lyrics

Exhaustion overtakes me, the truth is snapping at my heels
What do I turn to, now that there's nothing left?
All that I wanted and worked for has been torn away
By unseen forces... No choice left but to pay
The price for freedom... left undefined
But if you bleed enough, you might just find
Yourself among the chosen, the army of the broken
Born and bred to burn, you tremble as you learn
The cost of freedom... abandoning the chance
At elevation that lies within no nation

You thought you'd built a home and found true love to call your own
But now you see the light of your delusion
And redemption will not follow
Reprieve is not meant for the shallow

As I sit here all alone, forlorn and shaken from my throne
How bright it burns, this fading star
How could we have made it this far?
Scarring ourselves so blindly, but now I see
This dream dies with me... and so I die.

Well america, you've done it. You've started the race and you've won it... the race to the grave, to the end of our days, to certain destruction!
You thought it was all foretold, that our future was laid in gold, no, more like an inherited self-fulfilling prophecy of failure!
You rob the land of her youth, you breed the absence of truth
You had a gift in your hand that most men alive would've killed for!!
Another lesson unlearned? Or has our final page turned?
How could one who turns away from such beauty and truth deserve more than nothing?!!
This dream dies today, and it dies with me.
