There, on pathless heights is freedom
There, by shimmering shores is grandeur
There, beneath the stars is wisdom
Where the sunlight meets with the horizon

The silent mountain crown, the windswept melody
The river's tranquil voice, the woodland symphony
We walk in the shadows to live a concrete lie
We disregard the truth of green Earth and of blue sky

Desperately we search to understand ourselves
Freedom can't be bought, live beyond a price
Lost in the future enclosures that we built
Removed from the past, disconnection grows

Strength through harmony
Lost through apathy

Discolour the landscape
The lifeblood we forsake
Consider it progress
Decline is our success


from The World In Grey, released April 20, 2015
