I see them coming
With shrouds to bury us all
Before we were born they shaped our lives
Leading us into an unmarked grave
In moments life could end
So I will speak while I can

This is my chance
My time to stand

We may fail alone but that is better
Than dying with them only to be forgotten
I for one would rather suffer now
Than leave this life without passion

This is our chance
Our time to stand

    I think this song is talking about the importance of finding who you are and being that, instead of living life passively and allowing your environmental influences to shape you into its/their mold. Never having lived out one's own unique identity is worse than never having lived in the first place.

    To me this is about corporate greed and the greed of all those in power. Powerful people who use their power to manipulate the lives of those with lesser power. It is about fighting against the corruption of powerful people. It is better to fight against them, no matter how much you suffer, instead of living the life of a slave to the rich.
