PlotEdit

The Forever put the finishing touches on their machines, bestowing biological immortality and semi-omnipitence 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 impassivity.

LyricsEdit

Age of Shadows

ϟ We never saw this coming
ϟ Pride comes before a fall
ϟ We never heeded the warnings
ϟ 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

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

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


(Unfinished)

We Are 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 intertia

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

♥ 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 is not enough

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

(Never enough)
