The Fifth Rule

lyrics

Music: Carlos | Lyrics: Palma

City lights grow dim and far, cold, wet, off the coast
Scum of the earth left here to rot, behind the rusted bars
Laughter and life are miles away, colors drained from each dark day
A symbol of the nation's control

Miles and miles of chain and fence
Higher and higher a stone defense

(Chorus)
Day after day, the same
Nothing allows for change
Waiting for the day
Leave it behind, pay it no mind
It's time's escape

"Go ahead and swim" they say, he won't get very far
His longing to get off the rock, is drowned before it starts
Guards are called onto the block, sirens wail, fills the air
Gunfire echoes in the hall

Miles and miles of chain and fence
Higher and higher a stone defense

(Chorus)

Avoid the pointless war
Won't even touch the door
Men unaccounted for
Feet hit the ground, not to be found
Their own escape
