Oh.. It started out, the cells divide. They conquer and they fall. In trace amounts, the shadows hide. They can’t be seen at all. I can’t be broken by this. I’ll scream. I’ll break through silence. They say we’re maladjusted. Break down, force fed this violence. It’s not enough to know my place. (It’s not enough, it’s not enough.) So… who’s the freak on the side. I’m just a freak on the inside.

Chorus
But you can’t save this time. (You’ve been holding us back, was it all just an act this time?) Bold and out of line. Now are you telling the truth? Was it reason to count us wise? With those separating signs.

So the shallow quips, once clever lines. Corrupt and in decay. It burns anew, the cells divide. In time they fade away. Like dynasties before them, breakdown, return to silence. These histories ignore them. But still they’re crawling backwards. It’s not enough to know my place. (It’s not enough, it’s not enough.) So… who’s the freak on the side… I’m just a freak on the inside

Chorus
But you can’t save this time. (You’ve been holding us back, was it all just an act this time?) Bold and out of line. Now are you telling the truth? Was it reason to count us wise? With those separating signs.

Now, the shadows fall. And darkness fades away. Time. Filters endlessly and midnight turns to day. I won’t be cowering. These overpowering mistakes. I’ve made my share. Now I know. It’s more then I can take
