lyrics

Tell me would you trade everything you own?
Tell me would you leave everyone you love?
Something for nothing.
Tell me could you fade from your family?
Tell me could you feed on their misery?
Something for nothing.

And the day that you walk away,
Will be the best day of their lives.
A living sacrifice hoping for salvation,
Free from the fear of your condemnation.
No truth from the mouth of snakes,
No hope in the heart that's plagued.
Everyday you wake you perpetuate,
Hatred breaking bonds that once were sacred.

No truth from the mouth of snakes,
No hope in the heart that's plagued.
Everyday you wake you perpetuate,
Hatred breaking bonds that once were sacred.

Burden, our burden,
Our burden lies in the hearts of weaker men.
Committing acts of violence,
Silencing the defenceless innocent.

I know the reason,
Why she hides her hair over her black eye.
I know the reason,
Why your kids pretend to be asleep when you're home at night.
I know the reason,
Why your family have to lie and hide.
I know the reason,
And you're the reason why.

And I know you needed a reason,
Defeated. You're weak and conceited.
Soon your lies will be in the open.
And I know the cycle.
Pain is your only idol. And death your own disciple.
Soon you'll be sleeping under the earth,

As you writhe among all the dirt and worms you've earned.
Just walk away and don't come back.
You aren't needed and you never were.
While you are weak,
They are strong.
And together they will overcome.
