about

This song is about the social and educational systems that teach us to be average, to be no one. We are taught to ostracise the creative arts and to pursue mediocrity because it's 'safe'. Yet, we are surrounded by the brilliance of creativity that is taken for granted and we must work harder than anyone else to achieve our dreams. If you truly love your work then you'll never work a day in your life.

lyrics

(Verse 1)
Shaping our youth into the model citizen
Potential wiped away
Prison
Of the mind and creativity
Burning
All the thoughts make me feel free

We are told to put the target low
mediocrity
Suffer
In a life with a clear end, smell the
Sulphur
Of the hell they made you be in

(Pre-Chorus)
But what will it take to make them see?
(We've got to make them see)
That we must teach them they can be free
(That we can be free)
It was made by those who freed their mind
So free your MIND

(Chorus)
I can’t deny who I am
Soon the whole world will see
Fall from the path of certainty
From mediocrity

(Verse 2)
All I love has no value to them
To the machine turning
Churning
Out the copy of another copy
Torture
The clones of this generation

They don’t appreciate all that they have
Given by the ones who have succeeded
Ignore
All the wonder and imagination
Squander
The fire that burns inside of me.

(Bridge)
But I can safely say that I’m not so blind
They will FIND

(Middle)
There’s so much I don’t know
Feeling my way through all
Fighting for what I love
Fighting always because

(Chorus)
I can’t deny who I am
Soon the whole world will see
Fall from the path of certainty
From mediocrity

(Clean End)
Falling down
Pick me up

Try again
Always start over

My soul burns for my
Emergence
