Drowning in shallow water
Feeding me phobia
Part of the working class
You give in
A pious, ungrateful fulfillment of life

Behold the man with clocks for eyes*
And keys for hands that you despise
That's not the way that I will choose to live

Feel me wake up, rising over
Lift this weight off of my shoulders
Pain is nothing, life moves forward
Taking control, give the order

Hold the fire in your eyes
Your freedom has yet to arrive
So you may find a better way to live

I'm missing parts of me that I cannot retrieve
They were burned away gradually
But I remain faithfully
Piling up the wood all while they stoke the fire
Climbing atop the high funeral pyre
Dazed and confused we all walk on a wire
Hoping for a better way
