Rise From, “The Figures” Lyrics

We’re biding time as we wait for the signal
Sharpening blades when we hold out out the storm
These chilly evenings are virtually unbearable
But goal retains us warm

Pledge allegiance when crossing our fingers
A bark with no bite, no enamel just a roar
You’re not a thorn in our aspect you are a splinter
We are all set but we’re bored
Just keeping our location in line
And all the things moves way too gradual now
Breaking absent in time

They have the power
We have the figures now
It’s all just a consistent illusion
Of management
They crack us like horses
How extended will we drag their plow?
What will proceed to be
Is what we allow…

And even now we worship at altars so vacant
Intake of one thing we really don’t will need at all
Holes we just can’t fill
A hardly ever-ending song
“Again, from the top now…”

Textbook conditions we all healthy the profile
Mass surveillance we opened the door
Prey on the fears, the blurred traces of ideal and mistaken
Sped up ’til we simply cannot slow down
And at this velocity
1 wrong transfer and we go down
Brace for the reckoning
They have the electricity
We have the numbers
It is all just a continuous illusion
Of handle

They crack us like horses
How very long will we drag their plow?
What will proceed to be
Is what we allow…

Significant are the chains
We fasten to ourselves
Gathering the thorns
To shape into a crown

Is this saddle at ease?
Do these reigns sense tight ample?
Will you gallop when you’re kicked?
Or throw the rider off

Are you the inclined and the capable
Or are you spoken for?
Destined to provide what you abhor
Right up until it all provides out

Pay attention
Fuck what you call usual
And this force to conform
(Crack absolutely free)
It is your path to blaze
Or your bridge to burn up
They have the energy
We have the figures now
It’s all just a frequent illusion
Of command

They split us like horses
How extensive will we drag their plow?
What will continue to be
Is what we allow…
