Lyrics for: “Elegy of the Sleepwalkers”

A system built upon greed
A virus left to its own devices
Exacerbating its mode of destruction
Decadence from within

Perpetual lust for power
A never-ceasing desire to conquer all

Corruption thrives
On the allegiance of the ignorant
Beclouding a multitude of minds
Rendering a profound slumber
Deepening throughout the ages

Enslaving the ones it vows to destroy
Leading the sleepwalkers
Unto fiery graves

Resistance subdued
The winds of vicissitude
Vanquished to oblivion

The illusion of liberty bestowed
False nectar
To satiate their barren spirits

Inducing waking coma
Drained of all livelyhood
Derelict and bare
Bereft of future and hope
Greed thrives and lives on endlessly
An illness of our own design

Thoughts of freedom hoped for
Lead deeper into enslavement
The souls of the world in shackles
Servile to the ones we have condoned

The Truth will set them free
