Welcome to the day that you opened your eyes So wide that it nearly took your life away And you are finally seeing all the things That you have been missing Could it really be that you have been so blind Or just merely looking the other way Today the world comes into focus And the hardest truth that you have ever known Grabs you by the throat There never was a light at the end of the tunnel The tunnel you have been trapped in all these years And one simple answer cuts down all of your questions And two and two suddenly makes five And it's a revelation that you can no longer hide from You are falling, sinking, drowning, burning in lies (There is nothing left for you to hold onto) You've found the landmine with your foot And your world is about to flip upside down Falling lower than you've ever been You will have to fight to ever get up again It's uglier than it's ever been This World But it's yours now and you finally know What you are up against It's up to you to take it This World You stick out your tongue and taste the rain Because there will be no going home again This is the hollow point The truth that you've been searching for All these long years All the horror that you've uncovered With you now and forever more The bullet that tears right through you Leaves you broken Scarred for life All the lies that your teachers told you All the things your parents said Soaked through with gasoline Gun shots echo through your head This world will run right through you This world will run you through

    General Commenti love this song. positive and hard. the way i like it. this is what hardcore is about. i'm surprised no one has commented on this song since i think it's one of their strongest and next to superhero this is my favorite song by bane. i think this song is really just about growing up and facing the world. it's about learning the ways of the world, and opening your eyes. i think the song writing on this song is realy strong musically. i love the chord progression.

    true 'til death
