Bound

The world in fire.
A time we didn’t see.
We’ve lost our only road within reality.
Remembrance of those days,
And stories we withhold.
A whitewash vision blazed with the memories, so cold.
Nothin’ more simple
Than to silence what was known.
Realize you can’t go back.
Now you’re trapped here, all alone.
Waitin’ on the nails
Of the hands of Father Time.
Don’t bother with details,
‘Cause you can’t undo this crime.

And I can’t take more unreal.
This existence seems surreal tonight.
We’ve all been bound by this design.
When Death comes, we won’t make him wait.
Just accept this permanent fate this time.
We’ve all been bound by this design.

Some days, you’ll see me
In the wasteland, once so pure.
Ask questions ‘bout how we
Got to be here, so unsure.
Cling to the ties
‘Cause I’m shackled to the lies.
No need to remind.
Yeah, I’ve heard a thousand times.

And I can’t take more unreal.
This existence seems surreal tonight.
We’ve all been bound by this design.
When Death comes, we won’t make him wait.
Just accept this permanent fate this time.
We’ve all been bound by this design.

Well, no one could have seen this.
But all beauty must die.
I’d rewind everything
For one more, final try.
Consumption led to crazy,
And crucified our souls.
I tried to carry on,
But it’s burnin’ out a hole.

And bury the forgotten.
The rotted symbolized.
A sacrificial slaughter
To see those magic dollar signs.
And where did we end up, now?
Our faces fade away.
The ones who pull our strings, now.
Cast us all away today.

And I can’t take more unreal.
This existence seems surreal tonight.
We’re always bound by this design.
When Death comes, we won’t make him wait.
Just accept this permanent fate this time.
We’re always bound by this design.
Bound by this design.
Shattered-glass design.
What happens now?
What happens now?
What happens now?
What happens now?
