The more you peel
The more you conceal
A bitter truth

A grave of the mind
Logic confined
Suppress the decision

The more you peel
The more you conceal
A bitter truth

A shattered plate
Disservice to hate
Begins the transition

Starting to absorb
Swallow the pain whole

The more you feel
The more you reveal
A bitter truth

At last you perceive
What’s hard to believe
Embrace the collision

You cannot ignore
This civil war
A bitter truth

Decision will bring
The simplest thing
An end to tradition

Starting to absorb
Swallow the pain whole

Tell me, show me
What they do to those pure hearts
and behind the walls
The world has lost all meaning

I’ve heard, forever
They serve me, I’m above
Tomorrow holds no place for thee

The less you block
The more you unlock
A bitter truth

Why try to defend
What you must amend
Revise the cognition

Excusing as fate
and quick to negate
A bitter truth

If you see the lie
You cannot deny
You’re caught in addiction
