lyrics

We accept that we cannot
Change the fate to avoid it all
We will not deviate from
A will brought into despair

The unexpected and the unpredicted
As an elemental structure of self control
An old mechanism of subjective value
To bring all the insight
Into the human condition

Reflective mind, built on emphatic judgments
In a clockwork reality
A process of abstraction through visual distortion
Of choices made in a restless dream

Formulating constructs within the relativities
Of deep human consciousness

We recognize
The sacrifice
We need to turn the odds

Words may be dissonant
Wilder
And truth falls with them
Fails to be wield

Slowly the pale grey smoke lifts in
Layers as thin shadows of one's fault
Torn and broken

Aware of the dangers of oversimplifying
Its existence and complex structure,
We separate

Waving sights of one's fear
To mark a release
To find a place to set a dreamwork
A stillborn cause embraced
In poems of extended and cohesive
Metaphors

We empathize
The will to rise
Resting our faith in all

This will to rise
Testing our faith
Open your eyes
To human grace
Until the day
We realize
There is no fate
There is no light
And still we breathe
And still we fight
Another day
Another try
