lyrics

No one stays themselves forever
Everyone adheres
To written regulations
Beaten down throughout the years
Children's old ambitions go
Their concrete feathers fall
Adult inhibition shows
Conversely staged through all
We have no explanation or
Defense to justify
The common condemnation of
The stars within the sky
The only people brave enough
To break and be unique
Are eating in the alleyways and
And sleeping in the streets

The world
Is all unfurled
There's nothing left to open
Theres no treasure chests or pearls
Just pain and execution caught
Inside an empty dream
The fallacies of fantasies
Are never as they seem

The rain it pours on city streets
And clouds corrupt the sky
Your dreary coalition grows
Until the day you die
The madness and the mayhem of
These repellant routines
Miracles are misconstrued
Though pretty and pristine
Ignored and shared to no one they are
Killed and thrown away
No one says a word they just
Continue on their way
Angels grace the forests and
They soar and seek to save
But cowardly we cut them down
And send them to their grave

The world
Is all unfurled
There's nothing left to open
Theres no treasure chests or pearls
Just carnage and corrosion caught
Inside an empty dream
The fallacies of fantasies
Are never as they seem

The tallest buildings seem to scrape
The ceiling of the sky
But when the fall they devastate
The ground on which they lie (And desecrate and die)
And prisoners of stark emotions
Wander through the earth
Fragile from constant stress
Of wondering their worth
And thousands upon thousands walk
Along the barren street
Only always occupy
Derision and deceit
They pray their empty promises
And sing their silent songs
Searching for some sacred place
To believe they belong

Synthetic aberrations coat
The faces of meek
Pretending to be different
At the end of every week
Chemicals consumed to show
The beauty of the brain
Are purely a preservative
Unnaturally insane

And currency is all we see
We watch it multiply
Catch it in your clothing when it's
Raining from the sky
Countless correlations between
Greed and green and sin
Masking the intentions of
Of the whispers from within

The world
Is all unfurled
There's nothing left to open
Theres no treasure chests or pearls
Just silence and seclusion caught
Inside an empty dream
The fallacies of fantasies
Are never as they seem

I said the world
Is all unfurled
There's nothing left to open
Theres no treasure chests or pearls
Just pain and execution caught
Inside an empty dream
The fallacies of fantasies
Are never ever seen
