Look

Look at yourself, what do you see?
If you look from inside, there’s nothing to flee
You might see your soul,
No-one else can read your real role.

Look at yourself, what do you see?
Others aren’t sure what to make of you
But they give you a view that suits them too
And act like everything is true;
They think you’re theirs to mould and fold;
Bend if you don’t;
They’re just too soft and nice to scold or withhold…

There’s a price to be truly free
That’s what they don’t realize about you and me;
You have to hit rock bottom to clearly see
What is surface and what is sea,
Just what it takes for one to break free.

So don’t look at yourself,
Try looking at them,
Try looking at me
And if doesn’t add up
Then there’s no need to flee,
Life’s oldest equation has scared far stronger than thee.

So, here’s looking at you,
But through your eyes only
Not through theirs…
That will only cause unconscious tears.

Look at yourself through your eyes only
And enjoy the view
From Life’s living room,
It doesn’t need to be all gloom and doom.
