lyrics

We are buried under a sky of earth
Dwellers of stone, impoverished of sun
Left alone, we are wanderers
Soon exiled to our allotted graves

All our dreams, you've made them heresies
Encased in stone and wrought within the earth
You've told us all, everything is in eye's grasp
But there must be something past this earthen crown

We once dreamed a land of blue sky, enraptured in the sun
of freedom from these shadows, but now we've seen the truth
Locked in a cell, we are alone; this can't be all there is
Born in this place, but never past these walls

I won't accept your "truth," there must be something more than this
When the folly comes, it will tear you to pieces
With the following of time, it's a loyal way to burn
And in the end you'll see it's all in vain

If truly there's no sun, no sky above this void
Then we are damned in this world, damned to fabricated light
Either you've blinded our eyes, or you've broken through our veil
Regardless, the result remains the same

Even if your words a true, I will choose to live the lie
Fabricated it may be, it exceeds in every way
Call me a child, call me a fool, but I will live with my eyes closed
And if prophet you turn, then life is a trifle end
