We stopped believing in what we should really do
A profit nation can’t see these lies all through
The gates are closing, day becomes the night
If no one will believe in us then who will win the fight?

Hearing what you say, I can’t make up my mind
You’ll believe it when you see it when the planets have aligned
The end is drawing near, our cataclysmic fear
I’m so lost in superstition I could make it my career

You’ll all see, it’s not just me, that eventually, it’s catastrophe

The world is changing, we’re all changing too
Our caustic kinship will soon become our doom

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah
our impending doom
Every day and every night we sing songs joy we sing songs of fright
All the walls are closing in, how can we crush our mortal sin?

Soon the beasts will rise with a fire in the skies
Our demise will be short and swift, a carnival of cries
Politicians, activism, little fish and who will kill them
Delusions of the mind, I hope this can subside
Calibrate, substantiate, illuminate our cosmic fate
Contemplate the notion, give in to devotion
Origins of space entwined, our allegiance to all of mankind

Seeing all I’ve seen, I can’t be undefined
All the reasons for the seasons til the end of time
Our purpose here remains so unclear

Our lives prolonged, but who belongs in the tides of grace and the human race
All that we fear, and all we’ve confined will leave us empty with nothing inside

All that we mean, and all that we’ll be… will lead us home

Stories told, life in the fold
The autumn shade passes by
Looming clouds overhead
Our worlds aligned, lost in rewind
A world sustained, stuck in refrain
The world will never be the same
