Pro-pain – Substance lyrics

Beyond recognition - We'll survive

Cause were down with the people

And that keeps us alive

It's mind over matter - and the beat goes on

Respect one another for now and when I'm gone

No need to deceive - we'd rather be real

You needn't believe us if that's how you feel
I've given the best of the realist in me

In waiting for something or someone to see

What we're made of

False premonition to cast a doubt
But there's always something

That we should live without
A shock to the system - cross the line

State your opinions and open up the mind

No promise to take time to notice you're here
You're wasting away - year afer year

A subtle persistence and time is the key

In waiting for something or someone to see
What we're made of
