Lyrics Print

The voices that I hear
Are always telling me to settle right from wrong
But always underneath it all
I'm acting like I knew it all along

That reminds me of a time
When I journeyed through my mind to find peace
But there's a thing about the mind
That makes it hard to understand the words it speaks
It says

Follow hate, don't follow joy
That's fate--let it take course
Don't hesitate to destroy
Don't wait--the time is yours

The people all around
Are always telling me to settle right from wrong
They say they've found a hope
In the love they say just keeps them hanging on

But I don't like that thought
There's a limit to the things I can ignore
And the only prize I've sought
Is a way to make myself walk through this door

Follow hate, don't follow joy
That's fate--let it take course
Don't hesitate to destroy
Don't wait--the time is yours

Answers to your problems aren't supposed to take forever
Deep inside your heart leads a maze to your last endeavor
And here is some guidance to help you on the way
When all your hope is lost look to yourself and say

Follow hate, don't follow joy
That's fate--let it take course
Don't hesitate to destroy
Don't wait--the time is yours
