The Strength To Go On

Welcome home

While away

They have tampered with the locks

And your things they rearranged

 

"We propose a better way"

Said the note they left behind

In their wake of disarray

You fell in place

 

Don't fall asleep

They'll find us here

I know a place to disappear

As a voice proclaimed

 

What we are is the sum of 1000 lies

What we know is almost nothing at all

But we are what we are till the day we die

Or till we don't have the strength to go on

Till we don't have the strength to go on

 

Let us cry

Let us be

Let us open up our hearts

Without fear of anything

 

Faith alone

Is all we need

To traverse this burning bridge

Now before it gets too late

You claim "it's fine"

 

But the heart reveals

What smiles betray

Your sad sad eyes gave you away

And don't you know

 

What we are is the sum of 1000 lies

What we know is almost nothing at all

But we are what we are till the day we die

Or till we don't have the strength to go on

Till we don't have the strength to go on

 

Our shoulders bear an awful weight

But still we trudge on just the same

Our colors run then leave a stain

They blacken our once honest name

But how can we argue, tell me

Over the fury and the fire

How many times can we tell you that we

Are not like you, we see right through

Your poor disguise that fails to fool

The wary eye that's trained on you

 

What we are is the sum of 1000 lies

What we know is almost nothing at all

But we are what we are till the day we die

Or till we don't have the strength to go on

Till we don't have the strength to go on

 

What we are is the sum of 1000 lies

What we know is almost nothing at all

But we are what we are till the day we die

Or till we don't have the strength to go on

Till we don't have the strength to go on

Yeah we don't have the strength to go on
