I am sick I'm so sick of hearing the same old story We're fed lies on the screen on the page 'til we're old fat and boring I won't take part in submission of the heart Cut the chord you'll realize Cut the chord see what you find A profound respect for life Cut the chord A profound respect for life Cut the chord you'll realize Cut the chord see what you find Cut the chord and you will find a profound respect for life

I fail to see a reason why in this day and time we're forced to talk about this Following twisted lies, religious genocide, it's fundamentalism No spirituality, this is the death of me Why can't you see? What book are you reading, that taught you to hate this strong? "Don't give into the lies, just open up your eyes, it's written plain and simple" I think you missed the point all along Truth is not truth Words are twisted, eyes are shifted, perspective You get to choose Only you decide what's right for you I'll say it loud you won't forget Don't preach your fine print to me Justifying your hate with the cross It's sickening the souls your crusades cost I'm no further along in my search for truth I just want you to know that there is no King behind you Tolerance isn't hate Haven't you ever heard of a thing called grace? I'll say it loud you're such a bigot I'll say it loud you'll never forget

When I was younger all I had was a dream I had my sights set on the top The forces of truth behind me As I grew older truth quenched my thirst But it's taken the dream and now I'm left with a curse Is this really humanities goal? Replace the life of our bodies With the promise of a clean soul Turning Earth into our enemy Is just a sorry excuse for not seeing the beauty I won't stand quietly No obligations to fill Finally hear the words I've kept inside me I stand with humanity To end the timeless lie That the earth is your enemy I'm so angry With the way that the world has treated such a beautiful story It's all wrong Stand with me Let the monuments fall And rebuild a new age Rage Fills me Rage fills me now

Every single time I try and explain my thoughts to you You read between the lines searching for a meaning true You never realize the answers aren't down in ink I see through the lies and now my brains begun to think I know nothing, aware of everything You can't stop me now I've taken the time to see and question everything The more and more I see the more I think I know nothing The realization is key to understanding life around you There is no enemy or evil force trying to control you I know nothing, aware of everything You can't stop me now Admit you know nothing, become aware of everything I know nothing Aware of everything

Have you taken the time to look into the depths of your own mind Understanding where your belief lies Have you taken it in with your own eyes Or do you Keep walking the path laid out Never understanding the pain Never understanding the doubt Are you so afraid of what you'll find Waiting inside your human mind I can't stand to see this wasting away The herds been led astray It is time for Awakening They're lying to you No one knows the miracle behind the existence of human life You've been programed to hate what they have created You've been programed to ignore the beauty of creation Awakening, it's happening Just open your eyes you'll be amazed at what you see Awakening

This is a call to arms It's time we all took part and look within our hearts And question everything we think we know It's time to realize that this is how we all can grow For years I've struggled, for years I've raged Because everywhere I look I'm faced With the reality that everything around me is never what it seems Everyone is lying People are dying We all hold hatred and justify it I don't understand how this can all continue on There is a new age coming Where humanity can finally live free To walk in faith with each other Without being so caught up in idolistic beliefs Brothers and sisters, we're all in this together It's time to change our ways The old ways of human thinking are slowly sinking Questioners rise and let the new take hold This is the path of the brave and the bold This is a call to arms It's time we all took part and look within our hearts And question everything we think we know It's time to realize that this is how we all can grow Prepare for the new age
