Vicious Cycle

lyrics

Tell me, is this all in vain?
Every single breath I take I know I'm approaching my last
Time is of the essence
You placed a crown upon your own head
And declared yourself king
Corrupting the common man
You painted a portrait of ruin
It was a masterpiece
You made us believe that violence and progress are one and the same
You will be exposed for what you really are
Relay the message
We can't live like this
Carry the torch as we strive for the perfect balance
I've hollowed out my chest in a desperate attempt to make sense of this
So tell me, is this all in vain?
Will we ever have the upper hand?
Bridging the gap between what we're born to believe and all the fabrications that go unseen
Can we summon the strength to resist?
Day in, day out
It's all become a vicious cycle
You will be exposed for what you really are
Constructing a right of passage for a self-proclaimed prophet
But the road ahead is desolate
So when it's all said and done
Will we summon the strength to resist?
Or is this all in vain?
Relay the message
We can't live like this
Carry the torch as we strive for the perfect balance
So when it's all said and done
We can make our presence known
Can you carry the torch?
