I hit the ground running
With nowhere to go
The system is blind and flawed - don't tell me to let go
There's a mob at the corner
Can't they just let the man go
Like a wild fire it spreads, wherever the wind blows

Is anyone out there - tap on the window
The person with answers - has called in a no show
I know of a problem - I'm taking my chances
I'm dancing with ego - caught in the branches
Is anyone out there - with the same dream
The same broken record - or so it seems
I'm stuck at the crossroads - with no end in sight
And I don't think that I'll ever be the same

Born into nothing
I just can't take anymore
It's something I can't explain - I just want more
For blood or for money
So far from home
Did god grow tired of us, I just have to know

In the killing fields - where no dreams go
In the killing fields - where dreams grow cold

In the killing fields

    General CommentI dunno why, but the first verse just reminds me of when I used to be bullied as a teen. I just remember the first time trying to tell some kids to back off from another kid and instead.. they started chasing me and I ended up getting heat for trying to do something 'right'. Counselor said that I should have called another teacher before trying to step in and that I had just provoked the bullys and made things wrong and therefore.. he said it was my fault for being in that situation.

    Which kinda fits the "system is blind and flawed" part in the song.

    But yeah, I guess the song is fitting for some who believe that there is a certain destiny for them in life, but just don't know where they can 'properly' fit or which path they can trust. Some people try to look or hope that someone can give them all the answers, but sometimes waiting for others isn't the best choice in life.

    Song MeaningAt face value, it's about Genocide. Just imagine the Holocaust - from ghetto to camp- as you listen to the lyrics.
