The Voice Beneath The Man

from by Makeshift Lullaby

lyrics

We wish only for the best,
yet spend all our time settling for less.
We waste our lives making these endless requests,
but in the end, do we ever benefit?
We watch our lives pass us by,
a lifetime gone in the blink of an eye,
and we make our lists of things to do before we die,
but in the end, we're only as good as the ride.

Well, I want you all to know
that I'm doing the best I can.
When this is all over,
I hope I can understand,
the voice beneath the man.

We lay our worries to rest
when we're sure we've passed all of life's little tests,
but no matter how much material we possess,
in the end, the pain will always manifest.

Well, I want you all to know
that I'm doing the best I can.
When this is all over,
I hope I can understand,
the voice beneath the man.
