ABSTINENCE lyrics - The Banished

ABSTINENCE
"The Banished"
(Abstinence)

Glass shatters as the tension builds within neural cells, suffocating
Unexplained and illogical interpretations of atrocities hidden
All becomes apparent
As the screams from the wronged come from within
Realized now falsities cleverly exclaimed
Heightened pain equals more frequent inquisitions
A change from the previous, comfortable lack of concern
Myth after myth obliterated
Freedom has a price masked and diverted
Anxiety rises as tormentor turns to tormented
But the cycle will repeat, repeat, repeat
