about

This track looks at the control of information that results from religious hierarchy and juxtaposes it with the 'Allegory of the Cave' from Plato.

lyrics

Cast before the eyes of the blind
In chains from your closed mind
Knowing only a shadow of reality
Break free from your naive mentality

We are all slaves to the hollow
Imprisoned by the masters you follow

Coerced into intolerance
Chastised for the sins of the ignorant
A price unfit for the innocent
Believed to be incompetent
Blinded by their resentment
Left cold from abandonment
Resentment

They claim to be god, gaining omniscience
Self-justification, claiming omnipotence

Such is the irony of the fallible
Believing that the shrines they build are inflammable
The ignorance of the blind
Will leave us all as cynics
A price unfit for the innocent
To be blinded by their resentment
We are all slaves to the hollow
Imprisoned by the masters you follow

Cast before the eyes of the blind
In chains from your closed mind
Knowing only a shadow of reality
