Time is wearing down my fight
My determination
Dividing in my head
This degeneration cull
It's my definition
Recalling all I am
Where I begin

I could live my life for the void inside
To the vacant rise surrender mine
Forever divide

But I know
How the rest will go
And the line
That I live behind
Never hide
Never Compromise
Like Them
Everything I am
Is what I'm not

In my revelation
I can see it all clear
My enemy, my guide
Every idol I refuse
Every declaration
Becoming all I am
To my end

    General Comment"Lyrically, this song takes a similar approach as the song “Not I,” from The Triptych, in that it focuses on the things that we choose not to buy into — or distance ourselves from — as defining characteristics…that sometimes feel just as important as the things that we choose to adhere to." -Ryan Clark

    Song MeaningBehind the Song:
    "The things that we are not, or the things we refuse to be, are often just as crucial to our character as those things that we aspire to be. In an age of zero boundaries and endless personal gratification, it's the things that we deny that truly set us apart. We're sold the idea that practically anything is acceptable, and we subscribe to a 'no regrets' way of life. The truth is that honest regret builds integrity. Opposing the flow of a nihilistic, self-absorbed culture is something to take pride in." - Ryan Clark
