about

lyrics

At first they see through the reinforced structures.
Their vision cuts through the closed doors.
Walls surrounding protect us, encase us.
But not for long, baby, not for long.

Authority dictates that you're not real.
Just a guardian that pulls me through.
You say we all are perfect in your mind.
Then why can't we see eye to eye?

We cannot sing, we cannot dance.
We build these lies with broken hands.

We spread your love with the city's crime,
using wisdom every single time.
I've been fighting your virtues with rationale,
With reason and judgement.
Can you tell?

Like fire on oil, we burn so clean.
I've watched it behind a movie screen.
So move your pawns and guide your king.
This stalemate's so cold; so antiquated.

We cannot move, we cannot see.
We breathe and tremble when you speak.
We cannot sing, we cannot dance.
We build these lies with broken hands.

These are the tables that I've turned.
Don't fret 'cause I can learn.
Are you surprised at my achievements?
You're like my monument.
