I see now... I see through the veil of expectation.
I see now... I see that conformity is betrayal.

Betrayal of those who are forgotten, yet vision alone furthers our blame.
Unless followed by transformation, it is pointless to be given sight.
Without the hope of our reaction, we overlook the purpose of our eyes.

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light.
(Blinding of false light) Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny.
In weakness we are freed...

I see now... I see that conformity is betrayal.

With empty eyes I looked ahead (ahead), with clarity I now look back...

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light
(Blinding of false light). Now is our chance (our chance) to breathe without... without tyranny.
In weakness we are freed... Yeah...

I admit my failure. Opacity has dulled my senses.
Conformity (conformity) controlled by lifeless vices. Oh... Yeah...
Covetousness (covetousness) disguised as ambition.
But now it ends... But now it ends... But now it ends...
But now it ends, not with defeat but determination... We are freed... Yeah...

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny,
Released from the blinding of false (false) light (light).
Now is our chance... Now is... our chance... In weakness we are freed...

    Conforming to the world and the things that the "media" or majority tells us is normal is betraying what god has created us for. The song also talks about how knowledge of christ is nothing without transformation. Christ gives us true freedom and victory through him. Awesome song!

    It means that we are blinded by the religions, cultures, and ideas of other people and by other people themselves because we just want to conform to what they believe in instead of having free will because we are afraid of standing out. We don't see things how god sees things and wants us to see things, we see things how we want to see things and how others want to see things, so we truely overlook the purpose of our eyes. We bretray god by conforming to the tyranny of the world. We need to live without it because it blinds us, so we must have a determination to change ourselves and the world, or we will be defeated.

    Lucifer is a false light and wanted god's power. Christians can be consider a false light when they don't follow teachings and misuse scripture for their own personal gain.
