​Stalemate

This song is by EDL and appears on the album American Standard (1997).

Perpetual motion is something you have yet to achieve.
Your peers would think they deceive.
In mindset of what you could accomplish,
The luster of hope is a far wish.
For what we could grab, brought down by grace,
Everything now in the wrong place.
Ignorance, selfishness, jealousy but who engulfed this stupidity.

When your ears can hear and you eyes can see
What you did to my joy is nothing short of rape,
Perpetual motion of stalemate
Then I see you in your extremities
What you did to my joy is nothing short of rape,
Perpetual motion of stalemate

Perceive to yourself all must be true.
Allow no one against to influence you.
A shell without joy remains a shell.
When will be the time when your love will prevail.
Rise up and resurrect the dream, as simple as can be
But still they scheme to fill your world with the discontent,
Time to relent wasted time spent.

Now's the time to rise up (4x)

Be what you want to be,
Break the powerless authority in my seniority,
For what I say to you to thy self be true, time to break through.
In this sickness for what you call a paradigm,
Within your own self but what you can't find.
All the things you've done to my joy is nothing short of rape.
A perpetual stalemate.

Now's the time to rise
