Why lives are cast in the waves of days
Numbness feeling redemption - wakes the pain
King factory setting rates of fate
Unattended infections
Wise up, time to testify
Wise up, time to mystify
Wise up, time for us to try
Reversing alienation

I'M DROWNING, into abstraction
I'M DROWNING, down to where we wanna be
I'M DROWNING, into abstraction
I'M FLAILING OUT

We're gonna rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
They're gonna let us rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
They're gonna let us rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
They're gonna let us rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
But I'm gonna stand

White towers of bits - stacked into the flames
Lies for turning dissention builds the day
Wiped mind of the modern age
Cries for something to mention
Wise up, to the trampled mind
Wise up, time to realign
Wise up, to the chalking line
Mark the death of aggression

I'M DROWNING, into abstraction
I'M DROWNING, down to where we wanna be
I'M DROWNING, into abstraction
I'M FLAILING OUT

We're gonna rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
They're gonna let us rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
They're gonna let us rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
They're gonna let us rise up 'til we suffer, going to rise up to our knees
But I'm gonna stand

It's doesn't have to be this way
Break the bottled dissention
Wage the war-tearing normalcy
Explosion causing attention

Tear down the factory
Tear down the factory
Tear down the factory
Give back our broken lives
Tear down the factory
Tear down the factory
Tear down the factory
Tear down the limits of your life
