Verse 2 (with Verse Riff):
"And to this day she's glided on Always home but so far away Like a word misplaced, nothing said, what a waste When she had contact with the conflict There was meaning but she sold him to the state She had to turn around"

"When she couldn't hold, she folded A dissident is here Escape is never the safest path A dissident, a dissident is here"
