lyrics

Put all your bricks
And fall down the wall
Go back to dust
Your sun will be black

Slowly we crawl
Into this blind beam of light
Fast-moving out
This subhuman night


Will we rise or will we fall ?
And if we were wasting our time
Such an enterprise implies
A terrible and possible demise


This tower of hope
Arise with our minds
We and the sun
Belong to the same kind


Beyond the grey clouds
He'll rise in His might
Purified by His light
We'll dwell as one


Will we rise or will we fall ?
And if we were wasting our time
Such an enterprise implies
A terrible and possible demise


Illusions // Collapse before my eyes

Piece by piece it // Scatters in the dirt


Illusions // Collapse before my eyes
Piece by piece it // Scatters in the dirt

The way // Fades into nothingness
Each particle of strength // Lost more or less


Where are we heading ?
To the ground we fall
Will we reach our goal,
I'm afraid I know... x2


Where are we heading ?
To the ground we fall
Will we reach our goal
I'm afraid I know...


And why are we even going ?
Didn‘t we start ages ago ?
I believed there was a way
This is what they used to say
Voices that speak within me
Told me to fly unto thee
Seeking perfection in thou
Or at least something new...

Where are we
Where are we heading ?


It's a worthless chase after ourselves
We'll only ever be halfway from the sun
Now here we are


Now here we are
Lost in despair
In tears we wander
Together alone

Our tower fell, it shone so well//In the sunlight
We may have aimed a bit too high//too high

The sky is jeweled by the sun // As we are
Earth's wardens


Where are we
Where are we heading ?
