Lyrics

Weighted all the evidence and passed it on
Turned around and left it sight unseen
There was no chance, the chains held way too strong
To free the restrictions of your own beliefs

Watch the old ones
Fixed in their convictions
Steadfast in their stories
Enraptured by their glory

And at the end that's all you've got
Don't know what you are, just what you're not
Until the story's over

You are so delicate but bulletproof
A little fiction goes a long, long way
You are the first, the last, and the walking truth
The black and white when everything is gray

Watch the old ones
Fixed in their convictions
Steadfast in their stories
Enraptured by their glory

And at the end that's all you've got
Don't know what you are, just what you're not
Until the story's over

Now we're shouting but the words aren't taking hold
We're living by the rules we're fucking told
And we are just a bark without a bite
And we have chosen darkness to light

Wait just a second, it's your last chance to accept it
You thought you changed the program, but it's just like you left it
You stood against each other and the best got the best of you
You had your time and you let it die

The joke's always been on you
You let it die, you let it
The joke's always been on you
You let it die, you let it

The joke's always been on you
You let it die, you let it
The joke's always been on you
You let it die, you let it
