I know you don’t know the cost of cold
But the price is fixed or so I’m told
It’s all just a game of shades
Keep it in the dark or it will fade

Like the truth
Like the truth
Like the truth that lies in yourself

And I know it costs more than I can see
And you think that the truth will set us free
But I find it’s not so easy to find

When you’re searching
When you’re searching
When you’re searching for the light in yourself

And I know that I don’t know the half of it
And all the hope that we’re sold is just counterfeit
Bend backwards not to forfeit your time,

When you trade in
When you’re trading
When you’re trading your days for Lauriers
