  • It's been million years and yet this bulb is my shelter.

    Hardly had I opened my eyes I joined their ranks:
    Colors are faded away, sounds suspend in delay.
    Hey, mother, tell me
    Where is my home?!

    I don't belong to this race,
    Nor to this planet,
    Nor to this galaxy!
    Here bottomless greed dances with
    Eternal stupidity!

    They upgrade, they descend every hour.
    A mother gives birth to her child to self-devour.
    Any beat of life, a sparkle of spirit they seem to hate.
    As soon as beauty is born
    They discriminate!

    And no respect to their race,
    Nor to this planet,
    Nor to this galaxy!
    And no desire to uproot their greed
    And eternal stupidity

    And invincible ignorance!
    Intolerable arrogance

    Am I floating down the river of insanity
    Or becoming just another part of you?
    I'll return, I'll come home where they wait for me,
    Where the nature reins the life but not you.

    This time we trade our lives
    To experience the brand new world,
    To realize how wrong we've been all these years,
    How many wonders we could behold.

    Am I floating down the river of insanity
    Or becoming just another part of you?
    I'll return, I'll come home where they wait for me,
    Where the nature reins the life but not you. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
