You've seen it all, but look again
The pain that we all bear
The illusion we share
Has been real to me all along

Reality crashes down on me
Like the finest wave you never will see
Because of what you did
Because of what you said
Sorrow sings to you alone

Hope rises with the morning
But it won't wake me
You can't make me
Accept your sorry excuse for reality

For what you've been
For what you'll be
Doesn't matter to me anymore
Perhaps one day you'll open your eyes
And maybe then you'll see

It's not the reality that hurts
It's what you've dreamed it up to be
