The Blinding of False Light Lyrics

11. The Blinding of False Light (5:10)
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 looked 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 to breathe without tyranny
In weakness we are freed

I admit my failure
Opacity has dulled my senses
Conformity
Controlled by lifeless vices

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

Now is our chance to breathe without tyranny
Released from the blinding of false light
Now is our chance
Now is our chance
In weakness we are freed
