  • Cut up the planet for an illusion
    Home isn't far from where the resource is
    Fusing distant lands

    A sign of life is steadily ending
    Call out so desperate for a way
    The cries are readily sending
    They beg of night to release the day
    They're calling out for a better way
    (Cut up the planet for an illusion)

    Coldest nights sometimes give way to brightest skies of blue
    Moving onward carrying the life that's in plain view
    And we will carry with a thriving few

    Corrupt the planet for evolution
    Though what we see is not the fault of man
    Only leaps and strides

    Cut up the planet for an illusion
    Home isn't far from where the resource is
    Hoping for a better way

    Conjure a way to the heavens and suddenly
    We suddenly ask ourselves if this light is worth the lie
    Conjure a way to the heavens and suddenly
    We suddenly ask ourselves if this light is worth the lie

    Coldest nights sometimes give way to brightest skies of blue
    Moving onward carrying the life that's in plain view (plain view)
    And we will carry with a thriving few

    Corrupt the planet for evolution
    Though what we see is not the fault of man
    Isn't far from where the resource is

    Stripped of ground by the hands of those who have built
    A life surrounding causing quarantine
    Reach for skies
    Reach for a belief that this life equals something

    Conjure a way to the heavens and suddenly
    We suddenly ask ourselves if this light is worth the lie
    Conjure a way to the heavens and suddenly
    We suddenly ask ourselves if this light is worth the lie Writer/s: ADAM GETGOOD, JAKE BOWEN, MARK HULETT HOLCOMB, MATTHEW HALPERN, MISHA MANSOOR, SPENCER SOTELO
