So they came, one by one, there was never any warning Bled out the stuck pig fields like it was gonna last long And I saw the whole rise, I saw the whole thing fall down And all flesh spun, a lattice of it reaching out
Oh I'm left holding my head looking down at every grave And all millennia pass, just a flicker in a wave And I've seen more villages burn than animals born I've seen more towers come down than children grow up
Cross the peaks, cross the marsh, cross your fingers for the last time And pass out the blame to someone and never step it up side And nobody's asking, "Why is your head bent down so?" There's trillions lost, I'm dreaming of a different time
I'm left holding my head looking down at every grave And all millennia pass, just a flicker in a wave And I've seen more villages burn than animals born I've seen more towers come down than children grow up
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
I've seen biomass swarm back and forth across the globe They try all manner of things just to keep it all afloat And I've seen more criminals hung than innocents walk I've seen more horrors made real than dreamers wake up
Oh Oh Oh Come now, Decider, sit down beside me Tell me my world is gone, oh
