You Are The Answer unofficially premiered on the Buffalo radio station Star 102.5 on July 1, 2022. It was announced that the song would be released late July as the second single off the album Chaos in Bloom. The band had allowed them to play the song only once on air.

Searching for truth can be a fool's game
Some people lie right through their smiles
Don't rip the heart off of your sleeve
And is it wrong to carry on with all you ever knew?
Curtains drawn, you're hanging on
To all you thought was true

You know the answer isn't lost on you
Because I know the answer isn't lost on you

You've got your own fight to choose
And the world might kick you when you're down
They count you out but you refuse
You might lie bleeding on the ground
Close your eyes, realize there's hearts that can't be sewn
Your only crime is being alive
You know you're not alone

You are the answer you've been looking for
You are the answer you've been looking for

Sometimes you know that it ain't easy
On our own from the day we're born
Don't let the bastards steal your soul
‘Cause they don't see your gold (your gold)

The world is crazy again
She said "it's never been sane"
Here we are, you and me
Trying to make the changes
I believe that I can see a better time

Because you are the answer you've been looking for
You are the answer I've been looking for
