Lyrics

nothing more nothing less
an icon on the wall decoration and
duress
that which may strive to be
its the marble statue standing over me
and nobody has the will to tear it down
it determines wrong and right
but to me its just a stereotype
and it makes us lose our sight
the portrait of authority
you tell me
that's what im supposed to be
(it embodies what he cannot be)
another time another man
an oppressive intrusion
and a plague across his land
and it haunts him every day
it tells him he has no chance
his hopes just fade away
and he lives his life
prepared to tear it down
but he can't muster the support
and to him it's just a stereotype
of his life-long fight
