lyrics

As this conversation starts
The end is already in sight,
This subtle deception is an art,
In which we maintain the black and white

A system
In which we’re all made to fit
Lying to ourselves

To keep things comfortable (Resist the weak)
What will it break? What will it break? My will or these walls?
I want a way out (Follow the strong)
I will leave this prison and all that it represents

Flooding thoughts, swirling emotions
I can feel my rage, as I swim against the current

We all seem to value the wrong things
Choosing sterility over stability
I’d rather burn this all to the ground
Than keep up this goddamn charade

Look back one last time (Resist the weak)
What will it break? What will it break? My will or these walls?
This is my way out (Follow the strong)
I will leave this prison and all that it represents

These moments are what make our souls
We are the products of our principles
How will you live your life? It’s all up to you

Endless hope balanced by a matching fear
I know I won’t go back
But I will say one thing:

Shallow men deserve a shallow grave
