Cast your eyes into the distance
Find a spirit of resistance
Forge some opposition
It ain't the prettiest position

Faces made of wax
Sheets of butchered facts
Hooded hearts and jeweled hands
As a century ends
Everything I seen,
Ain't even the tip of the iceberg
So pass me my rose tinted glasses again
Through a fog of contradiction
See society admiring its own reflection
Careful what you say 'cause reality offends
As a century ends
And it's easy to get weary
'Gainst a popular theory
'Fore it's even begun
Tend a wound that never mends
As a century ends
