lyrics

Captivating our minds
Tasting life while still confined
Always surrounded by it all
Everything made out to be benign

Late is the hour
To redeem us from our powers

When we see our tainted world
When we hear our final breath
Only then will we define our fate

Deviating from the pain
Bowing down in shame
Leaving all the mystery behind

Beating in rhythm with ourselves
A place where nothing ever sleeps
Embracing inevitable times
Stirring everyone's beliefs

Painfully reminiscing
Of a time we're all missing

Deviating from the pain
Bowing down in shame
Leaving all the mystery behind

Welcome to your own demise
Crying out for change
Stumbling through the Technocracy

Breaking
You always win
Breaking
We are nothing

If I could trust you
Would I betray you?
If I could free you
Would I enslave you?
If I could love you
Why would I leave you
Confused and cold?

If I could trust you
Would I betray you?
If I could free you
Would I enslave you?
Bound by your hypocrisy
Trapped within this Technocracy
