Consign To Oblivion

Epica


How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end

The only thing that counts
Is the prosperity of today
Most important to us
Is that our bills get paid

Our good intentions
Have always been delayed

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end
When we will stand
In front of heaven's gate
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
try to listen to your heart
No, we can't understand the universe
By just using our mind
We are so afraid
Of all the things unknown

A must we appease
Is the lust to get laid
Nothing really matters
Just devouring our prey

Our good intentions have always been delayed
Our generous acts have always come too late

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end
When we will stand
In front of heaven's gate
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
try to listen to your heart
No, we can't understand the universe
By just using our mind
We are so afraid
Of all the things unknown
We just flee into a dream
That never comes true

Low to the ground we feel safe
Low to the ground we feel brave

Oblivisci tempta quod didicisti

Open your eyes
We're not in paradise
How can't you see
This stress is killing me
Fulfil your dreams
Life is not what is seems
We have captured time
So time made us all
Hostages without mercy

Seemingly generous
Fooling ourselves
Selfishly venomous time tells

Too much thinking
Goes at the cost of all our intuition
Our thoughts create reality
But we neglect to be!
So we're already slaves
Of our artificial world
We shouldn't try to control life
But listen to the laws of nature

Open your eyes
We're not in paradise
How can't you see
This stress is killing me
Fulfil your dreams
Life is not what is seems
We have captured time
So time made us all
Hostages without mercy

Low to the ground we feel safe
Low to the ground we feel brave

We all think we're generous
But we only fool ourselves
The only thing that matters is
Our way and our vision

Selfishly we're venomous
But you know the time tells us
There is more to life than our
Higher positions, race for perfection
Better, faster
We must return to the laws of the nature
Free ourselves from madness
