"Sacred" as written by and Eaven Ian Dall Ben James Nairne....
Hear me now
When the brightest city has fallen
And the last animal is diseased
Starving children
Will inherit a wasteland
What then has money achieved?

Stone monsters tear away
Great rivers burn aflame
Children of the future
Renew the truth

Renew the truth

We cannot have
Infinite economic growth
On a finite planet
Disengage everything
That you were ever told
We must restore the balance
And believe

I believe we must reshape this world
With so much to lose
We're dying to prove
Our life on Earth
I believe we must reshape this world
(Shape this world)
Do my eyes deceive me
Or is it us that need to change?
Where do we go from here?

When the purest rivers are poisoned
And the last forest destroyed
(Destroyed)
Dying children
Will be born from extortion
What is this evil contortion?

Everything you know
Everything you love
Sacred chaos unfolds
We're losing control

We're losing control
Disengage everything
That you were ever told
We must restore the balance
And believe

I believe we must reshape this world
With so much to lose
We're dying to prove
Our life on Earth
I believe we must reshape this world
(Shape this world)
Do my eyes deceive me
Or is it us that need to change?
Where do we go from here?

When the brightest city has fallen
And the last animal is diseased
Starving children
Will inherit a wasteland
So what the fuck will money achieve?

    Song MeaningBen Nairne in an interview (thewellzstreetjournal.com/2014/05/11/interview-with-ben-nairne-of-in-hearts-wake/) was asked about the song's meaning

    "We as a human race have been living on this planet using all of its natural resources but it’s time to start giving back. If we continue to take then one day there will be nothing left, it might not be in our lifetime but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a difference"

    General CommentProbably my favourite song by this band. I like that it maintains the anger and harsh vocals more so than many of their other tracks (even the soft vocals are whining on this track, and actually add to the track rather than detract as on many of their other efforts).

    I really love the message too, as a scientists I truly believe in their message and try to live my life by a similar mantra everyday (and I try to instill such on my children).
