don’t know

but i don’t know,
i really don’t know

until

the world starts
to open and my eyes

start to see.

and you don’t know
even when i tell you,

you don’t believe.

the world can’t lie,
and we can’t hide.

but we don’t know,
we really don’t know

until

the world starts to tell
and we see the difference

between the circumstance
and the consequence.
