Is this all real?
What is this sensation we feel?
Are we just reliving the life we once lived?
Did we die already and just get revived?

Who once decided what's left and right?
Who sees everything in black or white?
Is this whole world just a dream?
Is this all part of some scheme?

The answers to the questions were not written in ink
It always changes no matter how much you think
Because you're neither right nor wrong
People have been searching for answers for so long

Laws and rules,
Are just some of our tools
Tools to make this world seem more vast
If they are not believed in then they are just the past

Do we have some weird ideal?
Are we nothing yet real?
An answer is that ''we are'' therefore we exist
But that doesn't always mean we can coexist

Searching for answers can lead us to depression
But when we find the answer, do we remember what is the question?

Nice work!

I often wonder myself - I love 'Matrix', 'The Truman show' 'Brazil' and 'What dreams may come' I suppose due to a fascination with some of these ideas, which are also an important theme in buddhism.

Well done :D

That's up to you ;p - it felt appropriate at the time... many of the ideas / thoughts are interesting, I can connect with and don't think I'm the only one - some have been around for a long time...

Question: Should 'found' in the last line be 'find'?

Very nice, I can completely identify with these words. I've written very similar things, and thought about them much more =D. I'm currently writing a song that is discussing duality, so your verses:

Who once decided what's left and right?
Who sees everything in black or white?
Is this whole world just a dream?
Is this all part of some scheme?

Remind me very much of it. Great job anyways

Isn't it, "Because you're neither right nor wrong"? And the line, "Searching for answers can lead is to depression" doesn't make sense to me...
Other than that, it's great! :)

The first sentence could be both things if I'm not mistaken
The second sentence was a typo that is now changed

"Searching for answers can lead is to depression" ...hmmm, it most likely means how sometimes, we are better off not knowing the truth/answer to certain things. When we do know the answer to something you don't want, it may cause some upsetting, stressing, and depressing emotions :D

Hey, not be rude, but why not just shut your annoying little face and go back to minding your own business? This person is a very good writer, as are many others out there. Don't waste keystrokes and energy trying to make people 'see it your way'. You don't need to spam people's inboxes with your griping and whining about other people being nice. You're probably a great writer, and hey, there's a lot of great writers out there and their works don't have many favs or views, but most are greatful for the people who do take their time to comment or fav.
