Shadows of Darkness

lyrics

Acceptance of oppression
The expulsion from paradise
Eternal chase for weakness
The striving for more

Human chasms
The sellout of identity

The worship of might
The pursuit of wealth
The incantation of greed
Caught in the shadows of darkness

Ruined hopes and dreams
The mind is ablaze

Rats follow their piper
To the fields of desire
Into the depths of frustration
Through the gates of dependence

Before them nothing but blackness
and far behind the rotten rest
of millions of dream corpses
That never were allowed to live

The worship of might
The pursuit of wealth
The incantation of greed
Caught in the shadows of darkness

Accepted misery - homemade agony
Created to serve
Seduced to be fattened
Instructed to silence

Dull gray mass
The pleasure of uniformity
Carried away in the storm of time
Borne by the winds of disregard

Between sanity and madness
Prostitution of existence
Generations disappear
in the far reaches of unimportance
