Golden Age

Album: New Constellation (2013)
  • A decade in the wilderness
    How’d we ever come to this
    Took all we had to just survive
    No time left for asking why

    Saint Virginia saved your life
    An angel and a kitchen knife
    When the devil tests your will
    You kill who you have to kill

    God loves a madman
    But I wore his patience through
    It’s too much to ask of anyone
    I could never be as strong as you
    I could never be as strong as you

    All we are is vanity
    Comics playing tragedy
    I traded in my sanity
    For a dream that soon abandoned me

    God loves a madman
    But I wore his patience through
    It’s too much to ask of anyone
    I could never be as strong as you

    Walls and barricades surround our golden age
    We will return again
    Some day
