Are we running so far
From facing the numbers who
Crash in an empty room?
False visions we search
And reflections consume
But the mirror is everyone's tomb

What we'll find, the waste of time
Self-hating days in the image maze
Losing sight of our roots in the empty shells
Where everyone fights themselves
Everyone fights themselves

We're tired of looking out from blank eyes
I get so tired of waiting, tired of waiting
Outside, and watch the good life in the window
Blank eyes, I get so tired of waiting, tired of waiting
Outside, another answer for our crimes

And I get so tired of waiting for it
To find the truth in everything rejected
And I get so tired of waiting, tired of waiting
Another day between the lines

Rooftop to rooftop, screaming out into the sky
We fight the war inside us
Turning answers into questions
Through all this vanity we'll fight 'til soul rebuild
Fools gold, what we've had
The symptoms of a world gone mad

The world lies, the masses cry
Children's lives spent sewing up our cheap disguise
Losing sight of out roots in the cathode rays
Amnesia for the end of our days
Amnesia for the end of our days

We're tired of looking out from blank eyes
I get so tired of waiting, tired of waiting
Outside, until it's nothing special
Blank eyes, I get so tired of waiting, tired of waiting
Outside, another answer for our crimes

And I get so tired of waiting for it
To find the truth in everything rejected
And I get so tired of waiting, tired of waiting
Another day between the lines

We're all gone dead, what we reject
We're all gone dead, what we reject
We're all gone dead, what we reject
Wake up everyone

Blank eyes, tired of waiting
Outside, here I am
Blank eyes, tired of waiting, tired of wasting all away
Outside, here I am

    General Comment"losing sights of our roots in the cathode rays"
    love it, I don't exactly know what the artist meant by that line
    but
    I interpret it rather profoundly.
    A cathode ray was a set-up used by JJ Thompson when he discovered the existence and properties of electrons. The first solid evidence of the existence of subatomic particles. So, thanks to the cathode tube and its revelation, we were able to delve in much deeper into the science of chemistry.
    So within the cathode ray, we lost vision of what is really important in life, the real challenges we as the human race face.
    more later, gotta run!
