Paradigm

Album: The Stage (2016)

  • You've been breakin down for far too long
    Far too many moons since you felt well and strong
    You see, you could say goodbye but you don't have to die
    Not ever

    Engineer the wires to your brain
    Architect a code so you won't feel the pain
    With your family by your side and vigor in your eyes forever
    Live Forever

    I'm way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals
    I shed my human side
    Farther, O' Father
    I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside?
    Final paradigm

    What's it really mean to be a man?
    Think about your answer but please understand
    While it's natural to fear, I'll make it disappear forever
    I forever

    I'm way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals
    I shed my human side
    Farther, O' Father
    I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside?
    Final paradigm

    Singular I am

    I have the question if these thoughts are mine
    To live forever but did something in me die?
    I'm clawing my skin but I can't feel it inside
    I know the agony of pain would hurt so much better

    I'm way up so far up
    Have I lost myself tonight?
    Father, O' Father
    Have you lost that boy you used to know? Writer/s: Brian Elwin Haner, Brooks Wackerman, Jonathan Lewis Seward, Matthew Charles Sanders, Zachary James Baker
