Red Helen – Trading Past For Pathways lyrics

In the name of fear
Let's wage war upon ourselves
Schizophrenic, we see ourselves as separate
In the name of fear
Let's wage war upon ourselves
Xenophobic, a rainbow family
Under a banner of hate

Severed from spirit by the capitalist beast
Psychotic primates disfigured by greed
Yet hope lays inside
But are you willing to see?

I see the light of a new day falling
On the horizon
Yet if we don't open our eyes
The morning rays will illuminate
Nothing but a corpse of this forgotten world

So wake up
Children of Earth, we are one and the same
So wake up
Separate droplets in a boundless ocean
Two sides of the same coin

Proclamations of veracity from either side
Fear tactics and blatant lies
A world gone mad
Humanity traded for a label
Diversity reduced to ticked boxes

I see the light of a new day falling
On the horizon,
Yet if we don't open our eyes
The morning rays will illuminate
Nothing but a corpse of this forgotten world

These currents threaten to drown us in ash
Is this a story of hope
Or the chronicles of our descent?

I will no longer be a slave to this machine
I’m trading past for pathways
