Revelation

Pass the empty hours of day waiting for the warmth of darkness,
Try to shield your wounded eyes from the light.
Soon the tendrils of your mind will seek out the distant promise
As your senses drift away in the night.
Speaking plainly isn't done; we must all disguise our feelings,
Not show love, desire, or fright; never cry.
We should think in black and white, and avoid all complications.
We'll be easier to love if we try.
Rage is everywhere, no one is above temptation.
There's no reason to be fair -- break the seventh seal.
Nothing ever seems to change.Ê Nothing ever stays the same.
Though we long for something new, we need endless repetition;
Same old stories, same old songs, same old lies.
It's a wonder we don't scream, choke upon the contradictions
Of the fascinating schemes we devise.
Rage is everywhere, no one is above temptation.
There's no reason to be fair -- break the seventh seal.
Nothing ever seems to change.Ê Nothing ever stays the same.
Nothing ever seems to change.Ê Nothing ever stays the same.
Break the seventh seal.
Let the mountains shake and cities fall, I have no will to save them.
Yet I'll surely miss these stony eyes
And empty hearts and wasted lives in time.
Nothing ever seems to change.Ê Nothing ever stays the same.
Nothing ever seems to change.Ê Nothing ever stays the same. Revelation
