Prog metal track about This Perfect Day by Ira Levin. 

Lyrics

Verse 1

Bound to this reality

Made to feel, made to see

Content in chains, each day the same

Shown what we are, Meant to be

 

Chorus 1

Revealed to me by chance or fate

Something else out there awaits

Shown a flash in a drugged-out haze

Beginning to realize my chains

Grand Vision or tragedy?

 

When deciding manifests

You must always try to suppress.

 

Verse 2

Father used to play a little game

of wanting things

I'm content in chains I cannot break

each day the same

Now I have, begun to see

 

Chorus 2

Revealed to me by chance or fate

Something else out there awaits

Shown a flash in a drugged-out haze

Beginning to realize my chains

Grand Vision or tragedy?

Mistake or what's meant to be

 

Chanting Vocal Section

Christ, Marx, Wood and Wei

Led us to this perfect day

Marx, Wood, Wei and Christ

All but Wei were sacrificed

Wood, Wei, Christ and Marx

Gave us lovely schools and parks

Way, Christ, Marx and Wood

Made us humble, made us good.  Good

 

Bridge

Oh...Like a vision, far to clear

Everything comes back to me

 

Verse 3

Eyes wide open to the fear

I have now, begun to see

I must find a way out 

To escape, before the haze returns

I must find a way out

To escape, before reality starts to blur

 

Chorus 3

Revealed to me by chance or fate

Something else out there awaits

Shown a flash in a drugged-out haze

Beginning to realize my chains

Grand Vision or tragedy?

Grand Vision or tragedy?

 

Revealed to me by chance or fate

Something else out there awaits

Shown a flash in a drugged-out haze

Beginning to realize my chains

Grand Vision or tragedy?

Mistake or what's meant to be?
