lyrics

They say they search for a savior
But their motives don't lie in righteous behavior
Only one eternal, while they look in the temporal
Time reveals the futile efforts conceived by the mortal

A new idea, a new trend, same failure
A new voice, the same question, wrong answer
The same facts, & yet different conclusions
Confusion abounds in multitudes of solutions executed
& I'm forced to witness the backlash
Watching people willingly create or partake in the aftermath
After the roots have fully sunk in
They like leaves starting to bloom before blowing in the wind
Mindlessly, unknowingly trained subconsciously
Honestly, I feel I'm alone in this dichotomy
Standing on the other side knowing I shouldn't go there
But they want to determine my fate, & they don't care
So I'm in a fight, tryna defend my right
To think freely while they flexin' they might. They got
Strength in number, but it'll all come asunder
'Cause it can't hold to the doctrine taught by the Sons of Thunder

Welcome to the haunted world
It gets scary watching everything unfold
I don't want to look, but I ain't got a choice
But I got a voice to fight back the noise
Welcome to the haunted world
It gets scary watching everything unfold
I don't want to look, but I ain't got a choice
But I got a voice to fight back the noise

They say they search for a savior
But their motives don't lie in righteous behavior
Only one eternal, while they look in the temporal
Time reveals the futile efforts conceived by the mortal

They say this the post-modern age
As atheists take the role of the sage
Gladly dropping wisdom for a price
They say all should pay to get further in life
We inducted into the halls to get indoctrinated
Presuming they wouldn't lie - we may not be mistaken
Because they chose what to believe as the truth
But any contradictions instantly serve to refute
So I want to know why nature isn't relative
Subjecting us all to the same laws which tell us how to live
And you saying that we products of environment
But nature never changes a thing, so I ain't buying it when
You try to tell me that truths are relative to who's
Posing the question of what's ethical to do
If we're really products of nature, and that's your starting point
Nature also created philosophy - one order coined

Welcome to the haunted world
It gets scary watching everything unfold
I don't want to look, but I ain't got a choice
But I got a voice to fight back the noise
Welcome to the haunted world
It gets scary watching everything unfold
I don't want to look, but I ain't got a choice
But I got a voice to fight back the noise

But underneath a twisted system
Lies a hidden motive not admitted to the victims
But they accept it quick, 'cause it's in our nature to resist
The Creator of everything in existence
You may have noticed but perhaps haven't identified
A break from the morals that kept this nation solidified
Supposedly - that statement's never hundred percent accurate
When men try to credit God for all of their accomplishments
On the other side of the spectrum
How quickly we forgettin' history's lessons
Thinkin' we can answer the questions
Like we wrote the textbook ourselves
The devil don't exist? Nah, he's playing us well
I know that one day his reign will come to an end
Until then, I gotta fight with my right to defend
The truth, learn the lies so I can refute with proof
On the chance the insanity no longer continues

Welcome to the haunted world
It gets scary watching everything unfold
I don't want to look, but I ain't got a choice
But I got a voice to fight back the noise
Welcome to the haunted world
It gets scary watching everything unfold
I don't want to look, but I ain't got a choice
But I got a voice to fight back the noise
