Lyrics Edit

[Psychiatrist:]
I know it’s hard to find the words
But tell me all about your world
Do you struggle to adapt?
Do you feel detached?

[Prodigy:]
It seems I’m always out of place
Like some alien machine
I never know how I should be
Or what to feel, or what is real

[Mother:]
Can you help us reach our son?
Can we put our faith in you?
Can you help him overcome?
There is brilliance shining through
Do you see it too?

[Psychiatrist:]
Let’s talk about your dreams
Can you tell me what you see?
Can you describe the way you feel?
Do you feel anything at all…

[Prodigy:]
I see things that don’t belong
In this four-dimensional world
There is so much more beyond
More to unveil, more to reveal

[Mother:]
Can you help us reach our son?
Can we put our faith in you?
Can you help him overcome
There is magic shining through
Can you help us reach our son?

[Prodigy:]
I, I need a future I can build

[Mother:]
Can you tell us what to do?

[Prodigy:]
Give me a role that I can fulfill

[Mother:]
Can we help him rise above?

[Prodigy:]
I know I’ve got something to give

[Mother and Prodigy:]
A reason to live!
