In Decline

No justice to be found here
Our leaders are all blind

We've razed our sanctuary
Our world is in decline

The time for peace and love has passed
Now we shall raise our swords
We should take solace in our hopes
Instead we go to war
I have seen enough to know
That the strong are becoming weak
And even the brightest among us
Know not the words they speak

We've razed our sanctuary
Our world is in decline

No light will shine upon us
The stars are out of place

Billions of frightened people
Are drifting, lost in space

No comfort to be found here
In our collective mind

We salt the lands we walk on
Our world is in decline

The time for peace and love has passed
Now we shall raise our swords
We should take solace in our hopes
Instead we go to war
I have seen enough to know
That the strong are becoming weak
And even the brightest among us
Know not the words they speak

We've razed our sanctuary
Our world is in decline

We salt the lands we walk on
Our world is in decline
