The Taker Thunderbolt (If Hope Dies)

we are falling down now motion mistaken for flight ambition has betrayed us pursuit of dominance leaves us blind there are few who look below us and see the end of our path they know our world will be broken upon the rocks it will be smashed this culture, this ship of fools it's success, is it's doom we keep striving to stay aloft facing forward as we plummet why won't we listen to the voices of reason? we are all falling we are all falling down we are falling we are falling down we've bent the world to our will made ourselves the new gods of this domain accepted the myth that this is the height of life as it was meant to be lived we are falling down, plunging headfirst we are falling down, straight to the earth we are falling down, rushing headlong we are falling down, straight to the ground to those who cannot see the desolation we are facing, any heart that bleeds for this world must reveal our desperation we must abandon this failed experiment and find a civilization that can fly in the wind take heed of the warnings the pull at work upon our legs, that's gravity screaming at us the news of our end it seems to us that this is all there is no way out of this hole we're in despair grabs hold and we throw up our hands we can fight back with hope and begin again
