We Are The Involuntary

Album: Lost in the Sound of Separation (2008)

  • Just drifting along with the world
    Every motion is paranoid and paralyzing
    Give it up
    Or give 'em hope
    Let us all survive the wake

    We, we're a race, a human race
    Under the glass behind it all
    Watch us crawl, watch us crawl so fearfully
    I might be wrong after all, I might be wrong
    But weren't we just so delicate yesterday

    Sit back and think about it
    Sleep it off, sleep on it
    Come to, and make your motions
    Sit back and think about it
    Sleep it off, sleep on it
    Come to, and make your motions

    Listen up
    Listen up
    Listen up
    There's a calling ahead
    A desperation, a falling of man
    We are all lost in the sound
    Lost in the sound
    Lost in the sound of separation

    Hands in the air and love at our sides
    There's gotta be something bigger
    With the beating in our throats
    And the tremble in our grip, this can't be it

    I'll come up, I'll come up for peace
    I'll come down, I'll come down for truth
    I'll give in, I'll give up for you
    I'll come up, I'll come up for peace
    I'll come down, I'll come down for truth
    I'll give in, I'll give up for you
    I'll give up, I'll give up, I'll give up, I'll give up

    The floors are shaking
    And we've lost our step
    Oh Lord, have mercy
    Have mercy on us all
    The floors are shaking
    And we've lost our step
    Oh Lord, have mercy
    Have mercy on us all
    Oh Writer/s: Aaron Gillespie, Christopher Dudley, Grant Brandell, James Smith, Timothy Mctague, William Spencer Chamberlain
