i witnessed your death
you gave it up to the rape of indifference
now take those dreams to die.

so can you feel it now?
its just that question of letting the end
be the answer.
now...its pulling us down
these days become years watching
time disappear

again again again
i wont give in.

this is a misfits rejection
of a life in submission

your choice
destroys
what life could be

you just sold out quick
talk is some cheap shit
can you remember the last time that your life
meant more than fucking payments?
Know this...i quit!

wealth means shit
tell me what's right...
you got the cash
but you're hollow within
so much worse than that mortal sin

this is it..
this is my life
you can't buy me

tell me I'm worthless because net worth
determines a man
i won't give in

when slave wage brings chains made
to keep you conformed cuz they can
i won't give in

I'll keep on struggiling
Because thats the measure of a man

right?

Your dreams are disavowed
so you must feel it now!
it's just that question of letting the end be the answer.
Now...it's pulling us down

these days becomes years
watching time disappear

again again and again

i will never let them break me down
these hands will never be bound

in greed you can drown, in greed you can drown

but i will still be dreaming
yeah
and i will still be fighting

what more can anyone say? you have lost your way.

    General Commentjust got the album, this song is about being persistent and fighting for what you want/love in a world where everyone else is corrupt, greedy, and a conformist.

    "i will never let them break me down
    these hands will never be bound"

    how sick is that?...wow.

    General CommentIts about refusing to conform to a world where people settle down, give up their hopes and dreams, and live boring lives consisting of going to work everyday and seeking wealth just because its expected of them. The lyrics strike out against people like this calling them weak sell outs and how the writer would rather struggle and fight than give in, because its a measure of himself as a man and its what he believes is right.

    General Commenteveryone needs to listen to this song and understand it. i know they arent a christan band but this gives a very positive message and i think its pretty awesome. "THis is my life you cant buy me." could be referring to satan and temptation. doubt it but either way this song is kick ass.
