Vacancy Lyrics

9. Vacancy (4:26)
We live in slavery
To a past we cannot escape
And I say it's worth
It to just start again, again

We've focused so long
On ideals of freedom
That it is this very belief
That oppresses us.

We all want to be free
Yet we find ways to forfeit liberty
To our own impulses
To our own consumption

So I say it's worth it
To build a new foundation
A new foundation
A new foundation
A new foundation
It's a past we cannot escape

This vacancy
Will take everything
This world can offer
But what is control
Once we have let go
Of all we suffer

Once we've let go

When we've awakened to
Admit we are all enslaved
then there is freedom
In our choice to disobey

Our creeds have become a justification
To live the way that some see fit
And no one is more hopeless
Than those blinded by the scales of content

This vacancy
Will take everything
This world can offer
But what is control
Once we have let go
Of all we suffer

We live in slavery
To a past we cannot escape
So I say it's worth it
To just start again

We've let go
We've let go
We've let go

This vacancy
Will take everything
This world can offer
But what is control
Once we have let go
Of all we suffer

We can't escape
We can't escape
We can't escape
We can't escape

So I say it's worth it to start again
