Stolen and Misshapen

What's the word for "letting go" in the native language
This and all my unsaid thoughts are seeking refuge somewhere else
I'm not here for long
And I am nothing but a man passing for a lover
Looking for another lie to let fall upon my lips
What I'd give for this

We're searching for a home
Found in the hearts unknown

And all that I presume to know was stolen and misshapen
History has lost the thread by which life can trace its birth
God was made through men
But brilliance stands to die alone when no one cares to listen
Visions of a brighter world are ever darkened by the dread
Of turning from the mirror

We're searching for a home
Found in the hearts unknown
