The Charade

Album: Black Messiah (2014)
  • Crawling through a systematic maze
    And it pains to demise
    Pain in our eyes
    Strain of drownin', wading into your lies
    Degradation so loud that you can't hear the sound of our cries (doo, doo)
    All the dreamers have gone to the side of the road which we will lay on
    Inundated by media, virtual mind fucks in streams

    All we wanted was a chance to talk
    'Stead we only got outlined in chalk
    Feet have bled a million miles we've walked
    Revealing at the end of the day, the charade

    Perpetrators beware say a prayer if you dare for the believers
    With a faith at the size of a seed enough to be redeemed (doo, doo)
    Relegated to savages bound by the way of the deceivers
    So anchors be sure that you're sure we ain't no amateurs

    All we wanted was a chance to talk
    'Stead we only got outlined in chalk
    Feet have bled a million miles we've walked
    Revealing at the end of the day, the charade

    With the veil off our eyes we'll truly see
    And we'll march on
    And it really won't take too long
    And it really won't take us very long

    Revealing at the end of the day, the charade

    All we wanted was a chance to talk
    'Stead we only got outlined in chalk
    All we wanted was a chance to talk
    Revealing at the end of the day, the charade

    All we wanted was a chance to talk
