Die Young – To Forget Civilization lyrics

When I die...
Spread my ashes in the sea
Set me free from humanity
When I die...
Give me back to the endless wild
Give me back to the earth we've defiled

How I long to be at peace,
To be absolved through eternal sleep
When I die, set me free from the lies
Of this culture you call civilized

Entire lives spent longing for escape
As we grind ourselves into early graves
For precious progress we lay this world to waste
Day by day, the violence is ingrained
