I hear voices screaming, haunted by demons.
This willful crime has done it's last crime.

I see my dirty face, smiling through the tears.
Silent voices telling me to treason.

All my tears, all my tears turn into rage, into rage.
Now all that's turned my fears, all my fears turned into strength.
It built my strength.

Breaking- Breaking the silence
Hiding- I'm tired of hiding
I know- I'll make my way out of this mess.

Breaking- Breaking the silence
Fighting- I will die fighting
I know - my courage will last forever.

My heart is aching, my love is fading.
So tired of living in fear.

Oh, theres nowhere to run.
My shade has taken all my pride.
Need to step out, can't rely on other speeches.

All my tears, all my tears turn into rage, into rage.
Now all that's turned my fears, all my fears turned into strength.
It built my strength.

Breaking- Breaking the silence
Hiding- I'm tired of hiding
I know- I'll make my way out of this mess.

Breaking- Breaking the silence
Fighting- I will die fighting
I know - my courage will last forever.

    General CommentI don't think she's part of any band.
    When I first heard this song, I thought Christina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil was the guest vocalist.

    As for the meaning, this song is indisputably about a beaten down person, who's carrying a loyalty to his or her oppressor, and now wants to be liberated, though it may cost his or her life.

    It seems to fit in with the overall theme of Allegiance.
