lyrics

Chorus

If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You gotta realize the game
Gotta stand up n' take the reins
If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You're doin' everythang the same
Gotta stop that n' break the chains

Verse 1

God please gimme the strength to rise
Help me to the other side
Be free you gotta gimme your light
Don't leave I'm needin' all of your might
These dark times n' these black holes n' these
Bright lights n' these lost souls
I know that history repeats itself so seamlessly
It don't matter who's in power
Or the leader of the hour
Agendas remain they don't change
The road is one way it is all the same
Same suit but a different face
Yea welcome to the human race
Do you feel outta place do you feel outta touch
Do you even care enough

Chorus

If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You gotta realize the game
Gotta stand up n' take the reins
If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You're doin' everythang the same
Gotta stop that n' break the chains

Verse 2

Get along why can't we get along
If we did then I wouldn't need to write this song
If we did then we wouldn't need to shed no blood
If we did then we wouldn't need to scream no love
These times are crazy escalating
Mind is blazing conscience raising
God can save me from this slavery
He's the one who made me
Paved the way so I can stay
Delay death another day
The dragons slain none remain
There is only physical pain
That's why we see it all today
And people cannot find the way
So they go n' try to fill the hole
Troubled lives troubled souls

Chorus

If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You gotta realize the game
Gotta stand up n' take the reins
If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You're doin' everythang the same
Gotta stop that n' break the chains

Verse 3

I dream of a time
When I can feel peace and release in my mind
When it's all over when it's all done with
Together again with the people that I run with
Valley green and mountain sky
Fire in the wind all night
Feeling everything's alright no longer stricken by the fight
Back to nature Christ the savior
Curses broken devils wager
Words are spoken God has chosen
Knows the one we put our hope in
Doors are open come inside
You don't ever have to hide
He's someone that you need to know
Please before its time to go

Chorus 2x

If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You gotta realize the game
Gotta stand up n' take the reins
If you cant escape the pain
And everything you do it still remains
You're doin' everythang the same
Gotta stop that n' break the chains
Oh maybe we'll learn when the world burns
