Lyrics Donnelly/Clegg


Worlds torn apart starved of care
Withered and bare it ways lightly
Too tarnished to regrow
Chance was rare
Thrown away
Won't find it

Turn back
Two hundred decades
Of sacrifice and sin
From the first to the last
We could never win

Cut loose
Scouring the labyrinth
Shaking with despair
Strapped down
Trapped in the astrolab out of air

Now monster's heart it's not there
Hiding from man it's unsightly
Impossible to reflow
Set in stone
Karma's way can't ride it

So what can be done
And how can things change when
Acceptance has conquered all lifeform
Infested to the bone
Quick decline into fear
Now we're blinded

A Nebuchadnezzar of sparkling white wine
He drank for ten hours and scratched out his eyes
And affluent empire he raised pound by pound
Just like all of his buildings they burned to the ground
