Speak out –
Without a doubt,
You’re crumbling.
The pain is numbing you.

Tie your tongue,
Force your words
Inside your lungs
Before it gets worse.

You are just a simple child,
Self-sufficient, running wild.
Revenge will never ease your pain;
That’s why emotions seize you again.

Open your damn eyes
And see the truth –
Your obvious naivety
Is ruling over you.

Nonsense
Won’t save you
Nonsense
Will enslave you
Nonsense
Won’t give you power
Nonsense
Crumbling cardboard tower

What was once seen as redemption
What was once imagined as peace
Has torn down your safe haven
And now the revolution won’t cease.

Guns afire
Bombs aglow
The rocket’s red glare urges you to let go

You lost your fight
Before it started
Just walk away
A silent martyr

You lost your fight
Before it started
Just walk away
A silent martyr.
