Hear me speaking
Asking why I even bother
Tell me how you
Live from day to day

Take your time and look around
Is this utopia you've found?

Sick of all of this
The suffering, and we just carry on
Isn't it time we care and lose the hate
Understand our fears

But we do all that we can
Justify the means to an end

Sorry, you must excuse me
I've painted my own Mona Lisa
She's fixed everything
Now I'm spoiled beyond my wildest dreams

Blind faith we have in you
Invisible
Which direction do we choose
Predictable

Take the streets, the beaten path
Our system works for whom I ask, yeah
I have it all
The bigger house
An iron fence to keep you out

When did we all let you down?
So come Messiah, show us how 
How

Our human spirit drowns
Don't think you hear me now
No sign of you around
What is it you hope to see?

Blind faith we have in you
Invisible
Which direction do we choose
Predictable
Give us something we can use
Desirable
Cause you've done all you can do
Regrettable

And still life pushes on
With or without you
We've got to carry on
Our will will guide us to
A place where we belong
Know there lies the truth
I am the believer who gives purpose unto you

I don't think we let you down
So come Messiah, show us now 
Now

Throw us a pure lifeline
I hope that you hear me
Too proud to be around
There's more to us than we see now

Blind faith we have in you
Invisible
Which direction do we choose
Predictable
Self ignorance, abuse
Desirable
Cause you've done all you can do
Incredible
