too real to be a dream
the images still haunting me
i tell myself forget about it
things aren't always what they seem
i wake to the thought of
who we were what we'd become
how easily will we succumb
to my vision of things to come

endless distractions are yours for the buying
it's easy for you if your not the one dying
this life we are given must be good for something
listen to me i say war changes nothing
endless destruction i'm sick of the waiting
for humans to realize enough of the hating
this moment in time a mere drop in the ocean
with all history set into motion

too late it has begun
i'm blinded by a million suns
all our prayers will not help us
some things just can't be undone

against the wall shadows fall
nothing's left save our souls
hell's here to stay heaven's moved away
out of time the blackened sky
nothing's left and it's too late
to realize what we threw away

war changes nothing

    General CommentI think this song is about how humanity is killing itself, and that we are doomed because of our humanity. Theres alot of selfishness and hatred in our world. Alot of humans take things for granted, and abuse the world to no end. I do think this can be stopped if more people would pull together and take these issues seriously instead of ignoring them. Anyway, good song, good beats, and rythms. Nice to dance to!
