I followed your rules
A willing fool
Branded by shame

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I bear so many scars, hit me hard
Time to change we have to rearrange
For this has gone too far, way too far

Creating new laws and living by unwritten rules
Restricting us

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I can't let go

Creating new spins on ancient creed to fit your views
Denying us

You created this world
Where honesty is not allowed
You created this world
Where ignorance is being taught

You created this world
Where I am all, you'll never be
You've been drilling these
Such falsely-based philosophies
…in me

The curtain has fallen
There's no one behind
Corrected one mistake
But I am still around

Our fight is over
My scars will leave a stain
You thought that it was all easy
But I will still remain

You created yourself
Based on nothing else but lies
You created yourself
Where all your aspiration died

You created yourself
Where I am all, you'll never be
You're deceiving me
Now I am forcing you to see
… this

The curtain has fallen
There's no one behind
Corrected one mistake
But I am still around

Our fight is over
My scars will leave a stain
You thought that it was all easy
But I will still remain

Take my hand, I'm sinking, I'm reaching out for you

Can't you see what you've done to all of us?
Torturing me has no use here anymore

I followed your rules
A willing fool
Branded by shame

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I bear so many scars, hit me hard
Time to change we have to rearrange
For this has gone too far, way too far

Creating new laws and living by unwritten rules
Restricting us

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I can't let go

Creating new spins on ancient creed to fit your views
Denying us

The curtain has fallen
There's no one behind
Corrected one mistake
But I am still around

Our fight is over
My scars will leave a stain
You thought that it was all easy
But I will still remain

Your time is over
I'm taking what's mine
You thought that you could keep me
Under your thumb and mind

Take my hand, I'm sinking, I'm reaching out for you
In my dying dream

    Life, follow your thoughts
    the waking force
    ready to shield

    My soul suffers from your hostile ways
    i bear so many scars, disregard[ed]
    time to change we have to rearrange
    for this has gone too far, far too far

    [you were] creating new laws and living by unwritten rules
    restricting us

    My soul suffers from your hostile ways
    you must let go

    [you were] creating new spins on ancient creed to fit your views
    denying us

    You live in this world
    where honesty is not allowed
    you live in this world
    where ignorance is being taught

    You created this world
    where i am all you'll ever see
    you betrayed us
    such falsely-based philosophies
    'trust in me'

    You curse has fallen
    there's no one behind
    corrected one mistake
    but i am still around

    Our fight is over
    my scars will leave a stain
    you thought that it was all easy
    but i will still remain

    You limit yourself
    based on nothing else but lies
    you limit yourself
    until all your aspirations died

    You created yourself
    where i am all you'll ever see
    you're deceiving me
    now i am forcing you to sleep...

    Your curse has faltered
    i'm taking back what's mine
    corrected one mistake
    but i am still around

    Our fight is over
    my scars will leave a stain
    i thought that it was to easy
    but i will still remain

    (to outsider) take my hand, i'm sinking, i'm reaching out for you

    Can't you see what you've done to all of us? Torturing me has no use here anymore

    I followed your rules
    a willing fool
    branded by shame

    My soul suffers from your hostile ways
    i bear so many scars, hit me hard
    time to change we have to rearrange
    for this has gone too far, way too far

    Creating new laws and living by unwritten rules
    restricting us

    My soul suffers from your hostile ways
    i can't let go

    Creating new spins on ancient creed to fit your views
    denying us

    The curtain has fallen
    there's no one behind
    corrected one mistake
    but i am still around

    Our fight is over
    my scars will leave a stain
    you thought that it was all easy
    but i will still remain

    Your time is over
    i'm taking back what's mine
    you thought that you could keep me
    under your thumb and mind

    Take my hand, i'm sinking, i'm reaching out for you
    in my dying dream

    It reminds me of communism
    It's talking about how even though she has been beaten she will always remain
    This is the same with communism, as long as there are poor people there will be a want for equality

    I think in this song they mean about a muslim girl and her father was somehow complicated and when he heard that his daughter is in a forbidden relationship with another man who is not a muslim secretly, he tried to kill his daughter and he wanted to put her under his thumb and mind and don't even letting her to know life.

    but acually i don't agree with him just a little bit of bit; (50/100)

    I don't agree with him because:

    because he threw her like a slave in her room and didn't let her to know anything about life and this thing makes her lust grow to feel safely away from her complicated father and do such bad things.

    and i dont agree with the daughter because:

    because she has her mind and if she knows anything about religion or enviroment this doesn't let her to be pregnant or in a forbidden relationship with a boyfriend.
