Ultimately we're all dead men
Sadly we cannot choose how
But we can decide how we meet that end
In order that we are remembered as men

In shadows and dust
In shadows and dust

As I walk through the valley of shadows and dust
No hope in the eyes of the lost
Your hero nailed to the cross
We're animals in search for blood
Never satisfied
Never gratified
Until the day we die
I step into your life and take control

Time stops the sky turns dark
Never again shall you feel Godlike
We're nothing divine
Never again shall you feel Godlike
Emotions are swift like the winds
Never again shall you feel Godlike

In shadows and dust
In shadows and dust

Reflections of yourself
Illusions made by your mind
Realize we are nothing
We are nothing
But shadows and dust

    Yeah, basically how we have no control over the bad things that happen. They'll happen eventually and there's nothing we can do about it. And Kataklysm rules.

    The sample at the beginning of the song comes from the movie Gladiator.
