"The End of Innocence" as written by Michael James Romeo and Russell Allen....
Bite your tongue, the blackened sun
Will curse the moon.
Skies of fire, nothing's worth a damn
Calculate, anticipate your every move,
Beware, the ruthless hearts of men

Feel my pain, my words are in vain,
I believe it's the end of innocence
Don’t look away; oh hear what I say,
I believe it's the end of innocence

Cut and splice on this device to generate,
Sons of light synthetic dogs of men,
Crushed beneath the dragon beast, breathing hate
Your blood, your blood is on their hands!

Feel my pain, my words are in vain,
I believe it's the end of innocence
Don’t look away; oh hear what I say,
I believe it's the end of innocence

The world is dying,
The precious sands of time are running out.
We are the fallen, made obsolete,
Methodically phased out.
Feel my pain

Feel my pain, my words are in vain,
I believe it's the end of innocence
Don’t look away; oh hear what I say,
I believe it's the end
It's the end of innocence

    General CommentWhat a great song. This song is the basis for the entire idea of this album: we have become too reliant on technology, and as great of an asset it is to humanity, it is turning us into something less than human.

    I also think this song is from the viewpoint of the robots: the lines "Beware - the ruthless hearts of man" and "Sons of light - synthetic gods of man" are referring to the robots, as they are 'synthetic'. Or, perhaps, we have come to "worship" all of our technological devices, hence "synthetic gods".

    The end of innocence is a very powerful line, and its very true for modern society. Our children are not as innocent as we once were. More and more time is spent inside, away from real social interaction, exercise, and everything else natural.
