Deep within the hive we're crawling Killing curiosities Swarming in the flames we're drawn to Blind to everything we see We've become the apparitions Haunting all of your decisions The worms in your head Underneath your bed Lost in a digital religion Underneath our graves we're turning Buried animosities Rotting in the holes they've dug us Death of creativity We've become the apparitions Haunting all of your decisions The worms in your head Underneath your bed Lost in a digital religion We've become the apparitions Haunting all of your decisions The worms in your head Underneath your bed Lost in a digital religion

Told to grind it out Down on your hands and knees You can't walk out Hear your internal screams Your broken dreams You step into the night To find your shadows cast from light inside you Daylight breaks we fake our way Mediocre fools we stay Same mundane routine to do We're pushing through without a clue Inside our lives Is it real If we never see the Inside our minds Is it real If we never see the Time is running out Reality from dreams Can't figure out It's harder than it seems We're not machines You look into the light To find your shadow is cast right beside you Moonlight wakes we play with fate Foreshadowed dreams that we create True breakthrough, they've locked the door We're searching for so much more Inside our lives Is it real if we never see the Inside our minds Is it real if we never see the Dream inside, truth defines The light from all the shadows Dream inside, truth and lies The light shines through the shadows The world has caught on fire We're burned by our desires This isn't how it should be Will we ever see

Echo Chamber 04:31
According to your status quo You see us as you're looking down Everyone that you know Gives you praise for your crooked crown Lies you told No one knows You won't be alone, surrounded by echoes They say what you want to hear There is no rejection when no one knows Living your deepest fear Your lies are the only proof Your reality, too much to wager You're dying to tell the truth When you're trapped in the echo chamber Going down with the flow But we're searching for higher ground The sheep will never know That their shepherd would let them drown Lies you sold No one knows You won't be alone, surrounded by echoes They say what you want to hear There is no rejection when no one knows Living your deepest fear Your lies are the only proof Your reality, too much to wager Your dying to tell the truth When you're trapped in the echo chamber Can't get out you're trapped in the echo chamber

Everyday they find a way Sterilizing culture Every night leads us astray Bones picked clean by vultures Riddles from another time I embrace their meaning Echoing inside my mind As the world is bleeding We are breaking What's left undone Into nothing Your crooked kingdom Whisper doubt into my ears I will never hear you Frightened by your darkest fears The sleepers will betray you Glorify the things we hate Peel back your broken soul In the tower of deceit Programmed only to control We are breaking What's left undone Into nothing Your crooked kingdom

Step right up now sit back down You got enough to deal with now You gotta wait until Both get off the ground It's overrated as a weapon It will tear you down When you can't get out you've lost control When you can't get out then you'll know You can't climb your way out from this hole When you can't get out on your own You've gone too deep Lost in a dream Too deep Lost in a dream You've gone too Small distractions pull you in You cannot stop yourself from digging in But the dirt beneath you's caving in Before you know it you'll fall further in When you can't get out you've lost control When you can't get out then you'll know You can't climb your way out from this hole When you can't get out on your own You've gone too deep Lost in a dream Too deep Lost in a dream You've gone too One wrong step your falling down How long before you hit the ground Is all you think about While you scream out loud We're at the bottom of the countdown What happens now When you can't get out you've lost control When you can't get out then you'll know You better pray that you'll be saved one day When you can't get out on your own You've gone too deep Lost in a dream Too deep Lost in a dream You've gone too

You live your life unaware of What's happened To you You can't escape from the cage you're in Chained down like A slave to your pain You're cruel by design Programmed to hate You can't change your fate, No You're cruel by design No love in your heart Ignoring the signs as your world falls apart Deceive, believe, you make us bleed for you Now your drowning in your empty hell I see the way that you, think the world is yours You only end up lying to yourself You can't see the big picture Right in front Of you Your tunnel vision won't see The truth Falling down The hole you've dug yourself You're cruel by design Programmed to hate You can't change your fate, No You're cruel by design No love in your heart Ignoring the signs as your world falls apart Deceive, believe, you make us bleed for you Now your burning in your empty hell I see the way that you, think the world is yours You only end up lying to yourself You live your life unaware of What's happened To you You can't escape from the cage you're in Chained down like A slave to your pain You're cruel by design Programmed to hate You can't change your fate, No You're cruel by design No love in your heart Ignoring the signs as your world falls apart Deceive, believe, you make us bleed for you Now your burning in your empty hell I see the way that you, think the world is yours You only end up lying to yourself

Now it follows me Chasing me through the moonlit night And it's haunting me Beyond what is wrong or right Always taunting me Taking away what matters most Then it swallows me Fading away like a ghost Follow what's inside your heart Free yourself and find your part Break out of the chains that bind you The truth is hidden deep inside you We're all just characters Acting on a stage In our own world, behind the curtain We see the roles we play Now it calls for me Pulling me closer to my grave It has chosen me This creature you cannot save And it's broken me I'm living in a bad dream Burden falls on me Wishing things aren't what they seem Follow what's inside your heart Free yourself and find your part Break out of the chains that bind you The truth hidden deep inside you We're all just characters Acting on a stage In our own world, behind the curtain We changed the roles we play

Into the nightfall, darkest moment of all I will light the way forward I decide to rise above what lies before me Ashes of destiny Burning within, darkness that came before Light the fire and transform Burning within, freedom is now restored Through the fire I'm reborn Within a nightmare, the omen of despair I will find the paths unfound I decide to light the vital spark inside me Ashes of tragedy I decide to rise above what lies before me Ashes of destiny Burning within, darkness that came before Light the fire and transform Burning within, freedom is now restored Through the fire I'm reborn
