In time you'll realize
That life is but a mold
To be one with the seas
Is to fly on broken wings
Craft it to how you see fit
Recognize powers you hold
To be one with the seas
Is to fly on broken wings
I swear by the blood I have shed

In this battle I still stand opposing
Burning away conformities shackles
To rely on the hand that still feeds you
Suffocates all that you could have been
To achieve the victory
Is to set yourselves free
To be one with the seas
Is to fly on broken wings
I swear by the blood I have shed

Burning Burning
Faster Faster
Are your revolutionists
If I could collapse the masses
We'd be free to grow our wings
In time you'll realize
That life is but a mold
To be one with the seas
Is to fly on broken wings
I swear by the blood I have shed

To set yourself free

    General Commentthis song is amazing....actually ETI is unbelievably awesome.

    anyway this song to me is about being independent of everything society wants/expects out of you and growing in your own direction and becoming everything you want/expect out of yourself.

    General CommentThis is a great fucking song, where are all the Trivium fans? PLEASE COMMENT! Anyways, this song is about breaking free and just being yourself by not having to rely on anybody else. Hence the line, "To rely on the hand that still feeds you suffocates all that you could have been"

    Awesome fucking lyrics from an awesome fuckiing band! \m/

    General CommentI like what RollingRock said about the lyrics. This song is about being your own person and being true to yourself. To let society and other people control and dictate who you are would be like wearing shackles and being imprisoned with no say on your life. This song is basically about breaking free from the hive mind of society and being independent.
