lyrics

I don’t know which is better
to be alive or to be well
Even the fat man selling the
weather is selling an illusion
to fulfill

Every day’s another battle
every life’s another war
Instead of searching for
the answers we’re just
trying to keep score

We are all victims of our
own minds torment
cowering in the
Wilderness of War

Youth gives us a naive mind to judge
what is wrong and what is right
'Cause as the years they pass
quicker I see more in grays
than blacks and whites

Life feels like a river
it’s hard to grasp cause we’re just along for the ride
There’s some illusion of control in the shallows
but you’re always moving with the tide

We are all victims of our
own minds torment
cowering in the
Wilderness of War

But what if there’s nothing to fear?
what if it’s all just the transitory blues?
Either way we’re still just
mice pushing someone else’s wheel
lost in an illusion unable to feel

We are all victims of our
own minds torment
cowering in the….
Wilderness of War
