Ethereal – Mandatory Pilgrim lyrics

Study scriptures frantically
Inhaling knowledge like the air your breathe
Forced to reach enlightenment
Beyond the kind that most of us will never see

Starting with a mind as white as snow
Getting stained by the things dictated to know
Get rich or try dying
As we are expected

Do we really have a voice
Do we really have a choice

Read about the outside world
Imagine how these stories unfold
I know too much now
So I must go

Put everything in the hands
Of something I don't know
Will it lead me to eternity
Or take me to a new low

Do they really hear our voice
Are we ever left a choice

As I whisper and cast a pitying smile
Sitting on the sideline
And watch these humans for a while

Subjected to reality so bleak
Mindless following
Is only for the weak

Unprecedented arrogance
Oblivious to consequence

I have seen how self-destruction
Has caused numerous kingdoms to fall

Spiritual indifference
Try to find deliverance
I will fight the way
In which you made me

Until the light takes me
Until the light takes me

Put everything in the hands
Of something I don't know
Will it lead me to eternity
Or take me to a new low

A journey through this forceful world
We are the pilgrims, the mandatory pilgrims
