LYRICS
The Answer Is You

Tonight I saw a man with no hope in his eyes
His irises reflected every fear and every lie
With light so dim and him so desperate, he began to choke
Then I saw him turn and stick that barrel down his throat

Within this bleak depiction of society
We are all exposed to famine, greed, hate and disease
But with our thoughts we can create our own reality
So step up, kid, or step aside, it's time for you to be set free

Let the fire blow out
I'll take the spark and I'll ride away, right away
Let the fire blow out
I'll take the spark and I'll fly away

Last night I had a dream of ways I can escape
By drugs, by sex, by gun, by noose, by pills or razor blades
It's hard to tell who's real or fake when living day to day
I pray to the god I don't believe in that it's not too much to take

I see the multitude led blindly by the lies
Of advertisements, churches, politicians - all alike
In their crooked ways, intending to keep your mind from the truth
So stand up, kid, or step aside, the answer is always you

Let the fire blow out
I'll take the spark and I'll ride away, right away
Let the fire blow out
I'll take the spark and I'll fly away

Tonight I think I'll make a different choice
Who says I can't make all the difference?

Let the fire blow out
I'll take the spark and I'll ride away, right away
Let the fire blow out
I'll take the spark and I'll fly away

I'll take the spark and I'll ride away, right away
Let the fire blow out
I'll live to fight on another day
