lyrics

I’ve got this view on life. It’s always got me looking between the lines
This masquerade we live, it causes pain, unnecessary strife
Deep in our souls we keep antagonizing self to break away
Yearning to deviate and find out that we have something to say

And what about these lines?
Contaminating what is mine
These lines we say
One day I hope these lines will go away

This aberration you contrive to place upon me fades away
Access to order I, consoling while conforming, I slip away
Controlled I can survive without this voice and what it has to say
This order must arrive; alone I cannot face another day

And what about these lines?
Contaminating what is mine
These lines we say
One day I hope these lines will go away

So many elements to life: a time to live, somewhere to die
Is this the best thing that you’ve got?
Are we sublime or are we not?
How many innocent will die in this relief you proselytize?
Are these the lines for which we’ve sought?
If we’re in line, who’s on top?
If we’re in line, who’s on top?

The moral as I see; as dogma settles in it strips away
And serves to sanitize all the things that we were meant to say

And what about these lines?
Contaminating what is mine
These lines we say
One day I hope these lines will go away

So many elements to life: a time to live, somewhere to die
Is this the best thing that you’ve got?
Are we divine or are we not?
How many innocent survive in this relief you proselytized?
Are these the lines in which we’re caught?
If we’re in line, then who is not?

And so it comes and passes by: a time to live, somewhere to die
Are these the lines by which we’re drawn
Are we mankind?
Can we move on?
