12. Marionettes (II. The Ascent) (3:19)
[Verse 1]
Looking up and gripping their strings
They ask where do they lead?
Where do they lead?
Climb! Climb!
Search and seek!
We will test this truth' you speak!
Climb! Climb!
Search and seek!
We will test this truth' you speak!

[Verse 2]
"By the sweat of one's brow
Thou shall eat bread"
But curiosity began to creep
From underneath the bed
Of toil and doctrine
And the marionettes awaken
Into a nightmare

[Verse 3]
Now we see the warning sign
We'll disobey our Frankenstein
I keep my focus, keep my cool
The higher we go, climbing up to heaven
Or a hell or maybe something inconceivable
It used to be unspeakable
We snatch back our strings
[Verse 4]
And as the freedom bell rings
They start to sing
Reveal yourself, reveal yourself
The world that you created
Is not mightier
Than our means to remake it!

[Chorus]
Our minds are firewood
And now we spark the match
We set ourselves alight
Escape this childhood
And now we spark the match
We set ourselves alight
We set ourselves alight
Our minds are firewood
And now we spark the match
We set ourselves alight

[Bridge]
Oh, truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees
Oh, truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees

[Chorus]
Our minds are firewood
And now we spark the match
We set ourselves alight
Escape this childhood
And now we spark the match
We set ourselves alight
(Oh, truth hurts.)
We set ourselves alight
(Now you know - truth frees.)

[Outro]
(Oh, truth hurts.)
Our minds are firewood
And now we spark the match
(Now you know - truth frees.)
We set ourselves alight
Truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees
Truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees
Truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees
Truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees
Truth hurts
Now you know - truth frees
