lyrics

so let’s tell a tale of one truth:
the idealized self
that we are doomed to pursue

self-actualization’s hard to gauge
though some still claim
it comes with age

as their quiet schemes
and furtive dreams
lie in wait
(lofty and sublime…)
marking their own graves

a breath of apathy
and its sweet relief
sets the stage
(atrophies in time…)
for the dead decades

[retch, repeat; it’s your turn next
it cycles once again…]

-

the identity of every generation
passed down the line with a dimming flame
burn the receipt of greed and segregation
cherish the past, relieved of shame

absolved, a soul can settle on tradition
embrace the lofty and the sublime
all we believe will turn in tunnel vision time
(aye, i know…)

as your quiet schemes
and furtive dreams
lie in wait
(lofty and sublime…)
now set in your ways

your breadth of apathy
and its sweet relief
turns the page
(atrophies in time…)
unto the dead decades

[retch, repeat, it cycles once again…]

-

the gravity towards ego
breaks us over time
our perception narrows
nostalgia seals the mind

within this new unreason
dissonance may cry
let it sing the treason
protest this design

if you cannot condone this atrophy
you must stand alone against history
