Lyrics


Down through the ages with same structures and thoughts
Living and feeling with same troubles can keep on
How to escape from the jungle we build
How to remain that's a dream fulfilled

 


Shy people, lone survivors in the natural dream
Shy people, fearful creatures outside are insane
You will never be part of our lives
You will never be part of our lives
Shy people dream through their lives

 


Time, that reflecting ray light, a beam through the night
Those minions of dreams not a weak lets them by
My fathers behavior was ruining the land
Sun breathes out of wide eyes people understand

 


Shy people, lone survivors in the natural dream
Shy people, fearful creatures outside are insane
You will never be part of our lives
You will never be part of our lives
You will never, you will never
See through their eyes
