Lyrics:

When your heart moves away from your brain,

When your fingers feel all of the pain,

When you realize that moment is here,

When those words first sneak into your ear.

 

So you breathe in short bursts of thin air,

And your legs feel the weight of the glare.

And your nerves start searching for sense.

Feel your skin tighten up in defense.

 

For your brain races forward to find

The awareness that comes into your mind,

With the judgment that sets you apart, 

From others who think they're so smart!

 

Then you realize there's nothing to gain

When your plan mixes relief and pain!

And your skills are not up to the task

Of spreading hope to those who ask!

When everything else has been tried,

That's when Sigma and Theta collide!

 

My country shares its beat with the sun,

Where the waves carry the sand 'til their done.

The swirl carries around all our souls,

'Til our lives are laid out on the shoals.

 

We look up to the heavens and see

Our ancestors where they should be.

The gods have their archers take aim.

And Zeus chooses his moment to shame!

 

But the arrows never reach who they should!

Mythology is still misunderstood.

Typhon's now disguised as a man,

Talkin' about bailouts and a fair plan!

 

But the pain's still felt by those who live below,

Who breathe in a disease that they don't know!

With no cure, except more of the same!

A people whose hope has no name.

When everything else has been tried,

That's when Sigma and Theta collide!

 

When everything else has been tried,

That's when Sigma and Theta collide!
