lyrics

Analyze, reconsider, take action
We strive for true happiness
In a broken society driving us insane
Forcing us to find a way to keep misery away
For some time or life time.
Rebuild...or...
Escape...

Using the eternal "drowners of cares"
Withdrawing us from the pressure of reality

To ascend to our own perfect worlds
Where depression never knocks
Where our wildest dreams are reality
Where nothing is earthbound
Limitless...

Our mental state is decreasing daily
Our perception of the external world is blinded
By our hunger for pleasure and satisfaction of our needs

Cowardly avoiding all confrontation
Avoiding the evil we can't understand
The deceptions we can not stand

The discrepancy between both worlds grows
With every intoxication
We become madmen
Delusional, perverted, isolated...
Hoping for a better tomorrow
Intoxicated, disconnected from reality
Hoping for things to change for the best while we are gone

Escaping the wastelands
To safer plains of enjoyment
Scared of everything we can't control
Real life crushes us to pieces
And demolishes all irrational expectations.

We can't protect ourselves from
The inevitable sources of suffering :
The feebleness of our transient bodies...
The wrath of mother nature...
The hostility of mankind...
Which are bound to wipe us out of the map eventually.
Through all suffering, through all worshiping
Lies one indisputable factor
Time...
Time is our only rational master

No matter who we are
Where we're from
What we've done
Honest or evil
Rich or poor
Once we hear the clock ticking
It never leaves us
Like a poison it runs through our cells
Haunts our every move and thought
And one day...It stops.
In the blink of an eye, an entire life
Of memories, of joy, of pain, of suffering, of love even
Disappears into eternal oblivion
Eternal darkness.

Silence!
Close your eyes and just let go.

We are at the edge of the world
At the dawn of a new reign
Or the end of a foolish dream.
