Avoiding this is like avoiding the plague
We can't understand the advances we made
We try to resist but it's so hard to say no
We're pretending to see what the future will hold
We appear to be in control of our fate
Just like soldiers believe they're in control of the war
Its moving so fast we cannot see what we've done
We're losing our eyes just to say that we've won
My minds made up, my heart is broke
My fortune's is made me and I feel so choked
I can't understand how we can ever believe
The things we've asked for but never received
We never understood the times we asked
The way we wasted all the past
This neglected final into stage we must
Endure to ever hope to see the first
My minds made up about the things we did
We never saw we believed we could say what we missed
My minds made up, my heart is broke
My fortune's is made me and I feel so choked
I can't understand how we can ever believe
The things we've asked for but never received
By making noises cause we cannot control
The things we hoped that we'd never fore-go
We appear to be in control of our fate
Just like soldiers believe they're in control of the war
If its moving so fast we cannot see what we've done
We're losing our eyes just to say that we've won
My minds made up, my heart is broke
My fortune's is made me and I feel so choked
I can't understand how we can ever believe
The things we've asked for but never received
