Energy Of Slaves

from Failed State by The Ugly Facade

lyrics

Shadows on the wall
Stuck in our caves
Machines dancing in harmony with their masters

Waking to the fire
The energy of slaves
The dream violently burning in the disaster

No one can help
No one can help
No one can help
This is something you can live through

No one can help
No one can help
No one can help
This is something you can get through

We built a world where every thought was onscreen
Demanding regimes to change faster
But in our youth we were too quick to build the guillotines
Cause winning was all that ever mattered
Off with our heads!

No one can help
No one can help
No one can help
This is something you can live through

No one can help
No one can help
No one can help
This is something you can get through

There was a time when all compassion dissolved
And nothing got solved
The world had devolved turning backwards
No one held to account for all the death and all the despair
The pace of extinction tiptoeing faster

No one can help
No one can help
No one can help
This is something you can live through

No one can help
No one can help
No one can help
This is something you can get through

God bless a miracle obscene
The bottomless greed, the would-be kings
The country on fire that pulses with youth
The disparate wealth and the failing of truth

(Writing on the wall again)
(Make our mother great again)
(Survival is my only friend)
(Terrified of what may come)

And I'm standing in line
And I'm learning to wait
For the bitterness of nothing
And I
I cannot stay

And no one can help
I’m so stuck in self
I prayed for a crisis
And god answered well

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
