lyrics

Is there a way to get the culture down, to know it well and be part of it all?
Instead of wading through the public face, an endless chase, ceaseless race in my mind

The chosen path, the patient wanderer, the seeing stone, cast off deep to the night
When folding minds we stop the usurper, the conqueror, bleak though strength in the fight

Admittedly, it isn't going well, it's difficult, it's so hard to explain
We find ourselves at odds with living well, and staying well, that's less hard to explain

Closing in upon the goals we make, the fun we paced, designation of time
We understand we mustn't hesitate, we must embrace, origins of our kind

Usurper is that ride that makes cliche seem like rarity
far from the gentle push, a nudge, juggling every want and need
Usurper won't abide by thee, siphoning the very air to breathe
don't question the only relief, surrender the thought to concede

This world, is palpable
I feel wonderful

Usurper won't bequeath a sheath, cutting its way into the meat
twisting the blade upon the flesh, corrupting every life through greed
Usurper won't abide by thee, siphoning the very air to breathe
don't question the only relief, surrender the thought to concede

This world, is palpable
I feel wonderful
