We Are Forever (01011001) Lyric Video

Age of Shadows is the first song on the first disc of 01011001 and the first song of the entire album. Its length is 10:49. It is followed by Comatose.


PlotEdit

The Forever put the finishing touches on their machines, bestowing semi-omnipotence on themselves and ushering in the Age of Shadows as their sun is blotted out by the towering structures. The younger Forever question the wisdom of abandoning individuality, and lament their own passivity.

The binary, on/off and yes/no passages are binary representations of ASCII strings "help", "forever", and "sos", respectively.

LyricsEdit

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

[Forever ☯] The Age of Shadows has begun
[Forever ®] Giant machines blot out our sun
[Forever ☯] Frozen minds becoming numb
[Forever ®] The Age of Shadows has begun

[Forever ☯] The Age of Shadows has begun
[Forever ®] I won't accept what we've become
[Forever ☯] We stand to lose more than we've won
[Forever ®] The Age of Shadows has begun

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

[Forever 🕈] No more aggression
[Forever Ω] No more initiative
[Forever 🕈] No more suppression
[Forever Ω] No more emotions
[Forever 🕈] No more recession
[Forever Ω] No more of all the feelings we shared that made us who we really are
[Forever 🕈] No more possessions
[Forever Ω] No more euphoria
[Forever 🕈] No more obsessions
[Forever Ω] No more sensations
[Forever 🕈] No more depressions
[Forever Ω] No more of all the passions that shaped our hearts and made us who we are

We Are ForeverEdit

[Forever ⛧]
Time, but a passageway
The beginning of the end
An end that never was
Time, but a curve in space

We are Forever, eternal prisoners in time
We are Forever, caught in our cold inertia

Longing... hoping... waiting... for no one...

[Forever ♡]
Forever we yearn, forever we learn
Forever we live a lie, forever slipping by and
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)

Forever we try, forever we die
