My eyes close tighter
To wish it all away
No one will be left to take the blame
sinking deeper into the unbroken cycle of self-slavery
One day will come when all will change
It's all the same

Uncovered freezing
In the depths of your mind - So alone
Exposed, unbroken, against this wind and sun
Defiance

Nothing will change innocent children remaining as slaves
The truth denied - and their lies
Burn me alive

I kneel before you
This is myself
This is my inner self
My true self
and Me

    General CommentThis song is about all the corruption and evil that exsists within this world and how things arent getting better.
    "My eyes close tighter To wish it all away"- he doesnt want to be a part of this clod harsh world. "The truth denied - and their lies Burn me alive"- This is talking about the government and how they cover up and lie about the real issues of the world like the enslaved children.
