In this world the gods have lost their way

Can’t keep this picture from out of my mind
This fear hand in hand crossing innocence, time
Surrounding creation they caught in a trap
The youngest offenders will witness confusion

They driving so fast not a care in the end
Escaping collision every twist every bend
When you’re young invincible nothing to lose
Keep seeing this picture standing in a circle
The gods have forgotten to switch on the light
Who’s lost in the dark will crash in the night

These lessons we’re living the lies of the day
Expect them to honor and never disobey
Yet greed is controlling the elders display
No wonder the younger look at them in shame

The spirit of survival
Who’s teaching the hatred
The spirit of survival
Or the class of your school
The spirit of survival
The color of your money
We’re standing in a circle
We don’t understand at all

They don’t understand at all
In this world I truly do believe there is a safer place
In this world I truly do believe there is a safer place

The younger the older the wiser become
Recover misfortune this true life as one
Our genius is shining the past has all gone
What’s left is the clearest perception of one
The spirit of survival
To magnify the power
The spirit of survival
To magnify the soul
The spirit of survival
To magnify the love
We’re standing in a circle
We don’t understand at all
We don’t understand at all

In this world the gods have lost their way
In this world the gods have lost their way
