Lyrics

1. ACCEPTANCE

I won't fight for a cause that's been lost when we gave up our nature
Denial
Too many faces are glowing with pride and assurance
But it's their loss

Don't you see the skyscrapers?
They're too big to bring down

Awareness of our conditioning is slowly seeping
Leaking
The cracks that we've made in the temple of want do seem useless
But it's their loss

Don't you see the skyscrapers?
They're too big to bring down
Step away, the mind rapers
They will drown in their greed

Stop the want, don't let it fuck with you
Stop the want, don't let it fuck... with... you


2. FINDING MY PLACE

Sometime soon I think I'll find my place
Never fit into the mold I was given
But am I too afraid to find out what I am?
Or is there something in my way that I don't know about?

Sorry if I failed you
I don't know me
I won't know my face
So find me my place

I don't want us to end our lives
In the confines of a cubicle so sterile
But who am I to say
What you consider bliss
I'm just warning you that all the straps will hold you down

Sorry if I failed you
I don't know me
I won't know my face
So find me my place

Can't you see
That I don't share or care for
The dreams you have
The dreams you have for me


3. PUT IT OFF

I put it off
Until it creeped on me
But I was sure... so sure...
That I could bury it to see
It destroyed me
It took my mind and made it hers
The paranoia
Won't let me function
In this world

I fear my mind is playing round
Trying to find some self-control
I fear the fear is gaining ground
I need a vice to channel you, out

It took some time
To know the voice inside
She is a liar
She doesn't give you compliments
I destroyed her
My mind is right now in my hands
Don't listen to her
I know a noise that deafens her out

I fear my mind is playing round
Trying to find some self-control
I fear the fear is gaining ground
I need a vice to channel you, out

So
I can see
The world without these rings
These rings...
Cuz I want to see you
Without these rings underneath my eyes
Cuz I want to see you
Without these rings underneath my eyes

I fear my mind is playing round
Trying to find some self-control
I fear the fear is gaining ground
I need a vice to channel you, out


4. BIG BROTHER

Try to break away from you
But you won't let me go
You impose your point of view
And you won't let me know
You create my solitude
In independance
My fate awaits this somber mood
So justify conformity

I need to break these chains
Change chains
Before I live in vain
Change chains...

Pry the lid open on you
But you manage to lie low
You depose the reign of truth
Claim not to be my foe
You create my emptiness
With false ambitions
It's hard to live alone in this view
So justify conformity

I need to break these chains
Change chains
Before I live in vain
Change chains
I need to break these chains
Change chains
Before I live in vain

Liberate your precious minds from the chains of empty thoughts


5. NEVER THE CULPRIT

We are never the culprits...
We are always the victims...

Blind yourselves with indignations
Feed the mass a vengeful elation
Enjoy the last era you ignorant hate machine
Enjoy the last era you ignorant pride machine
Incite the mass to hate our brothers
Feed the mass a justified murder

We are never the culprits in this world;
we are always the victims who were fooled.

You act as if our hands were spotless
Facts are picked to suit our own causes
Enjoy the last era you pathetic propaganda whore
When will you realize there's nothing worth dying for?
And now you've wasted your existence
To feed the mass a justified murder

We are never the culprits in this world;
we are always the victims who were fooled.

You feel hate to give you purpose
Lost yourself in a larger cause
Step outside your righteous pose
Your beliefs are not the laws

I hope I'm there when there's nothing left to hate...


6. SLIP IN SIN

I feel like something has come to take me away
I feel like something has done away with me
I am your victim
Feels like you're using me as prey
Lights getting dim
Feels like your causing me to pay

Patience, conscience, slowly slip in sin
I can't handle
Living freely in manufactured lies
I can't handle
My face has been molded by defeat
I can't handle
More lies breeding hatred in disguise

Maybe if I cared then you would sense my grief
I'm so washed over that nothing penetrates
Can't cut the strings
Feels like I'm rotting at the core
Stepped out of rhythm
And now it's causing me to pay


7. PRELUDE

(Instrumental)


8. VOID

You're sad cause you found yourself
And the boredom is killing you
You know all the cracks in your wall
They're staring right back at you
In time you will see...

You're not alone in this tonight
I know your void
The boredom is killing you, take flight
Away from your self

Disguise yourself in your masks
You're running away from life
You're balancing on the thin line
You'd better rush back to shore
In time you will see
There's no running...

You're not alone in this tonight
I know your void
The boredom is killing you, take flight
Away from your self

A restless static in your being
Alters everything you're seeing
When all the outlets seem so worn
You shouldn't feel so torn

You're not alone in this tonight
I know your void
The boredom is killing you, take flight
Away from yourself
You're not alone in this tonight
There's more than one
Person inside of you, take flight
Away from yourself...


9. BUILD YOUR CAGES

Build your cages is great for freedom
Believe all your made up sages
Sucked out from your social circle
Is it worth the fifteen minutes?

Sacrifice everything you know you love
The dream entices you to give yourself away
Sacrifice everything you know you love
You miss the things you hated long ago

Embelish your desired state
Do you think it satiates?
Sucked out from your social circle
Is it worth the fifteen minutes?

Dreams are seldom what they seem...
Dreams are seldom what they seem...

Sacrifice everything you know you love
The dream entices you to give yourself away
Sacrifice everything you know you love
You miss the things you hated long ago

Sacrifice everything you know you love
The dream entices you to give yourself away
Sacrifice everything you know you love
You miss the things you hated long ago

Dreams are seldom what they seem...
Dreams are seldom what they seem..


10. TIRED

I'm so sick and tired
Of never being gratified
I'm special when I cut you
I like to see you bleed
I feed off your dejections
It's all I could conceive

I'm so sick and tired of never being
When will my desire ever stop?

I'm so sick and tired of never being gratified
When will my desire ever stop or petrify?
I hate you cuz you chase me
While in front of me
Is there something I could do now
To enjoy this breath

I'm so sick and tired of never being
When will my desire ever stop?
I'm so sick and tired of never feeling
When will I acquire a sense living?


11. INTERLUDE

(Instrumental)


12. LOOK CLOSER

Why do
You judge me?
It's time
To get over yourself.
Morals
Dissipating
Gives me eyes to get a closer look
Oh, I'll get a closer look
Why do you judge me this way?
I don't know?
I don't know?
I've made mistakes more than once, more than once
My views, mismatch me, about time to get over myself
So much
Retribution
Gives me eyes, to get a closer look
Oh, I'll get a closer look
Why do you judge me this way?
I don't know?
I don't know?
I've made mistakes more than once
I'm only human
I can't offer you, perfection
I can offer you a closer look into my view
I gave in one to many times
I rectify myself with guilt
But it's overwhelming me
Why do you judge me this way?
I don't know?
I don't know?
I've made mistakes more than once
I'm only human
I can't offer you perfection
I can offer you a closer look into my view
Into my view
Into my view


13. GLASS DOOR

Suspended in nothing too dramatic
Leads me wanting dissonance
My fulfillment is often sporadic
Trying to lift my resonance

Nothing is yours
Nothing is mine
Nothing is yours
Nothing is yours!

Nothing is yours
don't get so caught up with all that owing that stores
All your vibes inside this glass door

Depression sets in like a neighbour unwanted
But you can't refuse cuz it's not your house
Once you stop buying discover the honted
Void that you fill with material malice

Nothing is yours
Nothing is mine
Nothing is mine
Nothing is yours!

Nothing's set in stone for the fearful
Nothing's set in stone for the fearful
Nothing's set
Your life is rented
So burn all the shit !!
You own !!


14. DESPOT

Waking in this state
The world seems strange to me
How can something so beautiful
Shine on something so dreadful
Realized this too late...

You sell them short for what they are
One day they'll show you who they are
Leave it to us to tape our mouths
The silence will add more to release
Cuz talking has become a taboo
If only they knew the power that they had
I wake up and find myself unstable
I'm hoping that this world is just a fable

How can something so beautiful
Shine on something so dreadful

The hunger necessitates the slaves
To fasten and redirect their waves
One day the silence will be torn
Despoil these social straps we've worn
I wake up and find myself unstable
I'm hoping that this world is just a fable

If only they knew the power that they had
You sell them short
You sell them short

Realized this too late to fight it
Realized it's too late to fight it
Realized it's too late...
