I've tried to find reconciliation behind the walls of those whose hatred burns.
For I find it easier to reach someone who still feels,
Than to make amends with passionless apathy.
Where all lines are the same a portrait cannot be made.

I need to burn inside. I need to know that you are alive.

I need to know that feelings of discontent are stronger
Than indifference for those too weak to stand.

Like a colorless sky over a sea of nothingness,
Hatred faces it's enemies while apathy strikes furtively.

I need to burn inside. I need to know that you are alive.

I need to know that feelings of discontent are stronger
Than indifference for those too weak to stand.
I need to know that feelings of discontent are stronger
Than indifference for those too weak to stand...

Until our anger burns against injustice, we will create
The faceless by dismissing those forced to concede.

Many of us have turned off the light outside, erasing what exists beyond our front door.
And for you I find it harder to reach common ground than my most glaring opposition.
But what about those whove lost the luxury of choice?
... striving for identity, buried by our lack of interest, souls marked as mere history.
How much grievance will it take to awaken us?

I need to know that feelings of discontent are stronger
Than indifference for those too weak to stand.
I need to know that feelings of discontent are stronger
Than indifference for those too weak to stand...

How much grievance will it take to awaken us from the comfort of our homes?
... the comfort of our oversized graves.

I've tried to find reconciliation... I've tried to find reconciliation...

    It makes sense of all the anger and hate that people who have been hurt hold against the whole world. Without peace within ourselves, how can we ever face the injustices of the world not just us alone, but everyone.

    Everyone is always afraid to stand up for themselves, because they stand alone. And everyone else is afraid for the same reason. It keeps everyone submissive, while the parasites of our world feed off of this advantage..

    That goes deep my friend ... Deep
    relationships @ first ... Then the injustices of the world's indifference ... Then, back to relationships for me
