lyrics

How free a man should be in a city of glass
How circumspect we are
When the privacy is out of sight
We've lived through hell obediently
Followed the dream of paradise
With time we gave up hope
But striving to survive one needs to adapt

Upon entry to rule
He delved into the mass fear of the unknown
And rode this wave until he gained total control
Then seized the souls
Seized the minds
Destroyed millions of lives
He pushed the world to the breaking point
To let it drift much farther after he died

In the course of time
Our little Eden grew ever bigger
And more perfect
Once the dream he had became reality
Millennium way came to a dead end
In the course of time
Our little Eden grew ever bigger
And more perfect
Once the dream he had became reality
Millennium way came to a halt

What dream a man should dream
Inside a cage of his mind
What role he's bound to play
In the thousand year plan

A man never believes when he’s told
That he's about to be destroyed
Long queues were formed
To treat the ones
Not willing to follow the road
What dreams may come and stay
Take over your world
These dreams are living hell
And we have gone much farther

In the course of time
Our little Eden grew ever bigger
And more perfect
Once the dream he had became reality
Millennium way came to a dead end
In the course of time
Our little Eden grew ever bigger
And more perfect
Once the dream he had became reality
Millennium way came to a halt

For weary centuries suppressed
Reduced and trodden
Denied a human place
Their hearts grew black
And sick of fear and hate
They sought no light
Through scars and chains
And missed the day
For weary centuries suppressed
Reduced and trodden
Denied a human place

Could it all be a bad dream or a nightmare?
It's surreal, it's just not believable
A grand absurdity
A great deception
A delusion of momentous proportions
Based on preposterous notions and on ideas
Whose time should never have come
The philosophy that destroys us
Is not even defined
We have broken from reality
A psychotic nation
Insanity passed off as logic
Slavery sold as liberty

For weary centuries suppressed
Reduced and trodden
Denied a human place
Their hearts grew black
And sick of fear and hate
They sought no light
Through scars and chains
And missed the day
