Confuse the way we all live life
We want the same pursue the prize
Our own way
Our own way

Consuming time to run in place
Thoughts intertwined can't navigate
And lose our way

Confuse the way we all live life
We want the same things at what price
Our own way
Our own way

Confuse the way we all live life
In acts of rage we throw the game but still play

Arise from your failures traitors all await your final fall
The curtain call
Despised imitators plagiarized dictators claims are false
All is lost
Arise

    General Commenti Think this song has to do with humans not being so different.. and how soon you loose sight that the person you hurt is looking for the same thing you are.. some type of prize. our own way is pretty self explanitory... we do everything our own way.. one thing that you may see to seperate you from another person.
    My 2nd favorite line from the song is when he says
    In acts of rage we throw the game but still play
    ... to put it bluntly it means when we get pissed and say we are gonna give it up.. or we don't care.. but we remain alive wether we are still moving forward or standing still.

    Arise from your failures traitors all await your final fall
    The curtain call

    this is about friends... and how you get up after being defeted because it shows your strength to all that have betrayed you.. they just want to see you stay down...

    Despised imitators plagiarized dictators claims are false
    All is lost

    i think what they mean here is we live our lives by the claims of others.. when we really don't no what to live our lives by... when we find that these dictators claims our false we relize we lived wrong for so many years and don;t know where to start over... which leads use to...

    All is lost

    General Commenthe is saying stop playing the game of life and make it your own, hence the song title and the repeating line our own way, im all for metaphor but this seems an almost literal explanation into the writers mind

    "Despised imitators plagiarized dictators claims are false" to me says that all the people that have ever been in power never truly had their own life they were bound by the rules of society and were forced into the worldwide game everything seems to be anymore

    "Consuming time to run in place
    Thoughts intertwined can't navigate
    And lose our way" seems to mean that we are just wasting time anymore because we arent learning for ourselves anymore its just knowledge piled up from more caches of knowledge and the person who figured this out is forgotten, people shouldnt be fed information because they will take it as the undoubtable truth

    the only thing that comes to mind from that part is nothing is taken only permitted whihc means we only know what those before or ahead of us want us to know so we must gather as much as we can and pick the truth we want

    General Commentyah hes saying our fatal flaw of wanting the same thing people before us have and keep running in place. when we should pursue a goal that hasn't been pursued before. and go our own way. at the end is the retort to those people who pursued the same goal. you all get lost with everyone else in history. this song is a great instrumental by the way.

    love the band love this song
