We need to shape a way out
Trapped beneath currents in
This endless fight
It's hard enough bonding with a tide

Wasting all this time to be mislead
Can't find myself - I still pretend
Raise the courage to fend a path
Liberate against worlds of mayhem
Building the strength to defect
Training armies so hopelessly dissident

Another war to break the pieces
Cellular walls to prevent release

Haunting our conscience we mindlessly follow

Statues of saints crumble away
No monuments to pray for ending this age
Hiroshimical craters will choke our respiration
This battle was lost long before the extinguish

Self-immolation will make us victorious
Occultation slips into our fears
Losing sight of presence that lured those here

Prisons of the mind
Become one

Left without chance
Becoming insecure
Shading the fades
Distorting visions

All that's left to live for

What's chosen now is done
A Conflict postponed has begun
There's no infantry to defend
Roads leading out have come to an end
