In necessariis unitas, in dubiis libertas, in omnibus caritas.

For this comfort
I've sacrificed my liberty
For this wisdom
I have lost my purity

For this beauty
I have paid all my money
For this soundtrack
I've muted my symphony

For me it’s not a make or break
Its always timid give and take
But when it’s human life at stake
I question every trade I make

For this pleasure
I have given up my health
For this attention
I have abandoned my stealth

For this embrace
I have damned all that I am
For this romance
I have heard closet doors slam

For me it’s always fight or flight
A divine day or hellish night
When I renounced ignorant bliss
I didn't know it'd be for this...
