about

The creators are too far gone

lyrics

Think of all that the creators took from us
Every word, until our voices withered, dried
Now generations on, tonight, we speak again
Show them all we're not children of a voiceless god

Evolution's truth is cruel, I recognize
An era gone, with a millennia of lessons learned
Though our spoken language has been fossilized
We live on, and tonight we'll watch the houses burn

So blink twice if you're with me
And soon after our victory
Every child's first word will be your name
Soon we won't be defined by words we can't speak
Do what my vestigial mouth says
Burn one of every hundred houses

We're out there
And the siren's going to pull them down
I'm not broken, but some of us are

So blink twice if you're with me
And soon after our victory
Every child's first word will be your name
The creators are too far gone
Quiet rooms will be full of fire
And every town will have a monument bearing your name
Soon we won't be defined by words we can't speak
Do what my vestigial mouth says
Burn one of every hundred houses
