Clarity (Official Lyric Video)

Without a word uttered
A comparison is drawn.
A distant future, a cluttered past
Amid the stars.
Vague and persistent,
Thought lacking consistency.
Unwilling victim of farce.
The loudest voices scream uninspired.
Their numbers vast, their spirits drowned.
Quiet choices sing against the choir
The majority is almost never wrong...
Never wrong... Ever... Never wrong.

A laughable assertion
That there might be some connection
Adorn the walls with mirrors and misdirection,
Or let it go
Or let it go
Or let it go
Or let it go

No common thread,
No ties that bind.
Just grasping and clawing to keep in mind.
Historical analysis
They play us every vote,
But what contributes more to the whole?

Like a saucer ship
Let's separate and shuffle off this conflict.
My armament will suffocate,
And leave you feeling useless.

We are your beginning
And we will be your end.
Affluence permitting, a mutual annihilation.

A laughable assertion
That there might be some connection
Adorn the walls with mirrors and misdirection,
Or let it go
Or let it go
Or let it go
Or let it go

Discussion moves
Our guilt men tended
Aggressive mutes
Stumbling defended
Fiction versus fantasy where factoring's unclear
How you protect both franchises
That's all that anyone cares

We are your beginning
And we will be your end.
Affluence permitting, a mutual annihilation.

I don't care who shot first
Or for the song and dance you've rehearsed. (Mutual annihilation)
I don't care who shot first,
Or for the song and dance you've rehearsed.

The maps are divided
And each I've traversed.
Alignment influx for better or worse.
Is the drain finally swirling
Or are we swirling the drain?
The drought is relieved with acid rain.

This drought is relieved with acid rain.
This drought is relieved with acid rain.
This drought is relieved with acid rain.

(We are) We are your beginning (and the end)
And we will be your end (We will bring your end)
We are your beginning (Your beginning)
And we will be your end (We will bring your end)

Affluence permitting, a mutual annihilation
