The Scientist

(Before the Bomb Drops)

I've been looking for the answer
I've been looking for the cure
In search of the truth for everything that's pure
I felt heartache much more than I can endure
I can't carry on like this for the rest
Of the life I have yet to live but yet
I still breathe like there's a reason for breath
I will die here till I have no more left
I will die here but I'll be happy in my rest

The scientist put on his gloves
He dreamt about the moon and the stars above
Some say that day, he went away
He tried an answer but it's too late
He said
I was designed to find out why we are mankind
We live and die and multiply
And someday we all say goodbye
So say goodbye to me
Cuz I'm not who I dreamt I'd be
I was supposed to do great things
I was gonna be a king
But now I know I'm just a man
Finding my way back to the ground again

The world wouldn't listen
They couldn't hear my vision
The world's heart is missing
The answer will be my mission
I've envisioned a bomb created
Half the world will be scared, the other half prepared
For the ultimate demise
The world will drown in our lies till we found our why
Until we all say goodbye

The scientist put on his gloves
He dreamt about the moon and the stars above
Some say that day, he went away
He tried an answer but it's too late
He said
I was designed to find out why we are mankind
We live and die and multiply
And someday we all say goodbye
So say goodbye to me
Cuz I'm not who I dreamt I'd be
I was supposed to do great things
I was gonna be a king
But now I know I'm just a man
Finding my way back to the ground again
If God created the universe
and I can make it fall
I must be as powerful as the one who controls us all
All my life, all I wanted was a call
From an angel
But a devil always stands tall
I stand tall with my demons
But I never let them control me
There's no one in the sky that owns me
There's no song out there that can hold me
The truth is we all get lonely

The scientist put on his gloves
He dreamt about the moon and the stars above
Some say that day, he went away
He tried an answer but it's too late
He said
I was designed to find out why we are mankind
We live and die and multiply
And someday we all say goodbye
So say goodbye to me
Cuz I'm not who I dreamt I'd be
I was supposed to do great things
I was gonna be a king
But now I know I'm just a man
Finding my way back to the ground again

I don't know who I am today
Am I crazy or insane?
Or insane?
I don't know who I am today
Am I crazy or insane?
Or insane?
