Age of Ashes Lyrics
Born in submission, under the regime
Young left with shattered, remains of a dream
Big brother's watch guard, not freedom sustained
Disenchanted lineage, the future waits in vain, again

Read from the new truth, just rewritten lies
To question equals certain death, same face, new disguise
The skilled no place to grow, the sewer no seeds to sew
The artifacts are staled, by the status quo
No one said it'd be like this!

Chorus:
Sold out, you know we're down on a future
Been downsized by the counterculture
No hope, 'cause there's nothing for you
The age of ashes, balance overdue

Sold to authority, driven by profit and greed
They'll sell what you really want, save for what you need
Equality under law, won't come for those who can't pay
You can't own paradise, your government gave it away
You ain't gonna get too far!

Chorus:
Sold out, you know we're down on a future
Been downsized by the counterculture
No hope, 'cause there's nothing for you
The age of ashes, balance overdue
"Stay in school for a great career"
Was subterfuge, nothing appeared
Born you are, in the machine
The age of ashes, promise unseen

Fed remains of utopia!
