Two eyes flash in twilight, two thoughts in rhyme
"Gravities' mine and I'm prepared"
Two feet meet in rhythm, two hands did find
the weak link the towers share

Beneath their foundations a river's rage
The dam that stands reveals its age
From the cracks the water's flowing and makes a line
directly toward the unknowing

I can set a flood in motion, for the arrogant's plans
are always built on sand
And like the wind drives the rain,
the subterranean will bring pain

I can feel the surge of madness in mind
I can hear the minions marching in time
I can taste the breathe of freedom
I am free, I am free, I am free
We are free

To arm the dissidents and the dispossessed
I'll be there, I will be there
To give back power and what it possessed
I'll be there, I will be there
To live our dreams, to not ask why
We'll be there, we will be there
To scale the mountain, to reign on high
We'll be there, we will be there

Relieve us now of misery
The wheels are set in spin
Moments now the end begins
And here I'll make my stand
To watch it fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Water fills the waiting earth
and washes it so clean
Swept up in the rushing waves
And now I feel what I mean
And I fade away
Fade away
Fade away
And I wash away
Wash away
Fade away

It is starting
There's no stopping
All's collapsing
What is happening?

Cries to screams, screams to cries, cries to moans
Flesh to steel, steel to flesh, concrete to bone
Water bled, blue to red, blood to water
Led to here, led to where? Led to slaughter
Overwhelming sound
Swaying breaking sound
Wailing pounding sound
Cracking crumbling sound

Thought I could lose the thought that
Brought me to the thought that
Brought me here to this demise
Thought I could lose the thought that
Rules us all and believes that
One must lose in order to find
And though the storms inside me
gave me strength to be a mighty river,
I was still not the tide

Thought he could free the world
and so free himself
But he was his own demise

It is still, the daylight comes
But nothing moves, not anyone
Awake, my bent and broken ones,
and come walk with me
You all seem paralyzed
Hollow bodies, sunken eyes
But we have won, we are alive
So come walk with me
Walk with me, for I have healed your pain

I touch the ground, my hand passes through
But I feel the touch of all of you
Letting go, I slip into the other side
Sent away to a place I've never seen
No fears or cares, here all's serene
Where did I fly away? To where did I fly away?

Millions of spirits have begun to gather
in order to be reborn
Millions of voices in unison chanting
that I must lead them on
I say "We must bring the oppressor here
To seek solace by means of its end
And we must redeem our own selves here
We must be sure it has no life after death"
(We will comfort you
We will bring you peace
We believe in you
We will be released)
And then we'll fly away to a better time

What we'll find, we'll wait and see
Is it machine or man? A man or machine?
Every single one that suffered wants you
They want you

Strange how what I once needed, they seek today
Death did not gain them freedom, so here they stayed
From within and from without, revenge is ours, there is no doubt
And in between that and this, our oppressor will taste the serpent's kiss
