Lyrics

This world may be a phase you're going through
Before some higher plane you're heading to
But no firm evidence says this is true
And all you know is all that is in view

With this in mind
Are you gonna bide your time?

Well there is one distinction that we've got
As humans we can picture what is not
Weighing up the roles we might assume
Able to adopt them if we chose

With this in mind
Are you gonna script your life?
With this in mind

Are you living in bad faith
Are you running a rat race
Are you putting a brave face on?
Are you waiting in good faith
Just minding your own space
And aiming to stay safe, hey?

Now God's been dead a hundred years and more
And there were many roles we'd built him for
Meaning and belief have been erased
Leaving us to deal with a clean slate

Are you living in bad faith
Are you running a rat race
Are you showing your fine taste off?
Are you waiting in good faith
Just minding your own space
And tending to play safe, hey?

Freedom
It's an awe-inspiring thought
It's a terrifying thought
Should you spare it any thought
Freedom
It's an awe-inspiring thought
Is it safer to ignore
The suggestions of that thought?

Are you gonna steer your life?
With this in mind

Are you losing your bad faith
Are you ducking the rat race
Are you dreaming of new states now?

Are you hoping to make waves
Out throwing some strange shapes
And joking in poor taste, hey?
