Enclosed In A Bubble And Knows


Does it really make any sense today,
To do things at one's best.
And...
Does it really make any sense today,
To do anything effective...
With a hope that it connects.

Does it really make any sense today,
To do things at one's best.
And...
Does it really make any sense today,
To do anything effective...
With a hope that it connects.

Who is left unaffected,
By confusion and unrest.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
By a disrespect they get.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
By conflicts that exist.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
Yet remains in the midst of it.

Does it really make any sense today,
To do things at one's best.
And...
Does it really make any sense today,
To do anything effective...
With a hope that it connects.

Who is left unaffected,
By confusion and unrest.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
By a disrespect they get.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
By conflicts that exist.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
Yet remains in the midst of it.

Who is left unaffected.
And yet remains connected.
Who...
Is enclosed in a bubble and knows?

Who is left unaffected,
By conflicts that exist.
Who...
Is enclosed in a bubble and knows?

Who is left unaffected,
By a disrespect they get.
Who...
Is enclosed in a bubble and knows?

Who is left unaffected,
By confusion and unrest.
And...
Who is left unaffected,
Yet remains in the midst of it.
Just who...
Is enclosed in a bubble and knows?
Who...
Is enclosed in a bubble and knows?
