Hunted by mindless beasts
Haunted by my desire
To create and destroy
To defy with a smile
Everyday is stick and move
Either way they’re after you
Mediocre their soulless lives
They live for nothing
They have no pride
They’re always after me
Pleading eyes & vacant arms
They’re always draining me
Needy souls, empty hearts
Can’t pull the wool over my eyes
I can still see

[Chorus:]
I'm so tired but I won't stop moving
Fearful, my humanity is running away
I’m not foolish I won't stop dreaming
I know that I can be better than I am today
The pressure builds and I'm starting to break
I'm so tired but I won't stop moving
Fearful, my humanity is running away

Away, far from here
From all the cowards and fear
Far away, from here
From all the cowards and fear
The push beyond ones self
To live in the unknown
Can’t pull the wool over my eyes
I can still see
You can’t blind me

[Chorus:]
I'm so tired but I won't stop moving
Fearful, my humanity is running away
I’m not foolish I won't stop dreaming
I know that I can be better than I am today
The pressure builds and I'm starting to break
I'm so tired but I won't stop moving
Fearful, my humanity is running away

GO!

If you've never been tested
Then you'll never see
What lives inside of you
Is worth more than anything

[Solo]

And at that moment
When I doubt myself
I pick my feet up
And I hit the ground

[Chorus:]
I'm so tired but I won't stop moving
Fearful, my humanity is running away
I’m not foolish I won't stop dreaming
I know that I can be better than I am today
The pressure builds and I'm starting to break
I'm so tired but I won't stop moving
Fearful, my humanity is running away
...AWAY
...RUNNING AWAY

    My InterpretationI personally identify this song to my life sometimes, and in my opinion the whole message is metaphoric.The "mindless beasts" are inner demons, like fear, mediocrity or depression, and as they're inside his head, he feels like they are always hunting him. The main topic for me is self-improvement and getting better in whatever you do instead of letting your these demons 'blind' you, but making it clear it will never be easy, it is tiring and takes hard work, and you may feel like your humanity is running away at some point.

    "If you've never been tested
    Then you'll never see
    What lives inside of you
    Is worth more than anything"
