Close Your Eyes – The Body lyrics

I've been shackled underneath all these lies for the last time
And I'm throwing them aside
There's too much apathy that clouds my mind
Words cannot express the sadness I'm feeling

I say,
If this is all we are I'm walking out the door
I'm walking out,
I want no part of it
There has to be something more
Hope without action can't be the end
I can say, "I love you" it's never enough

Aren't we the ones who walk the narrow road?
Aren't we the voices that come from before the throne?
And when we stand for revolution's sake, the world will know...
They'll know your name.

But this is all we are,
I'm walking out the door
I'm walking out,
I want no part of it
There has to be something more
Speaking out without action can be the end
I can say, "I love you," but that is never enough!

It's never been enough
It's never been...
This is the end of all you have become;
Open our hearts and let yourself in
This is the end of all you have become;
Open our hearts and let yourself in

And I won't stand for this
This can't be the body you spoke of,
'Cause I have forgotten how to love!
This can't be the body you spoke of,
I've forgotten how to love!
And I won't stand for this
I won't stand for this
I will not stand for this
And I won't stand for this
