Illusions (Rise To Remain)

I can't steer away from the tragedy before me,Its burning luminescence holds my eye,I can not understand it, you are so disenchanted In your shadow of a lifeI hold this one truth to myself:To never forget where I have come from Your lies beguile us all, but theres still a chance to change, You must forsake the facade, and realise just who you are For what you've done, you've faded to blackness (blackness) Your closing eyes, sink into darkness You've turned your back on what you believe, For the sake of walking through a dream, Your startling contradictions, All derive from your life's own fictions Illusions give you all the pride, That you need to deal with whats inside, But you'll never wipe the tears from your eyes, Because your living a selfish lie I hold this one truth to myself: To never forget where I have come from Your lies beguile us all, but theres still a chance to change, You must forsake the facade, and realise just who you are For what you've done, you've faded to blackness (blackness) Your closing eyes, sink into darkness (darkness) We're so determined to blaze our own trail, That we forget who we are and we cover ourselves in lies But I will not, for I have sovereignty, In the eyes of those who may judge me, I will overcome For what you've done, you've faded to blackness (blackness) Your closing eyes, sink into darkness (darkness)
