Against the Tide

We are living in a new dark age
Where foolishness reigns supreme
Intelligence and independent thought
Are all but discouraged
It would seem

But it falls on each of us
To choose our own way
Will we rise above
This endless malaise?
Or stay here where it's safe
Until our last days
The choice is ours to make
But I must confide
I will always go against the tide...
Against the tide!

But even in this new dark age
There are those who blaze their own trails
And pay no regard to the foolish masses
They try
But they will surely fail
They will surely fail

But it falls on each of us
To choose our own way
Will we rise above
This endless malaise?
Or stay here where it's safe
Until our last days
The choice is ours to make
But I must confide
I will always go against the tide...
Against the tide!
