Were you alive a hundred years ago?
Were you alive a hundred years ago?

What'll they say a hundred years from now?
What'll they say a hundred years from now?

Have you ever spoken with the dead?
Have you ever spoken with the dead?

No one knows, no one will ever know,
No one has so who will you believe?

It's a trick question I'm afraid
Every generation takes the truth to it's grave

If you could only see
If you only just knew
We are not free just because we can choose

If you could only see
If you only just knew
We really have nothing to lose
We are not free just because we can choose

What kind of people record history?
What kind of people record history?

How do we know that they're to be trusted?
How do we know that they're to be trusted?

"Why would they lie and who would benefit?"
"Why would they lie and who would benefit?"

Fundamentalists, so take a guess,
To keep control of us all to themselves

It's a trick question I'm afraid
Every generation takes the truth to it's grave

If you could only see
If you only just knew
We are not free just because we can choose

If you could only see
If you only just knew
We really have nothing to lose
We are not free just because we can choose

"Now that I rule the world,
They'll look back on me
'What a great man he was!'
A dark day in history
And no one will be left alive
To say a single word
It'll start all over again
Like a million times before"

Were you alive a hundred years ago?
What'll they say a hundred years from now?
Have you ever spoken with the dead?
No one has, no one will ever know
What kind of people record history?
How do you know that they're to be trusted?
Why would they lie and who would benefit?
Fundamentalists so take a guess

If you could only see
If you only just knew
We are not free just because we can choose

If you could only see
If you only just knew
We really have nothing to lose
We are not free just because we can choose
