Duality Of The Revolutionary

This song is by Thought Riot and appears on the album Shattered Mirror Syndrome (2002).

I can attest, trying to save the world is a hard mountain to scale.
This task we've set up for ourselves seems destined to fail.
Hands are so easily susceptible to damage
And every inside each and every wound festers hopelessness.

The weight we carry whispers words of apathy.
Sometimes it's just so tempting to let fingers slip away.

And fall right into the illusions that we sought to climb above.

All alone, stranded on this mountainside.
Exhaustion takes a heavy toll inside.
Arms are so prone to flights of fatigue.
Sometimes just holding on is in-itself challenging.

All the dirt collects in the wounds leaving me consumed.
Sometimes just one thought away from relinquishing control.

To fall right into the illusions that we sought to climb above.
I call out to you in hopes of finding anew my passion and love.

Sound Clip from The Goonies:
"These are somebody else's wishes. They're somebody else's dreams."
"Yeah, but you know what? This one, this one right here. This was my dream, my wish. And it didn't come true. So I'm taking it back. I'm taking them all back."

Through screams of defiance, I seek the strength to soar.
Bring myself one step closer so that I may breathe in pure air.
