lyrics

Who can say, why do such things happen as they do?
There must be some kind of scientific proof
That I can hold onto
When I am falling through
See when I was young it seemed all easy in control
But as I age, it’s far beyond my hand
Will not follow my commands
I’m a house upon the sand
And my soul yearns to understand

Everybody is a life in motion
The plans are hid beneath the surface of your life
You may not understand
This may not be your plan
But no one ever escapes the forces of the world

So are you caught, your heart still looking to the past
Or is your mind racing off ahead?
Like a mouth that must be fed
Just a little bit more of bread
While your life, craving to be lived...

Everybody is a life in motion
The plans are hid beneath the surface of your life
You may not understand
This may not be your plan
But no one ever escapes the forces of the world
But everybody must contend with these forces
Connecting all of us to everything in sight
And you may have a choice
You may have a voice
But no one ever escapes the forces of the world

Momentum is pulling me, momentum I cannot see
Its overhead, underneath and I try to swim upstream

Everybody is a life in motion
The plans are hid beneath the circus of your life
You may not understand
This never was my plan
But everybody must contend with these forces
Connecting all of us to everyone in sight
And you may have a choice
You may have a voice
But no one ever escapes
No, no one ever escapes the forces of the world.
