I am a human being
And I don't believe all the things I'm seeing
I got nowhere to hide anymore

And I don't know how to lie anymore
I'm boozing to pray

I'm on a track and I'm travelling so fast. Oh, for sure I'm crazy

But I was never under your eye
Gather up your love in some wiseness
For every memory shall always survive
