Limitation Kills


One day petty people will awaken,
With this in full acknowledgement...
Decisions and with their choices made,
Are theirs to make.
To debate a brickwall breaking to crumble,
From lack of acceptance and innovation...
Is its own barrier.
And those who profess truth and sincerity,
Quickly apologizes to minds offended by common sense...
Yet too immature to understand what honesty is.
It is truly a blessing to discover the meaning of truth.
And to observe to comprehend limitation kills.
And what those who have chosen to do...
With 'with' new purchase equipment to rid rubble crumbling,
Away.
To not fill the ground around and beneath them shaking.

Limitation kills,
Yes it does.
And hurts,
Within the mind in time,
When those begin to see...
Limitation kills.
When the feeling is believed,
Limitation kills.
Limitation kills.

Limitation kills,
Yes it does.
And hurts,
Within the mind in time,
When those begin to see...
Limitation kills.
When the feeling is believed,
Limitation kills.
Limitation kills.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
