Lyrics

Long live slavery
Just like the millions of us
I've been looking for a way out
I still need to justify the anger
That gives me reasons to not sleep at night
A reason to enjoy the silence when all them souls are home
Not aware of the relieving privilege of not singing such songs
Our chains are made of abandons
Locked up with rents and some fashions
I try to think though it ain't worth shit in this world
And the way that I feel is just nothing I'm sure of
I only fear the mornings when doubts refuse to call
And if I give myself up into some lazy days
It's to escape from depression
I guess we're all the same
Oh excuses, how I hate you
Oh excuses, I created excuses for you
And I'm sinking with you at the end
Wrong kids of the fate
We dream of safe shelters we would create
And this curse is a marathon we endure day after day
For passion and for love
No surrender
I keep trusting the kid I once was
And the way that I feel is just nothing I'm sure of
But there's still a reason why I refuse to fall

For passion - no surrender
For passion - no surrender

Chains can't hold the fire
And acceptance kills the men
And if courage is a weakness in a world of clones
I guess our stories become nothing but romantic jokes
I call it acceptance
When you don't play your cards
I call it acceptance
When you don't live your heart
We've only been taught how to say goodbye and thousand times
Told stories we know nothing about
I call it acceptance
When you don't play your cards
I call it acceptance
When you don't live your heart
No excuses, I'll leave the town
No excuses, I'll leave the town
Cause I've lived in a rollercoaster
For a little while
And it didn't seem to get that high
This marathon has no end I know
But all I can do is run
And I forgive my legs when they burn
And they burn
