lyrics

Your heightened elevation is shrinking down
What once was tall, no longer it grew
The constant suffocation killing the thing, that once burned bright inside of you

Stuck to going through the motions sadly, it’s just something that my bad luck did

Your inner revolution, is being lost the soldiers, your general slain
The constant infiltration the hero falls, no longer could he bear the pain

Not destroyed by the motion lacking, just defeated before we could begin

Another leaded I wonder how?
What once was now is could have been.

Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.

Your concrete resolution is crumbling down, the thin grey lines foretell its demise
unnoticed and un-nurtured the structure fails
to me that comes as no surprise

I couldn’t see though the walls were cracking, the flaws invisible to the eye

Though all your friends and neighbors see the truth, no sympathy comes from them or I

Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.

Do you want it, come and get it
For when its gone, you’ll regret it

Your rapid evolution is slowing down, its grand design is fading from view
Caught in the commotion’s shiny web, that now you see has got you too

I couldn’t move though my wings were flapping
The sticky substance kept me paralyzed

Though all your friends and neighbors see the truth, you’re living in your own white lie

Don’t destroy the plot that you planned, don’t you know that is the essence of a man.
