The city lights break the darkness
Like we’re in a feast somehow
Who forgot us? Who did we forget?
Remembrance is sleeping with the dead

Cheap champagne on ice for a toast
Exotic spice from the eastern coast
The river now begins to flow
In cracks of oblivion

Crimes untold, darker days unfold
Mass media corruption to the world
A tone of information in a child’s mind
How do you want me to remember last night?

A moment’s price
Is raised to a thousand lives
The future has no past
And were exposed

What used to be
Is no concern to us
We are the acid rain
into the eyes of truth

We never learn
Cause we don’t look behind
We’re just a dying race
Racing time

We never sit in silence
Just to think again
That what we loose today
Is all because of yesterday

And then more centuries
Will come to take their toll
While we sleep in our shells

Lay now back
Put your heart in my hand
Why do you forget?
Speak the truth and this sun will never set

You’ve been fed
For far too long you’ve been led
By blind gods of flesh
Sheep to knife, claws to the nest

Our children born
From beings old, wrecked and torn
What? What can we give?
When we never learn to live

Lacking memories, my love
Tears never shed,
seeds never sown
Far too many starless nights
Far too many sterile fights
For a world dying fast
Taking our memories away
This new world order trade
We have no past

They tie us into a chair
Our home is now their lair
Enslaved in mind (and heart)
We are unable to believe
We haven’t the privilege of a dream
Beyond the dark (we are)
