I walk through my life

Seeing myself from an outside view

I see the people

Sleep walking with everything to lose

I scream and I yell

Trying to wake even just one of them

But they continue

In the blurry dreams they carry within

I search everywhere

Finding only blind eyes and deaf ears

Thoughtless actions

Pointless ambitions, none even care

I just want someone

To wake from these hopeless dreams

Have them recognize

This life is not at all what it may seem

But they go on

Sleep walking with everything to lose
