The Ascension (Philmont)

Of course I would rather not try to explain Where all this is going I never thought we'd take it so lightly The high and the mighty Will all fall the same Of course I would stick to my story An obvious warning to heed to the signs Then everything, it crumbles around me The last call is sounding I'm boarding the train And time, it won't stand still Dreams will slowly hide Beneath the dust that settles on your life Your life The truth is we'd rather not listen Aborting the mission, abandoning hope It's sabotage, we scramble the signals Give up our positions Surrender to fear Running blind, escaping the future The winners and losers are called out tonight You can't run, can't hide in the back seat The sky is collapsing The future is here And time, it won't stand still Dreams will slowly hide Beneath the dust that settles on your life Sit with me, we'll watch the stars collide The flaming embers wrapped in smoke Will shower you and I And as we burn, our bodies leave their posts We'll ascend the charred remains And depart from all we know You and I will survive
