lyrics

if you've read a history book, listened to the news, or spent enough time around a child,
you know that we are born selfish.
we enter the world grasping and struggling to get things our way,
stepping on who ever we have to to get to where we want to be.
it's natural to us to spout hate and wage war.
the "good" which any person may intend to do or be is
faulty in its premise, false in its motive, and weak in its implementation.
it's pandemic, it's in each of our hearts, and the cure is elusive.

can you feel it beat?
it breaks, it shakes, it seeks a cure for the disease
infected
the tragic flaw of our existence, i don't know if i can resist it!
genetic
hamartia

where your heart lies, there your actions speak
so it seems that i've encountered a disconnect
i swear my heart floats, but then my actions sink
i'm drowning in my regrets
yeah i love you, but i'll hurt you
it happens every time i swear i'm
flawed, i'm broken, failing, falling
catch me at the bottom of my divebomb spiral

it beats, it breaks, it shakes, it seeks a cure for the disease
infected
the tragic flaw of our existence, i don't know if i can resist it!
genetic
hamartia

with one heart we could beat this
are you with me? are you with me?
don't tolerate indifference
are you with me? are you with me?

like puzzle pieces our hearts
they form a larger image
an image of perfection
we can't achieve on our own
to cure our hearts of this curse
we need to share our burdens
our problems can not prevail
against our united hearts
i think i've found the answer
to cure our common illness
we have to stand together
we have to love each other
