As cities sink into the sea
she´d often turn to look at me
and tell me that the worst was yet to come

The mind I said despairs too fast
history´s a looking glass
but eloquence is withered on my tongue

Through the gates and ever on we go
she and I above and you below
and though we may pretend
the party never ends

If now I love the human race
It´s cause we wrote amazing grace
The lost are found the blind can see the light

A chill and zero at the bone
I can´t defend you all alone
Do not go gentle into that good night

Through the gates and ever on we go
she and I above and you below
and though we may pretend
the party never ends

So here we are before the the flood
but this time round the skies rain blood
the end of all there ever was foretold

I watch as countless cities burn
we´ve ever lost our chance to learn
the triumph of our breathless sin behold

Through the gates and ever on we go
she and I above and you below
and though we may pretend
the party never ends
