My take on Plato's famous allegory ...

(Or what Satan would call The Matrix!)

lyrics

Allegory Of The Cave
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©1996 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Verse 1):
There’s a fire outside the cave
Throwing shadows on the wall
Sensations ride in on a wave
With implications for us all

(Bridge):
But my eyes don’t see what’s in front of me
To the real world, I’m blind
The light - the dark - the energy
They can be anything in my mind

(Chorus 1):
We are deluded
We never know
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up as we go.

(Verse 2):
There’s a madness in the cave
And it overcomes us all
This illusion’s all we save
To paint perceptions on the wall

(Bridge):
But my eyes don’t see what’s in front of me
To the real world, I’m blind
The light - the dark - the energy
They can be anything in my mind

(Chorus 2)
We are deluded
We never know
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up as we go. …
… We never know
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up …
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up as we go.
We’re makin’ it up as we go …
