lyrics

i have wished upon the stars
to the dead lights from far beyond
and all the heavens seem to shine
from what the gods have left behind

ours are the wounds created by sorrow
damned broken dreams left drifting through fears
and yet nothing to hear them they are all fading slowly
as soon as created they start to decay

there are cries of the people some grovel in need
vital for existence and with self sacrifice
these are lined with the prayers of a mobs selfish actions
their trivial greed are heard just as loud

and all sewn together
they all seem the same

why should a wish be deemed unimportant
what has the right to help just at will
not all the wounds when ignored begin repair
so have the gods left or does struggle amuse them?

and we go on, on and on and on

no reason to live is no reason to die
no reason to stop for a lack of protection
and no reason to quit for the void of a meaning
no reason to kill for the love of a god

the ethereal plains are now deafened and silent
no angels hear hopes, no wishes come true
will, strength, and effort does not entail success
sometimes the failure is simply guaranteed

we must go on, and on, and on, and on
