about

lyrics

Yes, I see the darkness, but it doesn't terrify me
It only makes me angry that so many walk so blindly
Into a trap where we are all rats
And how did we let ourselves accept that?

Beautiful was innocence
But in a sense I'm glad it's gone
An empty bliss was ignorance
I've learned the truth and now I'm stronger

If you sleep comfortably here in the big house
Entranced by this mind numbing put-on parade…
You can cover your ears while I open my big mouth
And inhale the fumes of this building ablaze
Aim for the rocks and ignore every lighthouse
Keep on believing you're free and you're saved
Or if you dare…

...Enough! This is not the way
And if I stay here, day after day
It'd be the gravest, the gravest mistake
No, I won't be canary for any coal mines
I won't be a rat left to wander this maze.
No upstanding monkey, whose given up comfortably,
Drawn by the call of some old gilded cage
Won't let unspoken anger turn cancer inside of me
Baffled by helplessness, failure and shame
For some, that chapter's been written.
Well, now I'm turning the page.
I said, now I'm turning the page.
