Victims Of The Modern Age – Cassandra Complex lyrics

[Russell Allen:]
You are a beautiful woman in a beautiful world
But your world is gonna die
I have seen the human race
Drop dead in the blink of an eye

[Floor Jansen:]
You created this dream out of bits and pieces
Filed away in your mind
You're caught inside a fantasy
But we'll find the truth inside

[Russell Allen:]
You gotta hear me out, though you wouldn't understand
I came back to the past
I have come to save our world
Time's up, so we better move fast

[Floor Jansen:]
I want to help you deal with the rage you feel
It's still not too late
You created your own world
But it's starting to disintegrate!

[Damian Wilson:]
Cassandra complex, everlasting scream
We can change the future but we can't change the past
Cassandra complex, ever-changing dream
We can shape the present but we can't make it last

[Russell Allen:]
I think you may be right, I'm insane after all
This is all in my mind
I just want to stay here with you
Leave the bad dream behind

[Floor Jansen:]
No, I remember you now, guess I've always known
Yes, it was me in your dream
I won't accept that we cannot change
The dark future you have seen!

[Damian Wilson:]
Cassandra complex, everlasting scream
We can change the future but we can't change the past
Cassandra complex, ever-changing dream
We can shape the present but we can't make it last

[Dan Swanц:]
The planet is dying, pollution of sea and air
The people denying the death of the atmosphere
The planet is crying, the rape of ecology
The people relying on the rise of technology
And now they have to die!

[Damian Wilson:]
Cassandra complex, everlasting scream
We can change the future but we can't change the past
Cassandra complex, ever-changing dream
We can shape the present but we can't make it last


8. It's Alive, She's Alive, We're Alive

[Dan Swanц:]
Man is declining, man is dying out
Generation of despair
Man has no future, man is crying out
Echoes in the empty air

[Russell Allen:]
Mother Nature's striking back, protecting her domain
The last generation fades away
[Floor Jansen:]
We're the generation of despair
[Damian Wilson:]
But we must not give up hope, for man can be revived
It's alive, she's alive, we're alive!

[Dan Swanц:]
Man surrenders, man is giving in
Our world is breaking down
Man has no tomorrow, man has died within
This is our final hour

[Russell Allen:]
Mother Nature's changing course, preserving her own home
The last generation's on it's own
[Floor Jansen:]
We're the generation of despair
[Damian Wilson:]
But we can't give in to failure, man can still survive
It's alive, she's alive, we're alive!
