We are

Take a seat turn on TV Armageddon is about to start
The wind howls and whispers manic chaos from the dark
You can't always lead the Universe where it wants to go
Creation is more complex than any species can know

The dark chaos has its Hitlers Kaisers and Husseins
Despots all growing seeds of minds of the insane
The lies the madness are evident all around
The babies starve and cry the sky is falling down

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

The leaders are liars hiding behind shiny TV screens
It's quite a spectacle the Universe has already seen
What's in the mind behind the eyes of Cydonia on Mars
Does he really know you're on his bright blue star

Humans keep doubling the heat of increasing volcano floes
The Earth trembles and vibrates from atomic chamber hallows
Sea n air slashes the Earth with flooded tears of furious rage
Another disaster more human misery dominates the front page

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

Shouting and anchored in the center of a howling tornado
A moment of in-between only a Wizard can truly know
But if he reached out to turn the beast to a different path
The only way to save himself and others from the wrath

A feat speaking for the power of one soul
All of Creation's spirits have their own roles
To embrace it all in light and not darkened fear
All creatures know instinctively when end is near

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

We are the ones who make children into bombs
It's our most despicable of species' wrongs
You only give a tiny fraction of the creation seed
God made it flesh n bone with a spirit's needs

Who are you to have it killed for childish ego lies
When your view is tortured by your own nursery rhymes
Your disbelief in the end will not stop it from coming
Even without you a new age will be beginning

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

The future comes with every blink of your eyes
Until the one moment when flesh n bone dies
Now time no longer defines your direction
Anywhen becomes just another destination

Can you remember the moment when you were born
When from the womb of Creation you were thrown
Returning to the sea of souls from whence you came
It's all so wonderfully different yet comfortingly the same

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

We are the ones the Universe is running away from
We are the ones turning our children into bombs
We are the ones who lie to the face on Mars
We are the ones barred from the stars

Our present is based on scientific nursery rhymes
As we speed down life in our own unique time line
Thoughts are electro-magnetic patterns fluttering in pace
Spurred by chemical reactions across a neuron's space

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

Like a whirlwind wrapping all around your head
All those words have already been said
Like a roaring tornado's screeching sound
All those ideas have all been spinning around

All storms have a central calming spot
A place of peace a pause in momentary thought
Grasp that moment and expand beyond into the night
In the middle of a tornado a Wizard holds a candle light

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

Are we strong enough to stop the coming Armageddon
Are we forgiving enough to love our way into the heavens
Are we smart enough to see that hate is an irrational fear
Are we compassionate enough to stop our children's tears

Are we brave enough to look squarely into the night
Are we grown enough to shine with Creation's light
Are we human enough to respect all that lives
Are we appreciative enough of the Universe's gifts

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation

We are strong enough to stop the coming Armageddon
We are forgiving enough to love our way into the heavens
We are smart enough to see that hate is an irrational fear
We are compassionate enough to stop our children's tears

We are brave enough to look squarely into the night
We are grown enough to shine with Creation's light
We are human enough to respect all that lives
We are appreciative enough of the Universe's gifts

We are the forsaken human generations
We are in the times of prophet's revelations
We are flesh n bone suffering our own tribulations
We are the souls pleading for our holy salvation
