lyrics

Since the birth of the atom,
And the gravitational attraction of masses
Crossing distances that we can fathom,
I see a pattern, it's like we were destined to walk inside of this labyrinth.
But we weren't always lost. I feel it in my soul,
A sense of belonging like a sail to its pole.
A ship to its captain, a chest to its gold,
A servant to its master, an heir to the throne.
This is our time, the time to make a difference.
The simplest of times, yet complex our existence is.
Ever so changing, forever rearranging,
It’s crazy to think what has changed since we were babies.
The tables have turned, and we are the parents.
It's apparent that one day we will inherit
All the mistakes and the hate so misplaced.
It's our place to finally spit out this sick taste.
We need to see our species as something that you embrace,
But still I see that everybody's thinking it's a race.
Allow me to illuminate-it is called the human race.
Nobody should be losing face. I won't be quick to lose my faith.
We've eaten what we can stomach. They feed us this rubbish
To keep us this punished, and try to keep us all believing in something.
Indeed, they'll see us coming. I want the people summoned,
And take the power back. We don't even need a gunman.
We stand in recital, call these countries our rivals,
And pledge our allegiance just to please all these idols.
At the end of the day is your ignorant way
Justified by the lies that you read in your bible?
Can someone tell me how no one’s involved,
From the innocent to the top of the pyramid tall?
Who's to blame? Who the hell is at fault?
When the earth is off axis, who will help when it falls?
We need to begin the search and discover the lost map.
When will we recover? It seems that we lost track.
We gotta get back. We're lacking an axis.
We carry the world upon our backs like Atlas.

We carry the world upon our backs like Atlas.
Atlas!
