Fighting the Future

The realms of the past have left us now
We have entered what we may not see
No man has every viewed this
No man has every lived this
No man will ever endure this
Again

Abandoning our benevolent lives
Living out what we cannot see
Blind to all who view us
Blind to all who love us
Blind to faith that saves us
Again

To save what we must save
We must fight
To end the calls of fate
We'll do what's right
The knowledge of it all
May still escape us
But now we know that nothing
Will forsake us

The warriors of our honourable past
Are now a distant memory
No soul has lived to tell
No soul can sound the bell
No soul can live through Hell
Again

The demons rule our midnight existence
I now do fight for their resistance
I cry for war and peace
I cry for souls deceased
I cry for burried beast
Again

To save what we must save
We must fight
To end the calls of fate
We'll do what's right
The knowledge of it all
May still escape us
But now we know that nothing
Will forsake us

How can we destroy what none of us
Have never even seen to be?
The past is our own life
The past is our own strife
The past cuts like a knife
Again

Years beyond what we imagined
All is gone but our own deceit
Our future pays the toll
Our future has no goals
Our future has no souls
No more

To save what we must save
We must fight
To end the calls of fate
We'll do what's right
The knowledge of it all
May still escape us
But now we know that nothing
Will forsake us

I now know what's happening here
I know why they did what they did
I now believe what I have feared
My madness gone, my hope still lives
