Lyrics
People say to see is to believe
Then they just believe in that they can perceive
What they see is not the total view
Filtered between the me and you
Ah, but I'm trying so hard
Just to tell you I care
And I've wanted so long, to tear this all away
Tear it all away

People say well you just had to be there
And all the time you know they've never been there
And it makes me sad to sit and think
Of all those empty souls nearly at the brink
Ah, but I'm trying so hard
Just to keep to myself
The things that I hope will tear it all away
Tear it all away

People grow up and learn to drive some car
But I did that and it doesn't get you far
The things you want are never to be found
And in the end it's all some running round
Ah, but I'm trying so hard
Just to open my eyes
To seeing some things that tear it all away
Tear it all away

I thought you would know
I thought you would know
People say they think that they are sure
But they turn away and don't go back no more
What they saw was not a perfect sight
Just their own face reflected in the night
Ah, but I'm trying so hard
Just to tell you it's now
And I'm gonna keep on trying
To tear it all away
