lyrics

I had a vision move across my eyes; I said
I just don't get why we lie to ourselves
A painted dawn in a
A smog-choked world while the
High priests of commerce speak of markets to unfurl
I saw our mission failing
I saw our tools consume the world
I saw a system built on fire
Kill faster than it healed

I had a vision move across my heart; I know
I just don't see why I'll care when it goes
A painted dawn in a
A drowning world while the
High priests of commerce speak of markets to unfurl
I felt our instincts flailing
I saw our tools consume the world
I saw a system built on fire
Kill faster than it healed

Oh I don't know how this will end
Oh, I don't know how best to spend
The time that's left before
We crash into the shore

I had a feeling move across my eyes; I said
I just don't get why they all have to lose instead
A painted dawn in a
A post-truth world while the
High priests of commerce speak of markets to unfurl
I saw our courage failing
I saw our tools consume the world
I saw a system built on fire
Kill faster than it healed
