lyrics

I’m one of the lucky ones
My turmoil is internal where it can be controlled
I’m one of the lucky ones
Don’t you want to be just like me?

The message seems lost here
There’s no admission of the critical fault
Do what you want, there’s no one to stop you
But oh, how I’ve always admired that way you fall

SYSTEM FAILURE
We will rise
FATAL ERROR
We will defy
Hear this message, you are alive
No longer a slave to a world you despise

You want a piece of this moment
As you watch the towers fall on your TV screen
Here’s your invitation; let us know who you want to be
“As the crowds gathered in protest…”
The haze that blurs your morning vision
Surrounds ideals you can’t achieve
Once you let go of all control
The faded truth will be perceived

SYSTEM FAILURE
We will rise
FATAL ERROR
We will defy
Hear this message, you are alive
No longer a slave to a world you despise

Crime is a lie
Everybody gets on the wrong side
Have you ever sold a piece of yourself?
Top dollar – there is no one else

Even as I watched my second-class existence
Fade from the eyes of passers-by
I have found value inside
As the ghost that sees you beyond

Blindness is a disease, mirrors reflect the tragedy

SYSTEM FAILURE
We will rise
FATAL ERROR
We will defy
Hear this message, you are alive
No longer a slave to a world you despise

Crime is a lie
Everybody gets on the wrong side
Have you ever sold a piece of yourself?
Top dollar – there is no one else

Give a piece of your soul
Let’s lose control
And never forget where the end comes from
And never forget where the end comes from
