Wake

Album: True Defiance (2012)
  • Lay your fear on the line and wake up

    Now solitude of will has held you still against that wall
    Dividing soul from self, you cannot help but to dissolve
    Back down

    [Chorus]
    Don't come crying for help when the fire surrounds you
    When desperation calls you will obey
    Don't you follow the mass to an endless grave
    You've cut that vital main, now
    Lay your fear on the line and wake up
    Lifeless years, unholy tears
    Throw your panic aside and let go
    Pain will bring to light your fears

    The gravity of death is on your breath, it dwells inside
    Hold fast to your distraction, feed ambivalence your time

    [Chorus]

    Hold your breath, retain your silence
    I don't buy your self-reliant soul
