lyrics

Is it really worth starting a war
over rituals from before you were born?
You must've missed some of the movies that I watched
as a kid too young to understand the plots
But what I took away was
A fear of illusions
and falling into patterns
you don't want to get stuck in a battle
that has nothing to do with you
And if you think we're failing now
wait until the bombs are bursting here

We spent centuries searching for a cure
to not knowing exactly what will occur
We've shared the wrong books and twisted our history
it's in favor of the one whose reading
But what I took away was
People are trying
to find a connection
We just have to hope that there's more of us
who won't accept the status quo
And if you want a barricade
wait until the bombs are bursting here

The phone rings every weekend
and they try to convince you to sign up
forget your dreams you work for us now
You were born this way you die for us now

We're not gonna save you
we're gonna save ourselves

We pledge our allegiance
to something that's not so misleading
and if we don't find it we'll create it
