--song--

x4


walk into this room, oh, all eyes on me now
     
but i do not know the people inside
x2

look straight through me these eyes, seeking more wisdom than I

have to give away
         
realize, realize what you are


what you've become
        
just as i have
                 
are you and I so alike?

i don't hear you
       
just as I am
                           
afraid if we dance we might die

mock the world
           
lips they say "whyyyy?"
                       
don't you know when you give life
                         
then you become what you are



the sea is unsparing
we're all drifting away

away from you
i pray for you
x2
now

hoping to god on high
is like clinging to straws
     
while drowning
        
realize, realize what you are...


what you've become
        
just as i have
                 
are you and I so alike?
i don't hear you
         
just as I am               
afraid if we dance we might die

mock the world
                   
lips they say white liiiiies
                        
don't trust me, love yourself

then you'll become what you are

x4
what you are is the beast in a lover's arms
what you are is the devil in the sweet, sweet kiss
what you are is missing a piece
what you are is a puzzle to me


what you've become
         
just as i have
                 
are you and I so alike?

i don't hear you
         
just as I am               
afraid if we dance we might die
mock the world
             
lips they say liiiiies
                          
don't you know, when you give life
then you become what you are


what you are is a puzzle
