these are the ways we die inside
granted i may have to cover my eyes
don't be a fool i heard them say
don't be a fool and throw this away

ability got the better of me
our freedoms only served to limit what we could achieve
if we were to see what it would be like
not to desire, i wish i hadn't lied to myself

technically alive
just not inside
i'll be shielding your eyes
please will you shield mine

i've changed how i perceived the world
no longer in the pursuit of their dreams
our futures ours to be made
we are not slaves they are enraged
we can still save ourselves

technically alive
just not inside
i'll be shielding your eyes
please will you shield mine
not for the first time
i feel revived
my heart free, my miind wide
now is the time that we decide

my heart
is free
my mind
is wide

technically alive
just not inside
technically alive
just not inside
i'll be shielding your eyes
please will you shield mine
not for the first time
i feel revived
my heart free, my miind wide
now is the time that we decide
