Listen to the song.
So I woke up in a hole in the floor
47 doors waiting for a lit up number
I can’t climb up the walls
Never ending courses
Check me with a flashlight
Give me your hand
Oh just give me your hand
And I move on without a sign from the sky
Never tell me why these people have eyes so centered
Yet all the focus is gone
Billions on the run
What if it became a pattern of fall
And does it matter at all?
We’re given wings then we dive
Husbands and their wives looking for new role models
It’s so easy to hide
Take it to the other side
Take it where it just don’t matter at all
How can it matter at all
So I let go
Leave me float in the air
Did you ever dare
Risking your so called freedom
Your primal shape in disguise
Now we’re on the other side
Now you know it just don’t matter at all
How can it matter at all?
