Let no one be themselves
Turn of the century lies
Not within the others, turn on the watchful eye
The blindness ends tonight
Shelter for the shattered, in unison we strive
Dare to disassociate and cut the binds that tie
Abstractualize further to the ends of facts and foe
Will it out of meaning as silence speaks the truth

I want to hear you scream, I want to see you

Stand atop the pantheon of fiction and your failure
Grasping for a hiding place among indifferent stones
A brief reflection, it sets the soul apart
No selection, it tears our world apart

These walls are protecting us, burn them to the ground
This haven of refuge, burn it to the ground

So smudge the lens a little, muffle the voice
Phase out of sound a while and let it go
Citizens of choice in a twilight world of your design
Left to our devices we stumble on

Burn it to the ground
No firewall will save you
Burn it to the ground

Take me to the keep and bare the darkest void
Thousandfold the agony of silenced screams alone
Tune right out of static
Exorcise the dark
How else can we move on
