Visions Of An Aging Race

Visions of an aging race, starlight reaches your face
In a venture to overcome
Driven though deaf and numb
In a blackened vacuum lie
With vengeance and disguise
Blood as poison as wine, under sacrificial skies

Under sacrificial skies
Visions of an aging race

Instructed to carve a path
Through destruction oh and wrath
Mankind without wisdom is like a weapon to the blind
The struggling of humanity, always seeking to find

Under sacrificial skies
Visions of an aging race

While the children dance and play
All of their toys will be taken away
To be punished not for their innocence
But for their greed and doubt
For negating what life’s all about
Under sacrificial skies

Oh… no, oh… no
