Hey mister, can you help me sir
I plead, plead for your sympathy
Rains came, pounded us down again 
Your horizons they crawled up to my chin.
I started to, drown in your visions
I looked through your windows
As they flew through the air
All I could find was a river in pieces

How long, shall we play the martyr
See your misery.

Rains came pounded us down well again.
Hey mister come down and see
Through your weakness I shed my skin.
Open wide to my spirit. 

I looked through your windows
As they flew through the air
I was left swirling in your pool of aggression

How long, Shall we play the martyr. 
Hey mister come down and see
See your misery.

How long, Shall we play the martyr. 
Hey mister come down and see
See your misery.
