Lyrics

EVERYMAN

Look deep into my eyes
And you’ll see enough sorrow
To fill yesterday and today
And stretch into tomorrow.

Listen to my cries
And you’ll hear enough pain
To reach into forever
And echo back again.

Breathe the air around me
And you’ll smell enough fear
To reach the rising sun
And burn its way back here.

How can I make you understand it?
I am Everyman on this planet.
Self-inflicted wounds upon ancient scars;
Suffering real and imagined horrors.
How can I make you understand it?
I am Everyman on this planet.

Breathe the air around me
And you’ll smell enough fear
To reach the rising sun
And burn its way back here.

Touch my fragile frame
And you’ll feel enough tension
To tie up every thought
With taut apprehension.

Kiss me on my cold cheek
And you’ll taste enough decay
To think we’re just a moment
From facing Judgment Day.

How can I make you understand it?
I am Everyman on this planet.
Self-inflicted wounds upon ancient scars;
Suffering real and imagined horrors.
How can I make you understand it?
I am Everyman on this planet.

How can we ever understand it?
We are Everyman on this planet.
Whirling and whirling around;
Watching the Doomsday Clock wind down.

How can we ever understand it?
We are Everyman on this planet.
Desperately clutching the ground;
Whirling as the Doomsday Clock winds down.

How can we ever understand it?
Is it all just the way God planned it?
How can we ever understand it?
We are Everyman on this planet.

How can we ever understand it?
We are Everyman on this planet.

Can’t be this way everywhere, can it?
