lyrics

As a species we stand here at the end
Such a journey
to have come that far for all to crumble down

There are spirits watching over us now
Know at your end
Only matter will die, spirit will flow back home

Home

Only matter will die, spirit will flow back home

We're at war
Our campaign to end life itself

We cannot win this time yet
Sure as hell we'll try

In a barren wasteland the last of us will dry

I spent my life in a glass cage
Built of fear and greed of great age

I was blind to their insane rule
Blessed by our consent

We are the last ones to appear in this form
such a journey that we took in this storm

We did learn much from the love and the fear
Human form fades
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades

Since birth we are taught to fear all unknown
To see strangers far, near

Fear of death equals fear of life
The greatest truth I hold

Slow, we sway
Dance of decay

Fools brought down
By our tears we drown

Drown as one like we lived none
Hand in hand at world's end stand

Slow, we sway
Dance of decay

Gone like all who through fear grow tall

We're at war
Our campaign to end life itself

We are terrified of death so
we lead our lives in hell

In this barren wasteland the last of us will die

We are the last ones to appear in this form
such a journey that we took in this storm

We did learn much from the love and the fear
Human form fades
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades

We, the restless blind
All one hive-like mind

We, the restless blind
To the truth: we are of one kind

We, the restless blind

All one hive-like mind
Plants, beasts, all so entwined

with us, the restless kind

Look a beast in the eye and you'll see
Your own far younger self

They are here to learn like me and you
Not to be herded and slaughtered for stew

Same is true for all manner of beings
They are part of the flow

To be respected as me and you
There are no strangers here as we all prepare to drown

Drown as one like we lived none
Hand in hand at world's end stand

Slow, we sway
Dance of decay

Gone like all who through fear grow tall

We are the last ones to appear in this form
such a journey that we took in this storm

We did learn much from the love and the fear
Human form fades
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades

Fed up with our pitiful charades

As a species, you stand here at the end
Such a journey
To have come that far for all to crumble down

I'm a spirit watching over you now
Know at your end
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades
