Rear view, coated in concrete Invite the weather, test the foundation When we are water logged, then will we know how strong we are? Make no mistake this time, there's no abandonment in me Want this mystery to be What you need to help you see While they're taking you from me I need to let it be Recourse, relentless infection Can spread the sickness, can't crack the foundation Who are all of you, why do you insist on coming back? Want you to know this time: you'll find no abandonment in me Want this mystery to be What you need to help you see While they're taking you from me How can I let it be I want to but I can't see They're invisible to me I need to let it be But how can I let it... Want this mystery to be What you need to help you see While they're taking you from me I need to let it be Let it be

When will we see ourselves for what we cannot be? Open, I see what's wrong, need a shield from the light The place where we should be is behind my closed eye We can't try Don't pass my closed eye Can we just stay asleep and live inside the dream? We'll have all we could want until the open eye We can't try Don't pass my closed eye Can we just stay asleep and just live in the dream? Have all we could want

A transition from ambition Re-examine feast or famine, this condition Of what could be or what should be Why exactly do I keep on dreaming Even when my time is up? Cause I don’t know any other way And I’ll never take an opportunity To get out Find elation in this vacation Satisfaction that transcends interpretation Search for something, provided nothing Why exactly do we keep insisting Even when the clock’s run out? Cause I don’t know any other way And I’ll never take an opportunity To get out I never said I knew the way What’s forward progress anyway? I’ll stay in this consistency If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right No illusion in this collusion Almost accidental, found this coalition Explore in prattle, an uphill battle Don’t wear a watch, don’t need the time And if I find a clock I’ll turn it back Cause I don’t know any other way And I’ll never take an opportunity To get out I never said I knew the way What’s forward progress anyway? I’ll stay in this consistency If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right In the meantime We’ll just rewind Fuck forward progress anyway I never said I knew the way What’s forward progress anyway? I’ll stay in this consistency If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right A transition from ambition Re-examine feast or famine, this condition Search for something, provided nothing Don’t wear a watch, don’t need the time If we get it wrong, well we’ll get it right

We're better off in here without you There's no reason for you to be here Self-righteous, full of shit Worth none of what you think You aren't fooling anybody You gotta feel control to slow your own demise Cause you have no respect for another one's life It's just a power trip fueled by your colorless lies Now you extend your hand cause you wanna shake mine? Fuck you and I'll see you on the other side What did you think would come of all of this? You think your wisdom would get us out of this? So you've got it figured out? Words from the coward tongue But you'll let everybody take the fall You gotta feel control to slow your own demise Cause you have no respect for another one's life It's just a power trip fueled by your colorless lies Now you extend your hand cause you wanna shake mine? Fuck you and I'll see you on the other side What did you think we would do for you? What am I supposed to think of you? What are we to do with all of this? What now? We are done with this. You are a burden to us all. You know it's just a matter of time now Before exposure sheds a light on you There's no one left to fool So play it by yourself Blame's on the telephone and it's for you You gotta feel control to slow your own demise Cause you have no respect for another one's life It's just a power trip fueled by your colorless lies Now you extend your hand cause you wanna shake mine? Fuck you and I'll see you on the other side

Do you know the way To make it all worthwhile Or make it go away When nothing makes you smile anymore I guess we all have a point to break Thought I knew the way To turn back the trend To reverse the decline Turns out I don't know much anymore I guess we all have a line to cross I wanna make it all worthwhile When you’re all out of pride Am I tired Am I broken Am I angry at the sky for who's been chosen Am I wrong Am I guilty And I never wanted you to find this threshold Line I guess we all have a point to break I guess we all have a line to cross

A warning has been placed on you A wasted life is not true You’re vacant and gone through A past phase A face turned blue Who can’t say “I’ve got you”? You’re vacant......vacant Who can’t say “I’ve got you”? Let us see, inside you Vacate the lies, its not true Love will stay, here for you While we rot away, not afraid A new day awaits your pain Without it, you feel the same Just fake it, they’ll stay away The same day just slips on through The decades wear on you It’s breaking just stay away Who can’t say “I’ve got you”? Let us see, inside you Vacate the lies, its not true Love will stay, here for you While we rot away, not afraid A warning has been placed on you A wasted life is not true You’re vacant and gone through A past phase A face turned blue Who can’t say “I’ve got you”? You’re vacant and gone through

Let’s pretend our agenda fits this mold so well There’s black and there’s white, and grey where we say it is Cause there’s only room for us in morality After all, ignorance is bliss, interpret and legislate life Hard to see past this self-serving shadow And we hear and say And we’ve lost our way And we’ve let it all permeate our skin and bones Exist in a vice, sleeping on cold, hard stone And all we pray for is vindication After all, ignorance is bliss, interpret and contradict life Can’t see past this self-serving shadow And we hear and say And we’ve lost our way Ask and answer, it’s too late. There’s no going back now. You’ve decided. It’s too late. We’re falling apart now. We’re falling apart now. We’ve chosen this way now. There’s no going back now. And we hear and say And we’ve lost our way We’re not where we started from Everything’s different Everything’s different Nothing’s exactly the same We’ve thought it all through, haven’t we? It’s all for the better, isn’t it? Legislate life. There’s black and there’s white. There’s wrong and there’s right. But always is grey where we say. We’re falling apart now. We’re falling apart now.
