All We Are

True is to true
As I am to you.
If fear is pain
Then nothing is new.

We follow along
Gone completely wrong
And all life is
Is the lyrics to song.

Where do I start?
When different is art,
Where everyone lies
To be set apart.

So what does this mean?
It's not what it seems
This is just us:
A dream within dreams
