"We Are Alone"

There's something missing in every life
It's an intangible and yet it somehow keeps us up at night
While we struggle with this yearning
And a mocking world just keeps turning around and around

And it's so elusive - it slips through our fingers
Just beyond our reaching hands is where we think the answer lingers
And taunts us as we try to figure it out
What's the secret of life before we die

I don't believe that there's anyone out there
Who's watching over everything that we do
No I don't believe that we will find divine answers
There's just me and you

There's pain and suffering in every life
And there are so many questions about what's truly wrong and right
And we sit here in our collective ignorance
And we make judgments that have no real significance to the rest of the world

I don't believe that we'll face damnation
Even living in this evil world that we do
But I don't believe that we'll find salvation
There's just me and you

My conscience begs me almost every night
To seek truth and kindness in every life
But I'm exhausted although I still try to figure it out
What's the secret of life before I die

I don't believe that there's anyone out there
Who's watching over everything that we do
No I don't believe that we will find divine answers
There's just me and you

And that's the secret of life
The only real secret is we are alone
