When was the last time our hearts beat so fast
That we couldn't keep 'em in our chests
And our feet they touched solid ground
The kind that hasn't been touched by human progress
When was the last time we stayed awake the whole night through
Not counting; sheep or trying to get some sleep
But making sure our dreams are already made manifest
And if your answer is like mine is "too long ago"
And if you hear the music but you can't feel the soul
And if ever day's another battle to prove you still have control
We can't take it in stride we gotta keep it love

This is how it's gonna be
We got nothing without our thoughts
We're just cars pulling; out of abandoned parking lots

I'm burning out on all the action, I want the passions
This is how it's gonna be
I'm burning out on all the fashion, give me interaction
This is how it's gonna be
Another sucker for the cash in, and look what happens
This is how it's gonna be


And all my people keep it live, we're trying to strive
Do what you gotta to survive it
Whether working nine to five, or hurting outside
Stay unified just not divided
And man keep rolling with the times, keep molding the rhymes
And feeling fine, we're realigning
So if it's draggin pay no mind, just take in the shine
And keep it live up on the front line


Now maybe we've tried hard, in pain tried to forget
Behind these metal bars lay our dreams as cold as death
And years and years of planning, the bloodstains, hope and sweat
It's not a solid backing for the fears that here once crept
So let this be a less to the times and tourniquets
And with our flags surrendering let us start the paths we've set
And as this union grows, and we forge our first footsteps
May memories not loose hold of all the tears that we once wept

I'm burning out on all the action, I want the passions
This is how it's gonna be
I'm burning out on all the fashion, give be interaction
This is how it's gonna be
Another sucker for the cash in, they started blastin'
This is how it's gonna be
I'm getting caught up in the captions, trapped in the transactions
This is how it's gonna be
