lyrics

A WEAK DEFENSE:

Lost in a place without focus
Failing to find a narrow path
Is there more than unending dissonance?

When you’re caught in your contradictions
And all excuses have long since past
Scream your protest with self-serving devotion…

Just wake up

Defending all that is backward,
When will you realize
There is truth deeper than reason?
What will it take for you to wake up?

Calling out to all who will listen
Will you not lend an ear?
Who’s to blame when your shallow life falls apart?

Settling for vain substitution
Embracing all the fading lights
Placating to everything but what’s real

Just wake up

Defending all that is backward,
When will you realize
There is truth deeper than reason?
What will it take…?

When did right become so wrong?
When did you cease to care?
Will you resolve to remain silent -
As you look away?

Just don’t look away…

Defending all that is backward,
When will you realize
There is truth deeper than reason?
What will it take?

Defending all that is backward,
When will you realize
There is truth beyond your perception?
What will it take?

…for you to wake up?
…you to wake up?
…you to wake up?
…you to wake up?
