LYRICS

This is your life
Worthless denial across your face
Control feeble minds, then destroy our race
Helpless die for you in vain
Devour all our pride, lead us to disgrace
Wake up nation, see the reason
Why we’ve become hate’s own victim

If the answer is so clear
Then why are we so blind?
Escape from ourselves and leave it all behind

Thoughtless trust into the lies
Resent what you’re told, see the truth inside
Senseless accusations rise
Divide ourselves from what they call divine
This is your life (don’t be so blind)
Wake up nation, see the reason
Why we’ve become hate’s own victim

If the answer is so clear
Then why are we so blind?
Escape from ourselves
And leave it all behind (x2)

Take a look at what you believe in
Take a chance and follow my reason
Now we all unite in unison
I can’t be stopped

If the answer is so clear
Then why are we so blind?
Escape from ourselves
And leave it all behind (x2)

Escape from ourselves and leave it all behind
