"When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You're the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying."

I think about the things that have happened.
I remember each individual reaction.
Has all of this caused my soul to be blackened?
My thoughts as I listen to the waves as they're lapping.

The dark of the night surrounds me.
I sit on this beach feeling lonely.
I walk over to the edge of the sea.
My reflection doesn't match the person I used to be.

I lost myself in these past few years.
I allowed myself to be influenced by my peers.
But it wasn't their fault, I ignored the warnings only I could hear.
Funny, looking back on those puzzling times, it all becomes clear.

I look back and see myself, rapidly changing.
The edges of my personality fringing.
To think I almost lost myself completely, I start cringing.
I realize I was so unhappy because of what was missing.

This night is the beginning of a revolution.
I'll change myself, but keep parts too: a fusion.
I push away the thoughts saying happiness is an illusion.
I have to do this, this seemingly impossible excursion.
