Fixation on the darkness
That engulfs this world
Drain the life force of our people
Change
Change
Fixation on the darkness
That engulfs this world
Drain the life force of our people

Return to the womb (new life)
Lay your head to rest (mercy)
To give you a piece of mind
Lay your head to rest

Come together inside
This body is only a shell
Change
The only way we will survive
Light
Transfiguration of the soul
Of the soul
Of the mind
Fixation on the darkness
That engulfs this world
Drain the life force of our people

Return to the womb (new life)
Lay your head to rest (mercy)
To give you a piece of mind
Lay your head to rest

Tell them
They will not hold us down
It's time for change
Change
It's time for change
Change
It's time for change
They will not hold us down
They will not hold us down
It's time for change
It's time for change

    I think that this is about how all of the injustices and wrongs things that happen in the world comes from people in general not being like they are when they are kids and not caring. We need to change back to our child likes selves and not worry about it.
