"The teacher has become the prodigy's closest friend
And the only person the prodigy trust
He is glad to see the prodigy's progress
But can't help wondering if something unhealthy
Might be behind it. Regardless
He is determined to help the prodigy
Who is having trouble finding his bearings
In the strange new world that the drug is revealing to him."

I don?t mean to interfere, but I see quite a change in you
The distant gaze has disappeared
The brilliant light behind your eyes is shining through

You?re right, it?s strange
It all seems different now
The mist has cleared, I?m finally awake
But it?s hard to change
I want to live but I don?t know how
I need someone to help me find my way

You can count on me
I?m glad to have such a mind to teach
Life doesn?t have to be a mystery
You can live my dream
And scale the heights I could never reach
We can play a part changing history
Our time is here!

I have to say, it?s unusual
Such a transformation, overnight!
I wouldn?t have thought it was possible
I don?t want to scare you, but it can?t be right!
Well I don?t mind, cause I feel so much stronger now
For the first time the world is making sense
I?ll be your guide
It?s time to live and I?ll show you how
A world of endless wonder lies ahead!
