20/20 vision – simple man lyrics

[verse 1]
theory into practice
life through the prism of a gl-ss full of blackness
looking up like, “really, this was made for us?”
the ones made of dust, sharpen swords or watch our blades rust
new thing is a man of steel
could fly away from earth, the reality’s too real
so how you feel? overwhelmed?
bottle it up or trust the water from the well
no need to hit the rock floor
door to door, we seem to focus on the locks more
really everybody’s got a key
lost ’em in the rush of the routine, forgot to stop or breathe
and n-body’s got a monopoly
on the foundation, sustainer of the creations
a million miles away from my intended destination
i can get off here or i can change the gear

[chorus]
i hear the message so clear i can’t blame my ears
i hear the message so clear i can’t blame my ears
i see the mission, oh, i see the mission
can’t blame it on my 20/20 vision

[verse 2]
fear of tomorrow keeps the sorrow afloat
if the waves pull me down, can i borrow your boat?
because i’m not a strong swimmer, never have been
and the water’s inhabited by a dragon
surfaces every week or two and knocks on my skull like, “sorry sir, but can i speak to you?
i’d really love to feature you in my new study of sadness, it’s untreatable”
used to be inclined to say yes
walking all over my soul like it was made by payless, but
not no more
no, this is made in g-d’s own store, so keep on moving, buddy
i don’t got no time for the rhymes and the foreboding designs in the corners of my mind, n-n-no
i don’t got no time for the rhymes and the foreboding designs in the corners of my mind

[chorus]
