Lyrics to a song from the band in my head

Verse:
The calendar turns like a drunken horror show,
There's so much more now that some don't know
We take three steps back into the new dark age
Education is the battlefield for the war we wage
 
Pre-Chorus:
Superstition trumps knowledge, take a look around
Signifying nothing and mankind goes to ground
 
Verse:
Even more positive that we are right,
Truth and morals fade into the night
Hunting witches to blame our troubles on
Fall for a lie easier than saying we were wrong
 
Pre-Chorus:
Superstition trumps knowledge, take a look around
Signifying nothing and mankind goes to ground
 
Chorus:
 
We did this to ourselves, these nightmare days
With our belief as the price we have to pay
As the earthquake turns the pillars to dust,
Our glorified yesterdays turning to rust
 
 
Verse:
'Can't happen here," it's already begun
Gathering storm clouds block out the sun
Scary thing is, so many don't see
Fiddling Nero's play louder for you and me
 
Pre-Chorus:
Superstition trumps knowledge, take a look around
Signifying nothing and mankind goes to ground
 
Chorus:
 
We did this to ourselves, these nightmare days
With our belief as the price we are willing to pay
As the earthquake turns the pillars to dust,
Our glorified yesterdays turning to rust
 
 
 
END
