Palisades – The Reckoning lyrics

[feat. Chris Roetter of Like Moths to Flames]

[Verse 1]
I've been staring at my reflection,
I've lost all perception.
Who have I become? (become)
'Cause I don't wanna be
Another part of their machines.
It's hard to breathe,
Sucking the life out of me!
What does it mean,
When everything you see (when everything you see),
Becomes what you believe?

[Chorus]
This is the reckoning,
No, it's not what it seems,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This will be the end of me,
No, it's not what I dreamed
I'm not who I thought I'd be.

Not who I thought I'd be.

[Verse 2]
I'm so lost stuck in my transition,
And I can't get a grip on
The person I've become.

'Cause I've lost sight of me,
Force fed with words that they preach,
I've been deceived, corrupted by their greed.
Just let me be, be the change you wanna see,
Just set me free.

Just set me free! (set, me, free!)

[Chorus]
This is the reckoning,
No, it's not what it seems,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This will be the end of me,
No, it's not what I dreamed,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This is the reckoning,
(No, it's not what it seems)
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This will be the end of me,
No, it's not what I dreamed,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.

[Hook]
Do you feel like you're in control?
[Chris Roetter]
Sacrificed enough,
I found the meaning in the walls built up.
And for the first time I see clearly,
We were born to die!
But not before we're given the chance to survive.

[Bridge]
This is the reckoning,
No, it's not what it seems,
I'm not who I used to be.

[Outro]
This is the reckoning,
No, it's not what it seems,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This will be the end of me,
No, it's not what I dreamed,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This is the reckoning,
(No, it's not what it seems)
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
This will be the end of me,
No, it's not what I dreamed,
I'm not who I thought I'd be.
