Now and Forever Lyrics

1. Now and Forever (7:45)
Take a long look at the past
To unlock a greater future
Sift through the wreckage of failures
In the hope to make things better
Like more efficient ways to kill
In the name of human progress
How to control and crush the will
So that no one dares to question

So what of the past?
And this so called better future?
If past and future don't exist?
Then where does that leave us?

Lost in a quagmire of lies
Built upon the lies of before
Echoing endless through time
These legends of false perception

Identities lie...
Built on ego and habit
Beliefs kill
Why are these institutions sacred?

So what of the past?
And there's hope for a better future?
If past and future don't exist?
Where the fuck does that leave us?

To bathe in the excrement of old
And bask in the "glory" of what is to be
I hang my head in sorrow
Because the now is too disgusting to see

The past does not exist
(Only the now remains)
The future is a myth
(Only the now remains)
The past does not exist
(Only the now remains)
The future is a myth
(Only the now remains)

Genocide was someone's now
A tool to make things better
Once a madman's torture
A vision that has ended
Atrocities are mimicked
Carried forth to this day
Only names and faces have been changed
But it turns out just the same
