Song Meaning
Verse 1
Thou shalt not
Kill your fathers, destroy another life
Question everything we clung to for years
Live forever, design a better death
Confuse a liar with a savior from fear
Create a myth and separate the chosen ones
Adolescent independence, dominion
I only wanna believe in fuckin' anything
But now my conscience is contradicting everything
Verse 2
The ending's the same, the world will not change
The answer is clear?
Verse 3
Tell your mothers they have no sons or daughters
Blame yourselves because your children are mine
We are orphans, but we are not forgotten
And we will find a way to save us this time
We can run, but we are tired of running
We're dropping seconds in a glass 'til we die
We only wanna believe in fuckin' everything
But we're alive and we're not accepting anything
Verse 4
The ending's the same / the world will not change
The answer is clear? annihilation
Verse 5
I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm stronger better
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm stronger better more
Verse 6
We have to save ourselves
Verse 7
I will never become another piece
Inside the paralytic construct I hate
Live forever? well, I would rather die
At least I'd know I wasn't theirs to create
This is yours, but you had better choose
Before they take away your right to decide
I guess I'll never believe in fuckin' anything
But my solace is I can handle everything
Verse 8
The ending's the same / the world will not change
The answer is clear? obliteration
Verse 9
I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm stronger better
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm stronger better
I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm stronger better
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm stronger better
More
Verse 10
We have to save ourselves
