We've been force-fed the trauma as reality consumes our lives.
No greater burdens than the ones we face today.
The hardest part is living in sanctity.

This life is unforgiving, and with our hearts it grows darker than these days...
Faithless, we've become, under the weight of devotion.

What will bring us hope? What will bring us home?

From birth, cast into light, reformed in the shadow of man,
memories in falsehood, though I am anew.

Salvation is wearing thin in a life filled with conformity.
I promised myself one certainty - to dwell in solitude.

I'm not ready to make a change, I'm not ready to sell myself.
I'm not ready to commend my defeat to a world far less revived.

Battling the way of the world,falling short of all aspirations, reaching my end with conviction...
And desperate for answers, I'll be sinking.
I'll be sinking in solitude while you tower in my defeat.
