Welcome home, while away
They have tampered with the locks
And your things they rearranged

We propose a better way
Said the note they left behind
In their wake of disarray, you fell in place

Don't fall asleep, they'll find us here
I know a place to disappear
As a voice proclaimed

What we are is the sum of a thousand lies
What we know is almost nothing at all
But we are what we are 'til the day we die
Or 'til we don't have the strength to go on
'Til we don't have the strength to go on

Let us cry, let us be
Let us open up our hearts
Without fear of anything

Faith alone is all we need
To traverse this burning bridge
Now before it gets too late

You claim it's fine
But the heart reveals what smiles betray
Your sad, sad eyes gave you away
But don't you know?

What we are is the sum of a thousand lies
What we know is almost nothing at all
But we are what we are 'til the day we die
Or 'til we don't have the strength to go on
'Til we don't have the strength to go on

Our shoulders bear an awful weight
But still we trudge on just the same
Our colors run then leave a stain
They blacken our once honest name

But how can we argue, tell me?
Over the fury and the fire
How many times can we tell you

That we are not like you, we see right through
The poor disguise that fails to fool
The wary eye that's trained on you

What we are is the sum of a thousand lies
What we know is almost nothing at all
But we are what we are 'til the day we die
Or 'til we don't have the strength to go on
'Til we don't have the strength to go on

What we are is the sum of a thousand lies
What we know is almost nothing at all
But we are what we are 'til the day we die
Or 'til we don't have the strength to go on
'Til we don't have the strength to go on
Yeah, we don't have the strength to go on
