Lyrics

There's a struggle coming but
To conquer first they must divide
The machines keeps humming night and day
How are we so unaware?
Why are you not afraid?

Protests are drumming
While you turn your nose
And roll your eyes
Knee-jerk reactions so engrained
Judging from an armchair

Because there is hate and there is love
And there is loss
But there is light and
There is dark than there is us

And whether this world burns
Is none of your concern
Caught up in a ticker-tape parade

I have learned to stand up
And just to walk away
Sometimes the cold hearts aren't
Worth the love or the hate
Learn to let go
Learn to walk away
Out from the shadows
I'm seduced by the light of the flame
But this time I'm here to stay

Gunpowder residue
Bright lights and turpentine
True colors shining through
As we are stripped of all exteriors

Because there is hate and there
Is love and there is loss
But there is right
And there is wrong than
There is us we're falling
Until we learn to stand up
And just to walk away
Sometimes the cold hearts aren't
Worth the love or the hate
Learn to let go
Learn to walk away
Out from the shadows
I'm seduced by the
Light of the flames
This time I'm here to stay

Feet first into the quicksand
Every day we are surrendering
Never straying from the game plan
I keep hoping you will take
My hand and stand up

The waters overflowing
The walls are breaking
But I will wait here knowing
That we can make it
And there's a light still glowing
A light I'm chasing
I've been lost before
And I have been led astray
But this time I'm here to stay
