The noose around my neck
Cinched in tight, unmercifully
The tighter that it gets
Enables only my eyes to see

Truth through all the dust
Twisted lies which you decree
The system unjust
You will never bend my knees

The broken and the blessed
Both sides try to preach to me
Social unrest
Who labeled me the enemy

In pieces shall we rest
For those who choose not to believe
So put me to the test
Who wrote those pages of history?

Subject to another threat
Living without regrets
Pay the price with my death
The persecuted won't forget

I cannot breathe
You watch the pain, suffocating me
Lie, lies
I cannot breathe
You watch me bleed, suffocate me

Can't break away
My heart still beats unsevered
My soul will be saved
Amen, condemned
Forever

(1st solo - Eric)

I've been awakened
Can't be mistaken
The lessons beseech you
Break free from the noose

(2nd solo - Alex)

The noose around my neck
Cinched in tight, relentlessly
The tighter that it gets
My heart still beats
But I cannot breathe

In pieces shall we rest
For those who choose not to believe
Liberty in death
After all is said, you won't break me

Subject to another threat
Living without regrets
Pay the price with my death
The persecuted won't forget...
