Track Name: World of Extremes
I lie, awake in fear
Voices they speak so obscene
Selling me, the road to salvation
Right from the TV screen.

Life here it comes
Ready, set, go - your wrong.
Dare take a side, and let reason decide -
You'll pay the price.

I'm running out -
It's my last ditch shout in defiance
I'm sick of this show, whose the enemy now?
Whose the saint?

I'm running out -
I'm a rebel endowed with a conscience
I'm sick of the pain, its a fruitless crusade,
for common sense.

I'm sorry I can't, just can't take, take another one second
Trading with hell, and I know what I'll sell gets me heaven
Tell me - I'm lost, what's the ultimate cost, what's it mean?
Fighting for right - in a world at the height of extremes

When I was, younger
My parents said college was key
The ticket to power
and secret to wisdom I'd need.

But now that I'm older
I see it's a whole different game
Illusion, is cheered as a savior
And ignorance made king.
