Verse 1

Friction with life erodes away

A part of our hearts every day.

We grow cynical, clinical,

In a world that's too finical

About preserving deceptive

Appearances, we're captive,

Restrained by the lies all around.

But one day the truth shall be found.

Chorus

When our eyes are shuttered and they open to the truth,

The stains on our souls will all be disclosed.

Verse 2

Introspection has gone extinct,

We are all slaves to our instincts,

Primal, dark, reckless, and futile.

This hunger took hold of our smiles,

Stripped off the warmth, added plastic,

Mirth won't reach our eyes when we speak.

Our sweet Atlantis will soon drown.

Then at last the truth will be found.

Chorus

When our eyes are shuttered and they open to the truth,

The stains on our souls will all be disposed,

Washed away by the deepest remorse.

And we'll drift away from this destructive course.

Bridge

This age of decadence

Has silenced the cadence

Of glorious empathy,

But we shall soon break free.

Chorus

When our eyes are shuttered and they open to the truth,

The stains on our souls will all be disposed,

Washed away by the deepest remorse.

And we'll drift away from this destructive course.
