With aversion, this insertion
Came so swiftly
Cut the cord, from this day forward
We'll be drifting

No direction, no affection
Watch the soul dive
You're dissected, resurrected
Still don't know why
This illness is like a monster that is
Eating us alive

Hold on, be strong
So right, so wrong
With all of our senses
All of our defenses
Hold on, be strong

New arrival, our survival
Still not certain
What's a virtue, where do you go to
When you're hurting?

It's a weakness, it's a sickness
In the gene pool
Show no mercy, people here say
"Kill the damned fool"
This illness is like a monster that is
Eating us alive

Hold on, be strong
So right, so wrong
With all of our senses
All of our defenses
Hold on, be strong

My
Soul
Blood
Run

Don't ever let me go, no
Don't ever let me go, no
Never never let you go, no
I'll never let you go, no

Hold on, be strong
So right, so wrong
With all of our senses
All of our defenses
Hold on, be strong

    I think the song is very much about surviving in a society that condemns you, a society that is full of people that put on a fake front to make THEMSELVES feel secure (with all of our senses, all of our defenses).
