Another year has past
He's stuck behind the glass
The corporate machine
That crushes hopes and dreams

Where did it all go wrong?
It's not where we belong
Is this the final straw?
I'm screaming out for more

OK, I confess I've been feeling stressed
Thinking evil thoughts when it's time to rest
What you stand for really does not interest me

Now that we digress into nothingness
Pointless, nostaglic logic with emptiness
What you stand for really does not concern me

The room started spinning
The red mist desending
Make your move for the door
Kick over chairs
And run down the stairs
I just can't take anymore

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

My head's heavy now, this is killing me
All these simple minds that just can't agree
What you strive for really does not affect me

Can you see yourself as you try your best
Slave to power, so confused and self obsessed
What you strive for really does not impress me

The room started spinning
The red mist desending
Make your move for the door
Kick over chairs
And run down the stairs
I just can't take anymore

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

Rise up, rise up, rise up, rise...

I hear you calling
Are we still falling...?

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution

Rise up, join the revolution
Take away the lies
Leave this institution
