Here we are saving lives again,
silver spoons and a pocket full of meds.
We do it all to back our way out of here.
Taking on the world you say,
want to go against the grain
not giving up on what I want here...
Here we are.
Do I know that the reason I'm falling is all my fault,
setting up an illusion of freedom has tricked us all.
Tame a lion to rule a nation, then wonder why he claws our way through, sing it again and again and again...
Sing a new song to break my heart,
crumble these walls, I need to fall apart.
Play a new chord to wake me up,
I'm sleeping with dreams that never give enough
empty old thoughts in black and white,
I always speak up, but I never join the fight
I want to see red drip from my hands,
the nail in route will pierce this modern man
it's gonna be tough to beat this soil, but a land with no love,
even Rome might fall again.
