Lyrics

Gotta get off
Gonna get
Have to get off
From this ride

Gotta get hold
Gonna get
Need to get hold
Of my pride

When did I get
Where did I
How was I caught
In this game?

When will I know
Where will I
How will I think
Of my name?

When did I stop feeling sure
Feeling safe
And start wondering why
Wonder why
Is this a dream
Am I here
Where are you
What’s in back of the sky
Why do we cry?

Gotta get off
Gonna get
Out of this
Merry-go-round

Gotta get on
Gonna get
Need to get on
Where I’m bound

When did I get
Where did I
Why am I lost
As a lamb

When will I know
Where will I
How will I learn
Who I am

Is this a dream
Am I here
Where are you
Tell me

When will I know
How will I know
When will I know
Why?
