lyrics

What was the price of your dreams?
Was it comfort, was it safety?
Or something in between
How does it feel
When the person that you seek
Is a thousand miles away
From where you want to be

Did you grow up too fast
Was the meaning you find in your life
Forced on you in the past
Our standards, our beliefs
Our concepts of self
Defined by others for us
Detrimental to our health

Let's take it back
Those dreams when we were young
And fell under attack
If we're authors of substance
Definers of the truth
Then anything is possible
The choice is up to you

In a world that sold out
Before the cards were even dealt
I'm fighting to define my own meaning
To create my own existence for myself

And every day they'll shove their definitions
In your face
Standards of beauty, moral conduct
Work as if they're all the same
And it's time to rise above
The unfortunate lot of those
Who long ago gave up

This human tragedy that unfolds every day
The pain, the isolation
Slowly exist just to escape
But I won't turn my back
I'll walk straight ahead
This mind's still got some weapons
And these dreams aren't fucking dead

In a world that doesn't care
In a society plagued by ignorance and doubt
I'm fighting to define my own meaning
To create my own existence for myself

My reason to exist
Is leaving this world
A better place
Than when I found it

You are your actions
You are the catalyst
You are that change
Exemplified in yourself

Prepare for war

It never ends
This war for a better life
Just clench your fists
And fight until you die

It never ends
This war for a better life
Sharpen your mind
And fight until you die
