This is the last time I will struggle
The eyes of a million
Follow each step I take
Walking further into hell

The weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
We hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be

Every motion creates a canyon left empty
Slowly the path begins to crumble and split

Destruction lurks waiting to fill the void
While the other motions grief and iridescent light

A sense of knowing and divide
This is a choice in which we all relate
This is a choice make up your mind

Following step by step in each of our lives
Eyes always following and watching speaking tongues unknown
Following step by step, I go

It's torn away when I try to hold on

I grab the end of my senses dragging them to reality
And as I see who I am know this is the path to being free

This is the last time I will struggle
The eyes of a million
Follow each step I take
Walking further into hell

The weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
We hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be
Seemingly perfect like a grid composed of dots

    The time to let everything go, and realize the truth.

    "The weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
    We hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be"

    That you create what you want to see, maybe from what you heard from other people.

    "Every motion creates a canyon left empty
    Slowly the path begins to crumble and split"

    New paths are put out in front of you, and its your choice to decide what you want.

    "Destruction lurks waiting to fill the void
    While the other motions grief and iridescent light"

    That there is always a good and bad side to things in life, but all in all, you choose the outcome.

    "A sense of knowing and divide
    This is a choice in which we all relate
    This is a choice make up your mind"

    About deciding whats important and not, understanding your purpose.

    "Following step by step in each of our lives
    Eyes always following and watching speaking tongues unknown
    Following step by step, I go"

    The people around you.

    "It's torn away when I try to hold on"

    You will see that if you try hard enough, the truth comes out; masks are unveiled.

    "I grab the end of my senses dragging them to reality
    And as I see who I am know this is the path to being free"

    When you trust yourself, you will see that it is "the path to being free".

    "The weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
    We hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be
    Seemingly perfect like a grid composed of dots"

    Don't believe everything you hear, trust yourself.

    General CommentTo me it seems like it's more about moving forward in life even though your situation may not be ideal. It's about letting go when things fall apart so you can move on to new things. Those who hold on and restrain themselves will never be free to move forward in life.

    Song MeaningAPOLOGIES FOR THE COMMENT ABOVE (HIT TAB TO MOVE IN SEVERAL SPACES AND THEN HIT ENTER TO GO DOWN A LINE THUS HITTING POST) CANT SEE A WAY TO DELETE

    This is the last time I will struggle
    The eyes of a million
    Follow each step I take
    Walking further into hell

    I see this as having everyone judging each others every move with the way the media tells us what looks good and what doesnt, whats right and whats wrong

    The weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
    We hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be

    the people who are so frozen by the fear of this judgement are crushed by the feelings yet they know who they are inside but cant express it without the fear of the ridicule

    Every motion creates a canyon left empty
    Slowly the path begins to crumble and split

    every new idea we get of what looks good or bad causes a new group of people to lose their confidence in them selves causing a canyon like void

    Destruction lurks waiting to fill the void
    While the other motions grief and iridescent light

    with this new found problems with ones appearance and not fitting into every-ones "perfect person" idea hatred and anger fill the new void

    A sense of knowing and divide
    This is a choice in which we all relate
    This is a choice make up your mind

    a sense of knowing ones true identity and the divide we all face as we put up walls to cover how we truly feel to gain acceptance, so either be who you are 100% or live knowing your still fake to yourself

    Following step by step in each of our lives
    Eyes always following and watching speaking tongues unknown
    Following step by step, I go

    we all follow media (some more than others) and we all strive to fit in and be the best new thing but we still all judge each other so much harsher than we wish to be judged our self, with everyone watching you for who you are and whispering words of spite and judgment of which you are left to imagine and fear

    It's torn away when I try to hold on

    you try to hold onto your self but with the worlds ever growing lack of acceptance to each other it gets ripped away

    I grab the end of my senses dragging them to reality
    And as I see who I am know this is the path to being free

    by focusing on the reality of what is what you can see who you really are and know that that is living, living with out the fear of prejudice and rejection

    This is the last time I will struggle
    The eyes of a million
    Follow each step I take
    Walking further into hell

    The weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
    We hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be
    Seemingly perfect like a grid composed of dots

    we have been force fed all our lives to be good little people who all wear suits and have great happy little lives and we are all the same we are all simple dots making a grid without a spec of individuality because it was killed off by the fear of judgment

    could be grasping at straws but the idea flowed easily and it made sense to me, a real propblem we all face, one of which we need to get over
