I see now... I see through the veil of expectation.
I see now... I see that conformity is betrayal.

Betrayal of those who are forgotten, yet vision alone furthers our blame.
Unless followed by transformation, it is pointless to be given sight.
Without the hope of our reaction, we overlook the purpose of our eyes.

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light.
(blinding of false light) Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny.
In weakness we are freed...

I see now... I see that conformity is betrayal.

With empty eyes I looked ahead (ahead), with clarity I now look back...

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light
(blinding of false light). Now is our chance (our chance) to breathe without... without tyranny.
In weakness we are freed... Yeah...

I admit my failure. Opacity has dulled my senses.
Conformity (conformity) controlled by lifeless vices. Oh... Yeah...
Covetousness (covetousness) disguised as ambition.
But now it ends... But now it ends... But now it ends...
But now it ends, not with defeat but determination... We are freed.... Yeah...

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny,
released from the blinding of false (false) light (light).
Now is our chance... Now is...our chance... In weakness we are freed...

    the first thing that comes to mind for me on this one is stated in James 2:20 "faith without works is dead" meaning that it doesnt stop once your saved... yes you will be saved from an eternity of hell (which i cannot thank God enough for saving me from) but works is a sign of the Holy Spirit working in you.... in other words good works are not necessary to be saved but its a sign you are saved....

    "Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light.
    (blinding of false light) Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny.

    im not exactly when tim is referring to but its saying that now we can live the way God wants us to without the distractions of this world

    "I see now... I see that conformity is betrayal."

    Christ died and rose again for us and if we blatantly disregard that and conform to this world rather than being "transformed by the renewing of your mind" then this is betrayal

    "With empty eyes I looked ahead (ahead), with clarity I now look back..."

    all i can say is hindsight is 20/20 lol

    "I admit my failure. Opacity has dulled my senses.

    But now it ends, not with defeat but determination... We are freed.... Yeah..."

    tim realized that hes messed up because fame and money has "dulled his senses"
    demons are real... thats a fact... and we are constantly tempted by them... (hence lifeless voices)
    his want for more and more money and fame was disguised by a "noble cause"
    now he wants to turn around and start anew
