(Ryan solo)

It's not easy to take it a step at a time
May take a while to realize
There's nothing wrong with going slow
Just close your eyes and let your mind unfold

Time ticks away
My mind drifts away
I don't want it caught, I don't want it back
Just let it run free

(Ryan solo)

It's hard to resist temptation
A million can't be wrong
Why don't you open the door?
This temple will not be razed
How can you question the gilded platter?

Crisis calls for immediate action
They move in fast to usurp the throne
There's nothing wrong with going slow
Turn back the clock, don't let the bomb explode

Freedom slips away
My rights chip away
I will not accept this, no
Just let me run free

I must resist temptation
A million can be wrong
Why don't you do what's right?
This sacred temple will not be razed
No matter how hard you try, until the day I die
You’ll never let me run free

Hey man at the front of the room
So sorry to leave so soon
But the slave still ponders yesterday
Does it threaten you?
Does it sicken and offend you
That I don't feel your level of shame?

(Brian solo)
