A Normal Day

by Dr. Something

lyrics

No, there is nothing more that you will give,
But you request that we continue working as if it's a normal day
One thing cascading right into the next,
Put them on mute and carry on filling every second in this way

We all need something to look forward to,
Something beyond just making do
And all of your grand intentions are
Just plans to pull our attention from
Discovering who you really are

Shift words around and say it's something new,
You won't change a thing but expect us to keep marching off this cliff
Need rumbles through us all at once and you
Still deny it, but you can never sate a hunger with a myth

We all need something to look forward to,
Something beyond just making do
And all of your grand intentions are
Just plans to pull our attention from
Discovering who you really are

Inside the screen they say there's nightmares coming true,
But outside I see dreams forming too
Outside the window things look grim but beautiful too
Outside the world is saying

We all need something to look forward to,
Something beyond just making do for now
And all of your grand intentions are
Just plans to pull our attention from
Discovering who you really are
