Wear your desecration
Like a declaration of your war
Scars that make impressions
After all that's what these lessons have all been for

How can I face this disease
I can't get away from me
How can I face this disease
Can anybody help me
How can I face this day

Take it by the fucking throat and say that I will live through this
Take it by the fucking soul and live through this

For your pleasure
or your pain
Society's a game

While they campaign in poetry
And govern in prose
In their twisted sorority
Dying for the throne
You never really know just who the king will choose
Till your bygones are gone

Everything wrong with you is the same that's wrong with me
What's wrong with me is everything wrong with you

It's a brand new mirror
I see myself for the first time
It's oh so clear
Open my heart
Open my mind

    General CommentLOVE this song, mostly because of the lyrics but the whole thing is great.

    Especially love "they campaign in poetry but govern in prose"

    "society's a game"

    Sums up planet earth perfectly. The aliens are facepalming.

    Freaking brilliant writing.

    Song MeaningTry to learn the right lessons for the bad things happened to you in the past, don't be afraid to make mistakes and face your problems. Society is a b*tch, but it is what it is. Politicians and other b*stards are involved in all sorts of dirty games, but if you don't want to be a part of that - just ignore it and stick to your thing. You might even find out that you are not the only one who faces various problems and dilemmas in life, we are many. And in the end, if you find in yourself the strength to overcome all the bad things in your life, you'll become a better person, you'll see a new reflection of yourself in the mirror
