lyrics

Born into these walls built up
Around us encasing us
In ideas of right and wrong,
We're all told: NEVER QUESTION!

Concluded its better to
Follow rather than question.
You only see what's given.
Do you really see anything at all?

Admit it you can't see me.
You were doomed right from the start.
Society has shaped you
And filled THAT HALLOW SHELL.

They've made sure that you can't see
So that they can control you.
Stop thinking you're in control
Cause you're fooling yourself.

Chorus:
WE ALL try to hide the fact that we are all born blind.
EVERY step that we take is a step TOWARDS THE DARK.

We'll always do what's easy.
We will never break a sweat.
And what's easy's been proven:
NEVER ACCEPT!

Blind to all our ideas.
Blind to all our hopes and dreams.
Blind to all our different views.
In silence, we take abuse.

You are blind so use your voice.
Scream louder and make them see.
Their visions have been obscured
BY POWER AND GREED.

Existence without meaning,
We all follow the great trend.
Say we're making something new,
Yet there's nothing left.

(Chorus)

We close our hallowed eyes
To hide from us the lies
THAT WE'VE SUFFERED!

We make nothing but sorrow.
Betray our kind, forever bind
The mistakes we make to our minds.
Live in denial that we are all born blind.
