lyrics

If you listen close enough
You can almost hear it on the wind
Despair is all around us
The questions remain the same:
What can we do?
What would you give?
It becomes so easy to live this lie

Hold on! Everything is moving too quickly now and we are so far removed
from anything close to what we know as real
Yet our souls crave substance
And we are aware that we are blind
This path followed was not our own

This ancient tree has begun to wither and rot
Fruit slowly decays and falls from it’s limbs
A system of insecurity that’s buried within its roots
Systemic pestilence that’s carried through its arms

I’m beginning to see now
What was clear all along

And we are so far removed
from anything close to what we know as real
Yet our souls crave substance
And we are aware that we are blind
This path followed was not our own

Infinite truth is inside of us all
Gods have no place here
Find perfection in the dissonance
And purpose in the consequence

[Break our lives wide open, and we’ll pull the weeds,
Salt the earth and lay curses on what was to be filled with frailty, doubts and fear.
And that’s the end: Beings of no consequence.]
