
You’re still that innocence
You don’t fit in a box
What a paradox

We just pretend we have forgotten who we are
In my self created world I am the number one superstar
My pretentious castle has been build on the clouds
It doesn’t bring me safety it can bring only more doubts
But I don’t know how else to survive in this strange play
‘Cause I don’t know who I am, I don’t know any other way

It can seem depressing this meaningless life
It takes your ambitions, your goals and your drive
But Truth is the freedom to be everything
Thought is the servant but you are the king

It is a great relief
to get the joke of it
there’s nothing to achieve
Cause this is it
