A song about the 'growing gap' between rich and poor…
Emperors, black suits, princes and kings,
sucking the blood out of all living things
Behind doors a closing, beneath lock and key
We're shuffled aside
Won't be heard, won't be seen..

Walls growing higher as barriers thicken,
There's no use in tokens when nobody listens,
They're only hearing what they want to hear
The rest of our voices, they just disappear..

Feeling a little defeated,
Worn out and backed against a wall
Is my voice getting lost in this madness
Don't want to feel like I've lived for nothing at all..

Two rules to live by, one for us and one for them
Now I've seen the truth I'll no longer pretend
That everyone is equal and every choice free
They're freedom leads to nothing, when there's no opportunity

I feel like they're laughing as they're robbing us blind
It's just a game to them, the most money the prize
How could their game get so out of control
So few with everything, so many with nothing at all..

Feeling a little defeated,
Worn out and backed against a wall
Is my voice getting lost in this madness
Don't want to feel like I've lived for nothing at all..

So many dreams I've just had to forget
Each day I'm reminded of what I haven't done yet
My days passing by me, another moment gone
Am I losing this battle, is it the storm before the calm?..

Feeling a little defeated,
Worn out and backed against a wall
Is my voice getting lost in this madness?
Don't want to feel like I've lived for nothing at all..
