Two rushing shades meeting face to face
Dull procedures come and go every day

A thousand tricks and one thousand smiles but
Life is not profound

An endless tide of ideas and belief
It's a mess, 'cause nobody thinks or feels
The sky laughs loud, entertainment for free
We are nothing

Gain, all we gain is trivial nonsense next to nothing
Our merit is: failing whenever we can
We are so precious...
But I say, we are next to nothing!
We are nothing, next to nothing, we are nothing

A friendly smile hiding misunderstandings
I see your mask but your soul I can't find

A thousand lost days, two thousand new ones
Tunnels light or dead end

Another night and even more days to come
And I've to look into mortal faces
It's just an act of regret and farewell
We are nothing

I look at you and wonder
Is it me whom I see
I am one of those mortals too
I'm lost as well as you

Where is my sympathy
I'm not one of those
Who're loving life, loving life eternally

    General CommentI love this song, though reading the lyrics it's pretty dark and depressing, yet very truthful at the same time. Humanity is definitely going down the shit hole. The catchiness of this song is very deceiving. XD
