"As I Lay DyingLyrics

I see now, I see through the veil of expectation
I see now, I see that conformity is betrayal

Betrayal of those who are forgotten, yet vision alone furthers our blame
Unless followed by transformation, it is pointless to be given sight
Without the hope of our reaction, we overlook the purpose of our eyes

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light.
(blinding of false light)
Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny. In weakness we are freed

I see now, I see that conformity is betrayal

With empty eyes I’ve looked ahead (ahead), with clarity I now look back

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false light.
(blinding of false light)
Now is our chance (our chance) to breathe without, without tyranny
In weakness we are freed. Yeah!

I admit my failure. Opacity has dulled my senses
Conformity (conformity) controlled by lifeless vices. Oh! Yeah!
Covetousness (covetousness) disguised as ambition
But now it ends
But now it ends
But now it ends
But now it ends
Not with defeat but determination. We are freed. Yeah!

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny, released from the blinding of false (false) light (light)
Now is our chance
Now is our chance
In weakness we are freed
