History Repeats Itself Lyrics

2. History Repeats Itself (4:19)
Follow down the spiral path you take
restarting from scratch. devoured and reborn.
destroyed and rebuilt.
in the steps of history's mistakes
inevitably crushed by the gears of consequence

As it was. so shall it be.
fail to change
as it was. so shall it be.
for all time

Times of strife and storms of hate you bring
stay in the dark, cover your ears, kneel in the mud
we shall keep the wheel of fate turning
familiar events, blindfolded men, stabbing the air
failure to learn, refuse to evolve. history repeats itself

As it was. so shall it be.
fail to change
as it was. so shall it be.
for all time

Build a wicker-empire,
the lamb, the wolf - both caged within.
all set for the blaze to come

Waiting for a champion to emerge
and set the machine's motion
to build and destroy once more

That which cannot change
shall live from now until the end
past mistakes are shared by all

It feeds on apathy: it bleeds the greyness of habit
and it becomes us all.

Let the snake of infamy prevail
swallow its tail coiling itself in for the kill
status quo will lead the fools astray
stagnation's the gift wrapped in deceit back to the start

History repeats itself as surely as human nature
will thrive to reach oblivion
history repeats itself hopelessly and thoroughly
towards a most gruesome fate.
