Staring at the flames as they dance in red
On the corpse of the land
And there in they’re midst are wandering a countless unnamed
Walking hand in hand
Blind leading blind aimlessly into the quicksand’s of time where they sink
On the brink of eternity cold and alone I shrink
At the festering obscene corruption
And my silence in the face of this mass destruction

All rise, abandon your shadows and cut ties to your selfish pride
Fix your eyes on the sun
Get burned on the in side and turn these tides

Closed minds ill equipped to deal with this madness
Hearts far to hard to challenge a sadness that’s draining
The soul of a generation
Blanketed with tears are faces of nations


Everyone laughs, everyone cries, everyone lives
Everyone dies and in between they crawl
Through stagnate realities longing to fly
