The Uphill Climb

There it goes
The last, late thread from the dream we wove
Torches burn
We move through time but we never learn
Broken down
No open lines so the whispers drown
Will it all implode?
The system reacts to the same old code

Melted hope engulfs us
That heavy stone rolls back down
The mountain, we start again
The uphill climb

Culture clash
The destinies lie in smoldering ash
Familiar sound
The voices most vile are the ones that are loud
We can’t hide
Buried heads embolden the lies
The machine must crack
The chains must break and the world must react

Melted hope engulfs us
That heavy stone rolls back down
The mountain, we start again
The uphill climb

Wake up and face it
No way to deny
Forces resist this
We must decide
