Detached from reality,
Undoubtedly because we can't be
alone with our own insecurities
It's all been seen and said and done.
Does life lose its luster when shared with everyone?
Bonds empty and fleeting
No passion, no meaning
Social butterflies, or social parasites
We are sucking the life out of life.
We've lost our way
Cause we live vicariously,
our heads hurting,
our eyes burning while we
stare downward endlessly into our own voids
our hands shaking, ears aching from the white noise
and we've become blind to what matters most,
and we've been wandering aimlessly through the dark
as ghosts of what we could be-
loving, and living, and free.
We live vicariously,
and we've been living absently.
I swear I'll be (I swear I'll be)
Loving, and living, and free
