lyrics

This vessel of echoed cries
will never be the same
We'll go on knowing
Nothing will change
we fought the tide
and killed this world
showing our hatred defines us

Endlessly drifting
A dark mass floating into the abyss
We are lost
Flooding waters come and gone
There exists
nothing but the sands of the past covering our fall
Grain for grain, encompassing the planet that once gave life

We've lived too long
and fought this hard
Not to let it drift away
or fall apart
and the only truth known through my scars
will be nothing less than a distant star

The dust has settled
We have become a relic in time
Lost - and to be discovered by more worthy

I have become the philosopher
Stuck in time
Perplexed
What can I do?
Can we go back?
All the questions I have
Will they remain unanswered?
Will they remain

This vessel of echoed cries
will never be the same
We'll go on knowing
Nothing will change
we fought the tide
and killed this world
showing our hatred defines us all

Ice locked into the sublunary world,
I feel the pulse
I feel the rage
Losing strength and finite
It's a calm end for now and forever

Let my story
not be in vein
This vacant ship is but a garden
It remains whether you grow or die away

Wishing it could be so different
Our potential, our dreams,
Wasted away in the mistakes of our past
its over
its over now

Yet - this lifeless vessel
it drifts away
Untethered, unguided,
I fear that it will never be found
The madness that came from above and below,
It took this world away
Blinded in my rage,
I could not see the mistakes of my ways
Oh but how,
how could I see through the veil of ecstasy?
Am I alone in my reprieve?
No......no
Or am I calling out to the other souls looking for a lost home?
Perhaps we lost our way
Maybe it was too late to change
I will not come back
