We are but captives. We are deceased. We know that one day we will be free. (2x)

I've seen it again and again.
We just have to close the door and we can't ever let them in.
You got what you wanted. You got what you wanted so just go.
And now you can't make a single noise. So what do you have to lose?
You got what you wanted. Subject to the judgment of a fool.
You got what you wanted so just go.
Am I meant to follow? What is it to lead?
The tone of a steady voice or the sound of a piercing scream?

The dirt under my fingernails tells of the grave I'm digging.
And I know there's something out there that I have to see that's haunting me. (See that's haunting me)

We'll kill the parasite that lingers in our skin. The loss of appetite.
But you got what you wanted. (2x)

Am I meant to follow? What is it to lead?
The tone of a steady voice or the sound of a piercing scream?
The dirt under my fingernails tells of the grave I'm digging.
And I know there's something out there that I have to see that's haunting me. (See that's haunting me)

They'll never know, they'll never know. I'm not exactly what they wanted.
The man they thought I was, began to die.
We just have to close the door and we can't ever let them in.
You got what you wanted, now you'll find somewhere to begin.

We are but captives. We are deceased. We know that one day we will be free. (2x)

The dirt under my fingernails tells of the grave I'm digging.
And I know there's something out there that I have to see that's haunting me. (See that's haunting me (2x))

    well im really ashamed to read things off of a christain song like stuff from lobontes comment. but i look at the bigger picture, not just his.

    this song means to me that even though some of us just follow, we can still suprise someone and step up by showing ourselves or finding our voice.

    but we find our voice and step up only because we are disgusted or annoyed to the point where we practically have no other choice.

    this is just amazing... really amazing...

    Am I meant to follow? What is it to lead? The tone of a steady voice or the sound of a piercing scream? (To me here he is questioning to just follow in Jesus footsteps or to lead as in telling people about Christ like Jesus did, also he is saying should i be just telling people as in a steady voice or should he be screaming in a more passionate attempt to tell people of Jesus, and let them know his sweetness) Also We are but captives. We are deceased. We know that one day we will be free. (To me here he is saying Christians are stuck on earth be9ing captives to the sinful human life and knowing in there minds that one day that day will come for them to be set free to come home as in dieing and going to heaven)
