lyrics

It seems the world has passed me by
and even though I cannot see why I should care
I can't deny trying to find the reason why

I don't get this modern age, don't get these modern ways
we're all just trying to get by
while breaking other people's backs across the globe

we gave up hope, when we decided it was right
to trust the men, who'd sell their mothers to survive
and now we're struggling with a sense of inner-doubt
confusing us to disbelief, resulting into shouts and screams

And now we look upon the face of the man who betrayed
the last remainders of hope, and lived to tell the tale
what keeps him from dying is what keeps us from trying
to find out what happened at all

it seems the time is passing by
and with fleeting moments left
I fear there's not much more to do

unless there's someone else like you
who can direct me back to where I used to be
when I was unaware of the fate and misery

of the planet we inhabit
I'm starting to regret the point
of ever even noticing the difference
between right and wrong

and they were right when they said ignorance is bliss
now every waking moment I get tired of the same old shit

And now we look upon the face of the man who betrayed
the last remainders of hope, and lived to tell the tale
what keeps him from dying is what keeps us from trying
to find out what happened at all

The drums are calling your name
so dance to the cadence of war
a rhythm that carries both glory and fame
selecting the brave from afar

And now we look upon the face of the man who betrayed
the last remainders of hope, and lived to tell the tale
what keeps him from dying is what keeps us from trying
to find out if it mattered at all
