lyrics

what has become of this world we knew
where towers once stood only ruins now prevail
every triumph erected torn down by time
dilapidation runs rife throughout this town

left to degenerate
painted glass paves the way up the avenues and streets
the bones of our buildings like ribs point to the sky
the blind eyes of broken windows stare from all around

Irreversible progression around the wheel of time

a bloodshot sky filled with a bloodied sun
casting its putrid ancient gaze upon the broken stones
where men once walked only wind now blows
the dust of ancient crumbling bones

left to degenerate
painted glass paves the way up the avenues and streets

Irreversible progression around the wheel of time
painted glass paves the way up the avenues and streets
the broken bones of our buildings now lie at our feet

disorder now holds sway
where people once lived
all traces now decayed
remains now born to dust

time has no sympathy
cannot be bargained with
what we have built will now decay
and fall to ground as dust

all triumphs come to naught
all memories eventually fade
what we have built will now decay
and fall to ground as dust

time has no sympathy
cannot be bargained with
what we have built will now decay
and fall to ground as dust

left to degenerate
the bones of our buildings
like ribs point to the sky
