[Verse 1]
Our ancestors had to fight to survive
Just so we could have a chance of a life
We’re not here so we can blow it all
We could bear witness to the rise and the fall

[Pre-Chorus]
Ancient dreams in a modern land
I’m trying to get back as fast I can
Back to a time before I had form
Back to a time before I was born

[Chorus]
You don’t have to be like everybody else
You don’t have to fit into the norm
You are not here to conform
I am here to take a look insidе myself
Recognize that I could bе the eye, the eye of the storm

[Post-Chorus]
I am not my body, not my mind or my brain (Ha!)
Not my thoughts or feelings, I am not my DNA
I am the observer, I’m a witness of life
I live in the space between the stars and the sky

[Verse 2]
What’s your purpose, why were you put on Earth?
You could be lost but you belong to the world
We’re now living in a seminal age
The walls are being broken and we’re ready for change

[Pre-Chorus]
Ancient dreams in a modern land
I’m trying to get back as fast I can
Back to a time before I had form
Back to a time before I was born

[Chorus]
You don’t have to be like everybody else
You don’t have to fit into the norm
You are not here to conform
I am here to take a look inside myself
Recognize that I could be the eye, the eye of the storm

[Post-Chorus]
I am not my body, not my mind or my brain (Ha!)
Not my thoughts or feelings, I am not my DNA
I am the observer, I’m a witness of life
I live in the space between the stars and the sky

[Bridge]
From the heart of Malaysia
To the dark Himalayas
From the day you were born
You are not here to conform

[Chorus]
You don’t have to be like everybody else
You don’t have to fit into the norm
You are not here to conform
I am here to take a look inside myself
Recognize that I could be the eye, the eye of the storm

[Post-Chorus]
I am not my body, not my mind or my brain (Ha!)
Not my thoughts or feelings, I am not my DNA
I am the observer, I’m a witness of life
I live in the space between the stars and the sky
