Empty Shell (Allegiance)

Can pride be the essence of what drives a man? Motivational force a will to succeed World be captured an untamed need What strange secrets do you hide? Expressionless stare Expressionless pride What you can be, what we know now Is just an empty shell - a life of hell Sense of dignity Sense of well being One's inner strength Split at the seams What weight to be shared? Is a weight to be bared? To carry a load that can cursh our own Sense of preservation What strange secrets do you hide? Expressionless stare Expressionless pride What you can be, what we know now Is just an empty shell - a life of hell What strange secrets do you hide? Expressionless stare Expressionless pride What you can be, what we know now Is just an empty shell - a life of hell Sense of dignity Sense of well being One's inner strength Split at the seams Crushed by the force Overloaded by thought To distruction as one Self destruction begun
