Lost in the New Real (Lucassen Arjen Anthony)

Drifting in a world i don’t belong I miss her, how can i face this life alone? I do remember Like it was yesterday You and me together Back in a different age Reaching for the ghosts haunting my mind Dreaming of the ones i left behind Hopeless… there is nothing i can do Knowing i can never be with you again Why did you bring me back? Like a lab rat in a maze Am i dead or alive? With all these wires stuck in my brain Why did you wake me up? Locked in this virtual jail Why was i revived? Is this all some game? Lost in this maze Locked in this brain So this is the end… Why did you bring me back? Like a lab rat in a maze Or maybe a start Am i dead or alive? With all these wires tuck in my brain So what happens now… Why did you wake me up? Locked in this virual jail Can’t find a way out… Why was i revived? Is this all some game? I could decide to stay here And dream on forevermore To live without the danger And the fear i felt before A life devoid of sadness. No more suffering and pain In a realm of make-believe Within the limts of my brain But can i really fool myself (could i thrive inside this lucid dream?) Into believing i’m still me (in this mind-machine technology) A synthetic state of consciousness (could i be a part of this new real?) I am therefore i think Could i dream forevermore Without the fear i felt before There’ll be no suffering and pain Within the confines of my brain I remember dying Fading into black I remember dreaming Of a second chance The new real – a paradise? Inviting – exciting – a new home The new real – a web of lies? Confusion – delusion – i am alone The new real – a golden dream? Serenity – my destiny – a new home The new real – a cold machine? Mistaken – forsaken – i am alone Please switch me off I am sure now I don’t belong In this new real Please shut me down I am fine now Thanks for the dream You can switch me off Now i know this is not real I can’t trust the way i feel I’m alive… but in a dream Am i only… a machine?
