lyrics

We who strive towards freedom never come first
You who step forward with power never have the blame
Maybe I am the only one who can see
This torture that takes place
Make an end to misery, the sadness and the fear
So our lives won’t float away in this empty basket

Clarity is inside us all
To realize this we must sometimes fall
A forever long struggle that you bastards have created
We fight for our lives that soon will fade
Help us now before our time is up
A time bomb of malcontent, locked inside my chests

The ones with power will never be blamed
We get treated like rats, you should all be ashamed
But who will remember when our generation has past

Sometimes I look up to the stars and wonder
If there's another man starring back in to my eyes
If there's someone in the sky, why isn’t there a difference
Hard to believe in higher powers
When the powers on earth don't believe in me

I have held your hand and I’ve felt your shame
Your guidance will always lead me astray
Now I can see through the masks that hide your games
Soon you’ll see an economic change
The only thing you care about is the sale
Is this real or is this fake
Is there more beyond the veil
People suffer from hunger and thirst
But still the white will always move first

You people don’t feel any shame
I can’t understand a thing of this obscure game
You poison people with lies and deceit
You only see things subjectively
We are working ants, serving our queen
The obscenity is a hell
You don’t work for your wealth, but you still get more
A massive cash flow, through your golden door

People suffer from hunger and thirst
But how come the white always move first

Why are we afraid?

So now we pray, for tomorrow to be another day

Sometimes I look up to the stars and wonder
If there's another man starring back in to my eyes
If there's someone in the sky
Why isn’t there a difference
Hard to believe in higher powers
When the powers on earth don't believe
