​Just The Same

This song is by Aviatik and appears on the album The Reconstruction (2008).

This precaution ties us down
From our ambition to be weightless
Here we're tethered to the ground
While our hearts lead us to fly
And the unity we seek
As we attempt to integrate this
No one sees the implications
We must coalesce or die

And the loss, look at what it cost
Couldn't this fly before the wires got crossed?

Breaking down is just the same
As blank submission
Compromise is just the same as giving up
When we've finally lost ourselves
It breaks me, so shake me
Compromise is just the same as giving up

In defense of things untried
Innovation can seem daunting
Held by walls of fear and pride
While the wicked love to lie
In the failures of the past
There's a hint of something haunting
No one sees the implications
We must coalesce or die

Left inside and we never could tell
This was true
When it breaks you
There's nobody left here but you
You'll never see what's in me
Till we break ourselves apart
You'll never see what's in me, what's in me

So you took me from the ashes
And your eyes could see right through me
It breaks me, it shakes, me
It breaks me, I've done my time here
So you took me from the ashes, it's another lie
It breaks me, it shakes, me it breaks me,
I've done my time with you

We're not forgiving, not forgetting
I've never been the way that I feel right now

Stand strong and fix bayonets boys
We used to raise our torches to ignite this light
Illuminate this emblem for tonight we fight
When your last ambition dies
Close your windows, shut your eyes
Your light shines shorter than a shooting star

Rise up, lift your voices
We're not giving up
