Dressed in the chains we've chosen to strife
We got to stay in our prisons for the rest of our lives
We got to pray for severance

Wake in disgrace of the fate in our hands
We got the fire in our hearts and our heads in the sand
We got to pay remembrance

It sleeps in the heart of every man
And as we walk in our trance hide as best as we can
We all need our innocence

Blessed with the pain we have chosen to hide
We got to stay inside our walls for the rest of the night
Below the wheels of reverence

Where can we meet when the war left behind
When a mother blind with grief has abandoned her child
We got to leave in difference

Swear this morning lights the hour
Embrace a different sky
Divide the sun from the blind
Swear your sorrow blinds the hour
Inhale a different light
Divide the stars from the night

The river flows, the morning cries the end
The wind won't blow, to sanctify defense
The tears you show, are violation sent

Wake in disgrace of the fate in our hands
We got the fire in our hearts and our heads in the sand
We got to pay rememberance

Swear this morning lights the hour
Embrace a different sky
Divide the sun from the blind
Swear your morning light devours
To wave the world goodbye
Exile the sun from your life
