What is history? It is ours
We’ve lived it, we’ve made it, we’ve surpassed it
What is memory? It is time
Time lost, time fought, time spent; constantly trying to live....

What is history? It is ours

We’ve lived it, we’ve made it, we’ve surpassed it

 

What is memory? It is time

Time lost, time fought, time spent; constantly trying to live

 

What is the reason? What is the pain?

All has become obsolete in a future founded on strife

 

Ancestors…would scream; Martyrs…would cry

Theirs were the chains bound in misery, preserved by lies

 

What is faith? A thing born of fear

Once was it held precious, above all, near and dear

 

What is history? It is forgotten

What is now? A time to remember

*

What is the truth? Our roots were severed

What is the fallacy? We had a choice

What is our shame? We lost our standing

What is our pride? We’re taking it back

*

The history of us is a dark sea, filled by blood and savagery; it washes upon a shore strewn with bones, of fallen kings and desperate slaves

*

Ours is a destiny written long before, the covers were named and bound

*

The history recalled now has been tamed, by measures sparsely played, by lazy hands, un-calloused, clean; dismissive in their ways

*

What is this? A wake up call, for sleeping infantiles

What are you? The product of, the scourge of history’s bowels

 

Remember now the time we’ve lost, the time we’ve fought and spent

Remember all the memories past, and how your history went
