I felt the sting It was a burning sensation that I couldn’t ignore I tried to scream But I was muted by the shock of being caught off guard It left me weak And the pain was unbearable I couldn’t endure it It cut me deep It caught me by surprise and then it sent me to the floor And I never thought I’d be the victim But I never saw it coming I never wanted this I thought that you would be above it
2.
Born into this world of hate And I’ve tried to cope but I could not relate I thought if I kept to myself I could avoid all conflict But it seems I’m always forced Forced to struggle Forced to fight just to maintain my peace of mind I’m one against many Against the wall and I’ve got no choice but to fight Just to protect myself Because I’ve no choice left No one to help me I’m on my own No one to back me I stand alone So much to lose Nothing to gain

Why am I biding time Waiting for you to decide If I'm a worthy or a worthless being Hoping to be a part of your life Don't talk to me about sacrifice Because I opened my heart And I let you inside Don't say I'm unworthy Because I've paid the price I let myself go And I gave you my life And now I'm not what I was I lost everything Became much less than human I've sealed my fate Handed you the rope Gave you control Left myself open And gave up my soul

The king is dead And we’ve come to reclaim what was ours Regain control of the lives we lead before he instilled Fear in the masses of the lost and misguided who looked to him for help And we must not live scared He has been dethroned He won’t rise again There won’t be a rebirth He will not return He has been dethroned He won’t rise again Left in our wake Remains of monuments reduced to sand Of tyrants who once ruled this land with fear They have been removed, cast out And they won’t rise again There won’t be a rebirth He will not return He has been dethroned He won’t rise again

Work, eat, sleep Repeat the process Work, eat, sleep There’s no way out… …of this hell I’ve condemned myself to I’m in to deep To claw my way out I want this too end If there’s another way I hope to find it soon
6.
No more choices Don’t want redemption Kneeling and begging don’t need those options I will not live in fear of the end of the world I live in torment My hell is here No more choices Don’t want forgiveness Bowing and praying don’t need those options I won’t follow a concept that’s been twisted and distorted To frighten the masses and keep them in line I won’t live a life that’s been governed by lies Bowing and praying for the rest of my life Given my situation I could never feel it to be real And if I’m offered salvation I’ll turn and choose my own path
