The past. The future. Two sides of the same coin.


Through the mists of time we have returned to here
A world in decay lies before us and darkness looms
The return of the past in ‘respectable’ guise
The message the same through deception and travesty

What will they do when there’s no one to blame?
What will they do when there’s no one to blame?

A terrible lie we have swallowed as truth
Poison our minds, blind our reason and no one gains
Only those drunk on power and fame

Fall Down. Fall Down.
Dark times ahead...
Castigation, the conflagration fuels the hate
Raping our minds...
The downward spiral
Toxic, vile
And we reap what we sow!
And we reap what we sow!

A terrible truth before us
All light is fading into darkness

And no one gains here
No one left now to blame
The past comes back to haunt us
