Age Of Shadows (incl We Are Forever) Lyrics

We never saw this coming
Pride comes before a fall
We never heeded the warnings
Buried deep within us all

The age of shadows has begun
(Giant machines blot out our sun)
Frozen minds becoming numb
(The age of shadows has begun)

The age of Shadows has begun
(I won't accept what we've become)
We stand to lose more than we've won
(The age of Shadows has begun)

Our quenchless thirst for knowledge
Our urge to change and grow
Our need to expand the nation
Made us rise from the depths below

The age of shadows has begun
(Giant machines blot out our sun)
Frozen minds becoming numb
(The age of shadows has begun)

The age of Shadows has begun
(I won't accept what we've become)
We stand to lose more than we've won
(The age of Shadows has begun)

No more aggression
(No more initiative)
No more suppression
(no more emotions)
No more recession
(no more of all the feelings we shared that made us who we really are)
No more possessions
(No more euphoria)
No more obsessions
(No more sensations)
No more depressions
(no more of all the passions that shaped our hearts and made us who we are)

Time (time, time)
but a passageway (a passageway, a passageway)
the beginning of the end (of the end)
an end that never was (was, was, was)
time (time, time)
but a curve in space (curve in space, curve in)

we are forever (we are forever, we are forever))
Eternal prisoners in time (in time, in time)
we are forever (we are forever)
caught in our cold inertia
Longing, hoping, waiting, for no one...

Forever we yearn, forever we learn
Forever we live a lie, forever slipping by and
And forever we flee, (forever we flee)
Forever we will be, Forever is but a dream
Forever is but a scream and forever we try
Forever we die.

the spell of love wore off
the zest for life not enough
Longing, hoping, waiting, for no one...
Never enough

We never heeded the warnings
Buried deep within us all
