We are nothing, they own our lives
Just a statue of a stain in time
Spinning in circles got left behind

We were all warned this would happen
But the words just rang in our ears

Machines built by machines built by machines

We can only hide for so long
Before they harvest us for the souls that we have left.

I swear we cannot wake up from this Hell that we live in
But when the sun finally hits our face
We see that were were only reflections of reflections left by our predecessors
Dragged through the mud
(We can't wake up)
Chained by the ankle
There is no more running, there is no more escaping
If only God could lay His hands down on this barren land and wake us up
Cause we are the lost, we are the helpless, we are the forgotten ones
We are the lost and we are the abandoned

I swear it's worth saving us
We pray for the sun to dry us up
I need a clearer head to see what we are worth
There's still life down here left to revolt
Oh I know what it looks like from there
A loss of control to this place and we're set to extinct

Revolt
We stood by defeat for so long

We've been under your control
We will not be a part of your disease
