Sins of Idealism

After Forever

Child: Hello father, hello mother
There is so much I don't get
Please don't be mad at me
I will try harder
I'll really do the best I can

Mother: That's not enough
You're the cause of my domestic captivity

Child: And I will close my eyes
And fantasize of a world that's not so cold

Mother: That's how it will be, suffer the causes
Of my personal misery. I've sacrificed
My beauty, my freedom, my dreams
The independent me

Child: Hello father, hello mother
Don't blame me for things I didn't do
Yes, I will go now, and I'll be silent
Please stop your screaming, and love me!

Mother: That's all you can see
Speak of love while you've ruined
What's meant to be

Child: And then I'll close my eyes
To fantasize of a world
Where I can be free
And free to be

Contemplative:
Sinner or righteous, the line is so thin
Can you condemn it?
Can you be the one to judge it all, or accuse
Yourself if the sentence is your life

Child: Hello father, hello mother
Forgive me for standing in your way
I just wanted someone
Who'd hold me and listen
Are these illusions, are they

Mother: Only fantasies?
Imagine how my life would have been
I would still have
My beauty, my freedom, my dreams
The independent me

Contemplative:
Our course in life is a path we must take
Alone no one can choose what to do, only you
So the sins we commit are the struggles within
There's no judge to decide what is right what is wrong

Tell me, can you live in freedom
Knowing that your choice hurt someone?

Father: Once, we had a life and now we have you
The saviour of love is a catastrophe
I'll leave you both
If I must give up my dreams
My chances aren't here with you
I won't be chained because of this

The sins of all, the sinner in me
I follow my dreams, you call it blasphemy
If my ideals are sins
To me, they are the strength within
Then I shall stay a sinner!

Child: I can be free, and free to be

Contemplative:
Sinner or righteous, the line is so thin
Can you condemn it?
Can you be the one to judge it all
Or accuse yourself, if the sentence is your life
