As we sit in awkward silence, the tension in the air -
The thoughts of hate and violence, the victims unaware.
There’s a million miles between them - what is thought and what is said. It’s the obstacles we build when we live in our own heads.
History holds lessons, but some we never learn.
We build the walls around us, as slowly bridges burn. But there lies a clear solution to the mental ties that bind. Control the mind pollution - don’t let it control your mind.

There are many things that make us different; and different things that make us sick. All our conflicts of interest - and our interest in conflict. Are we ten billion strangers? Are we one family? If we could look inside each other’s minds we could help each other see.

[Chorus:] It’s just an obstacle illusion - that we alone create. But we always end up losin’ when we choose to separate. It’s just an obstacle illusion. We build them in our minds. There are no foregone conclusions not to worry, there’s still time.
[Bridge:]

With the evening sun we mellow, and with the morning sun we rise. We face the darkest hour with a light that burns inside. Yes, there lies a clear solution to the mental ties that bind. Control the mind pollution before it controls your mind.

There are many things that make us suffer - these are things that make us great. We could reach out for each other, or we could sit back and wait. Are we ten billion strangers? Are we one family? If we could look inside each other’s minds we could help each other see.
[Chorus:]
