Verse 1

Look around you, innocents are dead.

Children have guns pointed at their heads.

Some can't afford just a slice of bread.

Religious wars have us oozing red.

Verse 2

Triggers are pulled for cash every day,

Organs just ripped out and sold away.

Love has turned into a game they play,

And I watch in horror and dismay.

Chorus

Even if I look through telescopes,

How will I ever find my lost hope?

When the veil covering my eyes has lifted,

And the mist called happiness has cleared.

To a remote island my faith has drifted,

And I've been stranded alone right here.

Verse 3

Look around you, some are selling skin,

Others repentance for so called sins.

Don't know where right ends and wrong begins,

What's the point of this? What will they win?

Verse 4

Lies have now become the only truth,

They all want to be the absolute,

Turn a blind eye to the destitute,

And I'm falling without parachute.

Chorus

Even if I look through telescopes,

How will I ever find my lost hope?

When the veil covering my eyes has lifted,

And the mist called happiness has cleared.

To a remote island my faith has drifted,

And I've been stranded alone right here.

Bridge

Optimism is for the happy and the weak.

"Things will get better" is just a trick

To console yourself when your world falls apart,

But these fruitless words no longer touch my heart.

Chorus

Even if I look through telescopes,

How will I ever find my lost hope?

When the veil covering my eyes has lifted,

And the mist called happiness has cleared.

To a remote island my faith has drifted,

And I've been stranded alone right here.
