Song lyrics from the band in my head

Verse:

 

The seconds move forward somewhere,

But unwind backwards in the age of unfair

A twilight zone of unbelievable scenes

Beamed out to our world from warped T. V. screens

 

Pre-Chorus:

What next in this new dark age?

Full of misery, suffering, and rage

 

Verse:

“Burn invisible witches” is their rallying cry

Townspeople posse with their torches held high

Chasing shadows through the dark of the night

Not any proof but they are sure they are right

 

Pre-Chorus:

What next in this new dark age?

Full of misery, suffering, and rage

 

Chorus:

They’ve given new life for the days of old,

Can’t understand and my blood runs cold

Learned nothing from mistakes of the past

Screaming messiahs from the old stained class

 

Verse:

Belief in theories from beyond the black

Colors their paranoia that we’re under attack

Society’s crumbling, not from out but within

From the same mistakes we’re making again

 

Pre-Chorus:

What next in this new dark age?

Full of misery, suffering, and rage

 

Chorus:

They’ve given new life for the days of old,

Can’t understand and my blood runs cold

Learned nothing from mistakes of the past

Screaming messiahs from the old stained class

 

END
