Pushing our way toward the droves of lurid life forms
In sarcophagi floating in a foreign sea
Suddenly we have reached the shore
Flag warning do not enter
Yet we will break right past this caution tape
To find where had it all gone wrong
And though the enemy fires at our fleet
Will we be led to safety?
Often I ache fiercely for a new horizon
From whence the great cliffs serenade
Perhaps off the beaten path
We'll find a new dance
Casting a stone eroding illusion to the winds
And unfurl the colors bleeding through the mist
And see if we should take up arms
To lead the world to safety
Rat droppings now cover the floor of which we can't scotch-guard
As we've ingested our own poison
Vertigo sows confusion
A virulent minefield Is laying waste prisoners to certain fate
Who cry, "Where had it all gone wrong?"
And I lie upon this ravaged beach
Wave to all that are striving to keep
Their head above tide
