Parkway Drive – Unrest lyrics

I've walked these streets a thousand times
Still this world never seemed colder
Compromised a thousand times
To the will of malicious minds
Reality never hit so fucking hard
Crushed by endless desperation, endless surrender
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
Is this what I have become?
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
What the fuck have I become?

Security: Illusion for the weak
Refuge, Sought in routine
Another gear in their fucking machine
See, you can win the rat race
But your still nothing but a fucking rat
So seek that crown
Cause in this kingdom of fools, true ignorance reigns supreme

I see this city for what it is
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
A monument to the depths of human misery
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
Retrace the steps
Retrace the steps
Retrace the steps
Retrace the steps

What have we become?
