Look around what you see is a product of our failed empire
As we clawed trough the Earth looking for a way to improve paradise

We were wrong

This is the fire we wrought
Crumbling embers of our pride and integrity
Fragile is the will
To break from comfort or second guess our opinions

Learned words and feigned hope could not keep the edifice from crumbling
As the ground where it stood bucked under the weight of our hubris

So breathe, breathe in the air

I am fucking desperate to have it all back
To feel the sun on my face
Grass underneath my feet and to hear sounds of life
Coming from this side of the wall

Not the world I have
Buried in smog and decay
There must be something left
Under the charred remains of what we had
Under the charred remains of what we lost

Don’t make our mistake
Don’t let the passion burn through your respect
You have to understand
It’s never too late to let it all get carried away

So fight for life
For what is right
To raise the light
And make it past the night
We had a choice
We chose wealth
And prayed that everything would be OK

Send your hopes into the sky
In a prayer no one hears
See the idols you have made
Wire bones and iron skin
How hurt Eden has become
You made your bed, now you die in it

This is on all of us
Our home our burden
So face the fear and indifference
And we will strive for a better world
