don’t explain to me the way this world works
because I’ve walked its surface for long enough
every day I see people searching for redemption
they lay their fate in the hands of the powerful few
who are playing god over a world that’s engulfed by defeat
I’d rather walk my own steady pace apart from the masses
I am a wandering soul aspiring for more
so many different stories of defeat
so many faces of death
but I have always kept my fate
by trying to reach beyond what keeps us confined
seeking for different ways
the chains of habit are too light to be felt
until they are too heavy to be broken
never give in or settle for less than what you are worth
strife for something more
