So it begins
Our eyes torn open
Free from the thorns of doubt
Free from our selfish confine
Our, blood
Restless
Ceaseless
With open arms we stand
Before the dawn

The sun seems to have been rising
Ever since I can recall
Lending a sense of permanence
To this lying world
Your words not worth the air
Your life not worth it's weight in flesh
To hope for something more
To dream of substance
Like a million before us
Waiting to die
Like a billion before us
Waiting to die
Masochistic to think
This would be remembered, would be remembered
Sadistic, perpetuation of stagnation
There is nothing as empty
As waiting to die
We spend our lives
Wasting, as time eats us alive
There is nothing as empty
As waiting to die
We've spent our lives
Wasting, as time eats us alive
Oh
The sun seems to have been falling
Ever since I can recall
The only sense of permanence
In this dying world
Sit back and watch
As time eats us alive
Everyone who knew me (knew me)
Destined to die (die)
The marks I left upon this world
Will wash away, in time

In time
And so it ends
In time
It all finds an end
In time
And so it ends
In time
We all find an end

With broken arms
And hollow eyes
Await our return to oblivion
Embrace our last
Empty Horizon
Embrace our last
Empty

Horizons
Horizons
Horizons (Horizons)
Horizons

    This song makes me cry.. It reprents the pain of realizing how insignificant we are to the ultimate existance. But it also makes me relly appreciate just bein alive, the world is what u make of it guys, without love and hope we r doomed to loose ourselves in this word. Dont ever let others evils change who u r. All we have is each other... Just gota find the people who know this.

    Sounds like something out of lord of the rings: two towers. At the beginning of the fight at helms deep the king says 'so it begins' it reminds me of this song every.time.

    Amazing song. Literally gonna live my life by this.
    It's true. No matter what we do it doesn't matter.
    Fame
    Money
    Family

    Eventually it all comes to an end.
    But that also means live it fullest
    Embrace everything you can for what it is because it will never be the same

    Pretty much this is an anthem to nihilism.
    How truly petty our lives are. We have no point.
    It's pretty much an atheist's answer to life purpose.
    There is nothing. We are nothing. We won't be remembered or revered.
    Even if we do something spectacular, we'll be forgotten.
    Time is the great equalizer.
