500 Days--'Defiance'

 

Verse;

 

Angry at the world for not seeing what I see,

how can you not see the same wreck as me?

Born and raised on the same spinning rock,

yet we have beliefs that just don't interlock

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

Our eyes see visions so far apart,

What you ignore, I take to heart

 

Verse:

 

I look around and see a disaster,

and wonder what's to come after.

While you see everything's ordinary,

I wish I could understand how that can be?

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Chorus:

 

My screamed defiance falls on deaf ears.

The damage he's doing will last for years.

Echoes of a trance is the only way

to describe your disaster play

 

Verse:

 

I've struggled to understand, but I've given up the fight,

Can't see if you're standing in eternal night

Forever divided where we used to be united,

I'm thinking long-term, your vision's short-sighted

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

You're only thinking what's in it for me,

to make yourself feel better, normal's what you see

 

Repeat Chorus:

 

END
