lyrics

Long live the sacred years
That live on in every breath of air
There’s a voice inside of all of us
Singing prayers of the fates we’ve shared
We made irrational plans
And carried them out rationally
Moving ships over mountain sides
And our empires over seas
In all endeavors
It’s the architecture that survives
In history
People tend to recognize the statues
Not the slavery

I am nature’s bird of passage
I don’t remember
Who I really am
And like a sphinx
I’m born a prince
I make my kingdom everywhere

We’ve burned the candles at both ends
For a fair crack of the whip
With no solid ground to rest our heads upon
We slept through the eclipse
After a meaningless battle
The trenches, they still remain in place
We’ve solved the furniture
But the fog conquers all of space
Within all corners of diversity
I’ve searched for unity
But my memory
Is just a tiny crack
Against cruel eternity

I am nature’s bird of passage
I don’t remember
Who I really am
And like a sphinx
I’m born a prince
I make my kingdom everywhere
