You know nothing about me
And care even less
How could you understand our emptiness?

You plundered our wisdom, our knowledge, our wealth
In bleeding us dry you long for our spirit
But that you will never possess

The past is now another land
Far beyond my reach
Invaded by insidious
Foreign bodies, foreign speech
With the timeless joys of childhood
Lie broken on the beach

The present is an empty space
Between the good and bad
A moment leading nowhere
Too pointless to be sad
But time enough to lay to waste
Every certainty I had

The future is a baren world
From which I can't return
Both hopless and material
It's retched spoils not my concern

Shinning like an evil sun
As my childhood treasures burn
Shinning like an evil sun
As my childhood treasures burn
