A Fool's Paradise Lyrics

11. A Fool's Paradise (5:49)
Track rating :  96.7 / 100      Votes :  3     
What's become of the world - the colors
unfurl revealing a blackened haze
Conditioned to fear the voice that we
hear - calling an end of days
Millions of souls under control
like pawns to a king, led by a string, to
the final hour

Oh - Empire of the Sea, Lords of
technology that fell into the void
Oh shall it be as it was before - a
tragedy on every shore?

Is this the end of all we know -
Innocence lost so long ago
Woven in dreams - the darkest of
schemes now takes hold of our destiny
Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
living like fools - chaos will rule this
eternal paradise

Death by design, altering birth - trends
of the modern age
the wisdom of life erased from the
Earth - in a reckless rampage

Oh - Empire of the Sea, Lords of
technology that fell into the void
Oh shall it be as it was before - a
tragedy on every shore?

Is this the end of all we know -
Innocence lost so long ago
Woven in dreams - the darkest of
schemes now takes hold of our destiny
Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
living like fools - chaos will rule this
eternal paradise

Dies Irae, Dies Illa, Solvet Saeclum in
favilla

Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
living like fools - chaos will rule this
eternal paradise

Is this the end of all we know -
Innocence lost so long ago
Woven in dreams - the darkest of
schemes now takes hold of our destiny
Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
Lost in the Night - fading from sight - is
this the final setting sun?
