I counted the seconds
As they passed me by like hours
Avoiding contact with the world
That seeks to find me

Somehow they've found a way
Of making me the firing range
The tragedy has just began
Now we must pay for what they've done

They came for me today, I found no escape
They're coming to rescue me from your disgrace
Why did they discard the embryo's contract?
It was never easy to pretend there was a reason

Turning in this vicious groove
I have fallen into
My father and my government
Forgot me when I was a child

Someday when I am stronger
I'll find my way across this room
I'll open up this door they've closed
I'm so afraid of what they've done

They came for me today, I found no escape
They're coming to rescue me from your disgrace
Why did they discard the embryo's contract?
It was never easy to pretend there was a reason

Outside my window lies
The promise of my freedom
I searched and found no sanctuary
To shelter my exposure to the rain

Time was gaining on me
I ran as fast as I could
The fever came too fast
Infected with tomorrow

Sometimes it seems to me
This is all we're meant to be
Is there anyone above them
To make them pay for what they've done

They came for me today, I found no escape
They're coming to rescue me from your disgrace
Why did they discard the embryo's contract?
It was never easy to pretend there was a reason

Outside my window lies
The promise of my freedom
I've searched and found no sanctuary
To shelter my exposure to the rain
