lyrics

Guilty:

We used to believe that everything happens for a reason,
But we also believe the news.
Each and every day leads us farther astray
From the promise we had to be normal.

Sometimes I look down on your creation,
A god forsaken nation.
Tell me how did we get to this?

Everyone's guilty
When nobody takes the blame.
Nobody steps to reclaim notorious fame.
While heroes die in hope for better days,
They sit on the side and waste our hopes away.

Last chance to define who we are,
A simple accusation that got shaped on our scars.
We get hit and we fall,
We get sick of it all,
But we're still breathing the same air.

My god am I going insane?
I just opened my eyes and I'm already to blame
For the crimes of the ones that sent their kids with a gun
To throw their life away.

We dare to dream of our freedom,
In the end we're just the victims.
The cycle of menace is spinning
Until nobody's left to hear you.

Everyone's guilty
When nobody takes the blame.
Nobody steps to reclaim notorious fame.
While heroes die in hope for better days,
They sit on the side and waste our hopes away.

How many more can we take
When everything around us breaks?

I'm still building a stand,
And yet rebuilding again,
It's been years that I sat on the fence, I sat waiting
For a justified act to repair all the hate,
I sat there hating for the fate we create contemplating
If a day comes to pass when we find resolution,
It would take more than words to ignite this illusion.
I just want to feel safe somewhere deep in my head,
Still I figured, safety only comes to those who are dead.

Everyone's guilty
For all the acts we take.
Nobody wants to make the same mistake.
While heroes die in hope for better days,
They sit on the side and waste our hopes away.
