  • I've seen the blood
    I've seen the broken
    The lost and the sights unseen
    I want a flood
    I want an ocean
    To wash my confusion clean

    I can't resolve this empty story
    I can't repair the damage done

    We are the fortunate ones
    Who've never faced oppression's gun
    We are the fortunate ones
    Imitations of rebellion

    We act it out
    We wear the colors
    Defined by the things we own
    We're not without
    We're like each other
    Pretending we're here alone

    And far away, they burn their buildings
    Right in the face of the damage done

    We are the fortunate ones
    Who've never faced oppression's gun
    We are the fortunate ones
    Imitations of rebellion (Rebellion, rebellion)

    Rebellion, rebellion
    We lost before the start
    Rebellion, rebellion
    One by one we fall apart
    We fell apart, we fell apart, we fell apart

    We are the fortunate ones
    Who've never faced oppression's gun
    We are the fortunate ones
    Imitations of imitations of
    We are the fortunate ones
    Who've never faced oppression's gun
    We are the fortunate ones
    Imitations of rebellion (Rebellion, rebellion, rebellion) Writer/s: Brad Delson, Chester Bennington, Dave Farrell, Joe Hahn, Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon
