lyrics

I am just a member
I am just a vote for your cause
I am just a number
Solve me as a man without resolve

Got me where you want me
I’m yours for sure

Wean me off your blinders
Left to think my thoughts are my own
On my own

Finally
A moment to myself
And I realize
I know who I am
But not what I’m living for

I need a reason that isn’t a rhyme
I need a meaning that isn’t a reason why

I’ll leave you all with a scar, a permanent mark
For when death do us part
Because it’s hard to face
Knowing we all will fade away
[Stay]

Ideology is a fallacy when what I believe doesn’t come as a package deal
There’s no borderline, in your bottom line
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then who needs scripture
With a picture’s worth, and feeling what we’re worth
We all might as well just do porn

[Got me where you want me]
[On my own]

I’ve never felt so frail
So vulnerable to a wakeless morning
I’ve never felt so afraid
That it could all just end
Without a warning
[It ends]

And I pray for you to see
I’ve been sheltered by my bliss
I can’t brace myself
It all hits all at once
And it may kill me
Leave me to Burn, I lost my fire
Running from the flames

[On my own]

Finally, finally I know

I need a reason that isn’t a rhyme
I need a meaning that isn’t a reason why
I’ll leave you all with a permanent mark

I need a reason that isn’t a rhyme
I need a meaning that isn’t a reason why
I’ll leave you all with a scar, a permanent mark
For when death do us part
Because it’s hard to face
Knowing we all will fade away

O, aimless, I aim for the rafters
Not knowing what I am after
So shameless, I’m chasing my rapture
[But what does it matter?]

And without a warning
[It ends]
