A Rare Case of Understanding

I’ve found myself wondering
Like I always seem to do
Contemplating complex notions
But I’m baffled
I’m confused

What does it take for me
What will it take to see
To see the human in you
What do I gotta do
To get from you
To get just a little
A little bit of understanding
A break from this demanding
Circus of humanity

I’m wavering, stumbling
Like I always seem to do
Staggering through sideways motions
Cause I’m ravaged
Overused
Ravaged shaken and abused

What does it take for us
How long before we gain your trust
How long before we see
Before you reveal
Reveal the human in you
What do we gotta do
To see just a little
A little life in those eyes
The bleakest truth in those lies
In this circus of fools
Circus of humanity

Again, I find myself wondering
Like I always seem to do
Contemplating complex notions
Always baffled
So confused

Could I, maybe, catch a glimpse
A distant view, a fleeting sight
Before we go, may we please see
Around this dog and pony show
Just one case of understanding
A glimmer of humanity
