about

Help me detach myself
from this unending chain
I’m shackled tightly down
I need to step outside
Into the pouring rain
Make peace with what I’ve become
A part of a process
Circle of life
Just a spoke in the never ending wheel
Just maybe this time
Maybe I could make a choice to tear it all apart

We are all to blame
Don’t point the finger, look the other way
We are one
And If we don’t make a change
It’s destruction to all
In perpetual motion we fall
Spiraling, Spiraling
This machine will burn us all

If I lose the fight
when I turn away
Will I have the option to leave this role?
Like a child caught
in a grown up game
will I choose to do what I am told?
Will I break out
And take steps to remove all the locks and crack the code?
The revolution is coming
this machine is getting old.

In taking a chance just like never before
You can see the signs, high over the fray
Darkness around swept away by the light of day.


(Quiet Chorus)
We are all to blame
Don’t point the finger, don’t look the other way
We are one
And If we don’t make a change
It’s destruction to all
In perpetual motion we fall
Spiraling, Spiraling
This machine will burn us all

We are all to blame
Don’t point the finger, look the other way
We are one
And If we don’t make a change
It’s destruction to all
In perpetual motion we fall
Spiraling, Spiraling
This machine will burn us all
