lyrics

Clenching my fists, I can hear the words ringing through my head like an echo (constant, vigilant...)
Linking the suppression to my fear, like a motive (predetermined)
Why do I continue to be this, like a mannequin? (frozen, lifeless...)
That wicked eye watching over all

Like a hammer to my skull
Swinging 'round to catch me off-guard again
The words echo through my head
Is this the direction we've chosen?

As the blood rushes down from my head
I know this is when it gets ugly
My position, a result of our choices
Greeted by remorse and a chorus of voices

Looking for a turning point, waiting for a way around this
The powers-that-be rejoice as my voice is sold to the terms of service

So this is what we've been raised to believe?
Taunted by ideals for which I grieve
United we now stand in one resounding final scream
For the death of the american dream... Bow your heads.

My true spirit, crying out for freedom
Ignite the flames and watch me run to greet them
The blood of martyrs rains upon the living
Only death can bring the new beginning.

Bow your heads.
