How could such potential go unrealized
The natives speak in tongues and tangled truths while chanting
diatribes
Somewhere deep down in the subconscious wrapped in riddles lies
The meaning of this life we try to find but only lose our minds

Through my blind desperation soul solely rages on
Social defacing here my replacement comes
Rumors of cutbacks harbored hypocrisy
My heart dwells in darkness
My body imprisons me

Breakdown - All the walls have fallen
My soul solely rages on
Storm the palace seize the crown
Soul solely rages
Whispered winds soon sound the calling
My soul solely rages on
Betray your malice heed your vows
On

Victory misery glory defeat
The war inside pushing me
Brings me to bleed
I thank you all for the laughs
Just like the poison in me
Raise a glass for my father then put me to sleep

Breakdown - All the walls have fallen
My soul solely rages on
Storm the palace seize the crown
Soul solely rages
Whispered winds soon sound the calling
My soul solely rages on
Betray your malice heed your vows
On

Erase those saccharine smiles vague in their sincerity
Lift these veiled chains in an endless search for clarity
Barely hanging on to a faith I'd briefly known
I've seen an angels face, the broken wings on which she'd flown
Emotion fades to faceless as we soon become sedate
Is it time to mourn this loss or is it time to celebrate

Through my blind desperation soul solely rages on
Social defacing here my replacement comes
Rumors of cutbacks harbored hypocrisy
My heart dwells in darkness
My body imprisons me

Breakdown - All the walls have fallen
My soul solely rages on
Storm the palace seize the crown
Soul solely rages
Whispered winds soon sound the calling
My soul solely rages on
Betray your malice heed your vows
On and on and on and on
Soul solely rages on

    General CommentBasically one of your "Take the bull by the horns" kinda deal, telling you to make the best of your life, and not settling for bottom.
