about

This song was originally released in 2012 as a Bandcamp-exclusive single in a slightly different form.

lyrics

Fear is in the air
Carried on the breeze
A glowing ember
To a grove of trees

We fan the flames
And sing proud songs
Never asking
If we could be wrong

‘Cause when we welcome lies
Just to win the fight
The truth becomes
Hard, hard to recognize

Crowds in the street
Don’t know who to blame
They battle each other though
Their enemy’s the same

Told what to think
We go along
With somebody’s game
Where we’re the pawns

‘Cause when we welcome lies
Just to win the fight
The truth becomes
Hard, hard to recognize

‘Cause when we welcome lies
Just to win the fight
The truth becomes
Hard, hard to recognize
We forget in time
How to open up our eyes
