Lyrics

Gadfly

Written By: Dwayne Ulliac

Why do, we fall
For all, the lies?
They say, we're equal
Until, the gadlfy dies

As we, are born
Our role is, assumed
To help, help it grow
To help, help consume

Why do we do things that they say?
When we know there's a better way?
There's a price for everything
There's a price on everyone

Don't think wrong of me anymore
I only question to explore
Explore a new way
So why must we fear a change?

It seems, You are blind, Until, You die
It seems, They took your mind, Now you wait, To die
It seems, We are blind, Until, We die
It seems, They took our mind, Now we wait, To die
