Less Dangerous

I want to cry but there's no more tears
I want to be afraid but there's nothing to fear
I want to survive but I'm not even alive
I want to cook but I'm already fried
just going through the motions
like waves in the ocean
there's got to be more for us.
Out there.

It's got to be more than just a game to us
It's got to be something less dangerous
To be happy do we have to pretend
that we have the means to make an end?

I want to run but my breath is getting short
I want to be silent but they need a full report
I want to sleep but I'm so wide awake
I want to be perfect but that's probably a mistake

I want to kiss but I have no lips
I want to shake it but I have no hips
I want to dance like I have no care
I want to just be. Just be there.

This has to be more than just a game to us
There's got to be something less dangerous
Is anyone happy and if so for how long?
Is everbody weak or is somebody strong?
Another day after day after another day
Has to be a better way.

I want to live. I want to be free.
I want to see all there is to see.
I want to be with you and have you always with me.
I don't want to succeed - I just want to be.
I just want to be.
Me.

This has to be more than just a game for us
There has to be a world less dangerous.
Life is a circle without any end.
We somehow have to embrace that and make it our friend.
