​Echoes of the Spirit

This song is by The Human Abstract and appears on the album Midheaven (2008).

Until you're ready to break, until you're ready to bend... critical condition, critical.
Until you're ready to break, until you're ready to bend.

The years will wear down every brick you lay.
There's more to life than selling your days.
Money makes sense in the world today, they say.
I'm not living that way, I'm not living that way.

Setting off, setting off their alarms, because I've got a voice of my own.
I won't be a product on the industry line.
You stand for nothing or you stand alone.

Leave it to us to cross the final line.
Can you feel the dawning of our time?
Take a moment to turn and see the signs.
Can you feel the dawning of our time?
It's time to wake up and turn the light on, come on.
Can you feel the dawning of our time?
Turn the light on...

Setting off, setting off their alarms, because I've got a voice of my own.
I won't be a product on the industry line.
You stand for nothing or you stand alone.

Until you're ready to break, until you're ready to bend... critical condition, critical. x3

Setting off, setting off their alarms, because I've got a voice of my own.
I won't be a product on the industry line.
You stand for nothing or you stand alone.

Pitiful, doing what you're told,
You stand on the watchtower here in our last hour
And say that you know, typical of those that will never see.
Say that you know... typical of those that will never be free.

Just like that, they took our strongest years in the name of greed.
Just like that, made commercials out of our broken dreams.

As pitch black from factory stacks turns all the world's beautiful colors to gray,
Empower the rights they can't take away: Raise your voices,
Echoes of the spirit, echoes of the spirit, resounding in tones that set you free,
Shout with me, we are awake!

Setting off, setting off their alarms, because I've got a voice of my own.
I won't be a product on the industry line.
You stand for nothing or you stand alone.

Critical condition, critical... figured it out because we've all been here before.
Critical condition, critical condition... we've all been here before.
