Revelations 05:31
We stopped believing in what we should really do A profit nation can’t see these lies all through The gates are closing, day becomes the night If no one will believe in us then who will win the fight? Hearing what you say, I can’t make up my mind You’ll believe it when you see it when the planets have aligned The end is drawing near, our cataclysmic fear I’m so lost in superstition I could make it my career You’ll all see, it’s not just me, that eventually, it’s catastrophe The world is changing, we’re all changing too Our caustic kinship will soon become our doom Yeah, yeah yeah yeah our impending doom Every day and every night we sing songs joy we sing songs of fright All the walls are closing in, how can we crush our mortal sin? Soon the beasts will rise with a fire in the skies Our demise will be short and swift, a carnival of cries Politicians, activism, little fish and who will kill them Delusions of the mind, I hope this can subside Calibrate, substantiate, illuminate our cosmic fate Contemplate the notion, give in to devotion Origins of space entwined, our allegiance to all of mankind Seeing all I’ve seen, I can’t be undefined All the reasons for the seasons til the end of time Our purpose here remains so unclear Our lives prolonged, but who belongs in the tides of grace and the human race All that we fear, and all we’ve confined will leave us empty with nothing inside All that we mean, and all that we’ll be… will lead us home Stories told, life in the fold The autumn shade passes by Looming clouds overhead Our worlds aligned, lost in rewind A world sustained, stuck in refrain The world will never be the same

You find your woman, you’ll find a way Can’t find your woman she’s gone astray You find your woman, you’ll find a way Can’t find your woman she’s gone astray Well when’s the first time you realized, you had both apologized, reconciled the fact that you can never retract this and that. This is all our history, our lives a blissful mystery So when you hear fate’s truthful call, You gotta rise to the occasion even if it's a crawl She’s gonna reach out to your soul She’ll make you lose control It’s all in front of you It’s all right in front of you Can’t find a reason, can’t find a way Can’t find a reason to my dismay Can’t find a reason, can’t find a way Can’t find a reason to climb away So you say that he’s not all that bad, you’re only sad because all the times that you had, Can’t let go of what we know, don’t show your face, conceal it without a trace Individual identities defining reality Soon displaced, erased from this disgraced state of grace, uneven pace, invaded space She gives in for that cold embrace She’s gonna reach out to your soul She’ll make you lose control It’s all in front of you It’s all right in front of you And all that you held on to It may all just seem so untrue It’s all in front of you The lights have gone out and there’s nothing else that we can do Nothing that we can do Nothing we can do This is the analysis of the missing A contradiction that we’re living So relentlessly we whine and cry Deny all the convictions that are supplied Dual enamored in this state of manner, Glitz and glamour, in this pageant of the latter Not that that it matters, cause it’s all up to her You can’t blame me if the puss wants to purr It’s all up to her It’s all up to him It’s all up to you It’s all up to you

Why do you let them treat you this way? Why do you let them treat you this way? Why do you let them treat you this way? Why do you let them treat you this way? And when you're struggling and falling down I'll call your name from the crowd and when you're struggling and still falling down just turn around and I'll catch you, catch you, I'll catch you Well how can I just stand by, watch your problems multiply I don't buy your alibi seeing you with that guy He's just lyin' to you face to face and I know you're just trying to find a place to feel safe so you say that you're struggling everyday and you say that's ok well you can call on me from in the crowd and I'll catch you, catch you, I'll catch you Why do you let them treat you this way? Why do you let them treat you this way? Why do you let them treat you this way? Why do you let them treat you this way? and I ask you why do let them treat you like they do when there's nothing better than me loving you and I ask you why do let them treat you like they do when there's nothing better than my love for you Why do you let them still treat you this way? Cause no one got very far, without a struggle along the way You hold brighter days

That Moment 05:01
Gotta believe, gotta believe gotta believe in order to leave you gotta order to keep Those lines untangled, or else leave the world in shambles Gotta relive, gotta relive gotta relive that moment the one that you started with It’s the one that’ll tell you which way to go You sit there waiting for the call, but do you believe any of it all? The reason for this time-changing rearranging, this tithe-binded bribe, this hive mind prescribed Salutations from the grave we’re glad to see you’ve all been saved This proposition will not fail, cut the ropes and then set sail, Illustrate the things you love, the things you hate, don’t hesitate Delusions of our mind keep us trapped in time It’s our grand illusion false allusion that keeps these cogs aligned You have all this love to give, don’t be afraid to forgive The world is anew, become what it is that you love to do Though harsh and tough it seems, the wheel still turns for humanity, Our values remained unchanged, exchanged for the life we’ve prearranged All our lives, we’re all the same The stage set for life actors playing this game Gotta believe, gotta believe gotta believe in order to leave you gotta order to keep Those lines untangled, or else leave the world in shambles Gotta relive, gotta relive gotta relive that moment the one that you started with It’s the one that’ll tell you which way to go All our lives, we’re all the same The stage set for life actors playing this game All our lives, we’re all the same The stage comes to life Don’t leave the world behind, all that reminds us of better times The choices you made, won’t leave you alone Your soul is free, those things you’ve outgrown You’ve found your way It’s the world at bay that leads us astray We’ve seen this episode run on, and on, and on, and on Gotta believe, gotta believe gotta believe in order to leave you gotta order to keep Those lines untangled, or else leave the world in shambles Gotta relive, gotta relive gotta re-live that moment the one that you started with It’s the one that’ll tell you which way to go All our lives, we’re all the same The stage set for life, actors playing this game
