All babies together, everyone a seed
Half of us are satisfied, half of us in need
Love's bountiful in us, tarnished by our greed
Oh, when will there be a harvest for the world
A harvest

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Hey
A nation planted, so concerned with gain
As the seasons come and go, greater grows the pain
And far too many, feelin' the strain

Oh, when will there be a harvest for the world
A harvest
Yeah, yeah
Gather every man, gather every woman

Celebrate your lives, give thanks for your children
Gather everyone (gather everyone)
Gather all together (gather all together)
Overlookin' none (overlookin' none)

Hopin' life gets better for the world
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Oh
Dress me up for the battle, when all I want is peace
Those of ous who pay the price, come home with the least

And nation after nation, turnin' into beasts
Oh, when will there be a harvest for the world
yeah, hey
When will there be

I want to know now, now
When will there be a harvest (harvest for the world)
When will there be a harvest (harvest for the world)
When will there be a harvest (harvest for the world)

Everybody (harvest for the world)
Oh, talkin' bout the children (harvest for the world)
When will there be a harvest (harvest for the world)
When will there be a harvest (harvest for the world)

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
