None of this matters, none of these words
Common and silent we will die in this world
We've only spoken to those who agree
And without them we've fallen on deaf ears

Stand on conviction and you will walk alone

For once I have stood no one will know
But alone I was born and alone we must go

In my convictions I've found my own grave
But amongst the dead we all fade away

Yet solitude is better than a life not worthy of reaction
There is nothing to lose
So we stand alone or join those who follow in misery

In my convictions I've found my own grave
But amongst the dead we all fade away
Fade away

Stand on conviction and you'll walk alone
A voice is only a noise without someone to hear
And without a crowd to feed that noise grows silent

For once I have stood no one will know
But alone I was born and alone we must go
Fading back into an anodyne sea
To drown with all who've gone before me

We must go

In my convictions I've found my own grave
But amongst the dead we all fade away

Stand on conviction and you'll walk alone
Fading back into an anodyne sea
Fading back, fading
Fading back into an anodyne sea
Fading back, fading away
