Silent Planet – Wasteland (Vechnost) lyrics
(feat. Nathan Mead of I, Of Helix)

We "won the War"[I];
We made a temple to thieves
Enshrining the great criminal
Who promised heaven without God[ii]

If we had sight to seem
To see the seven seas
Could cease to be or freeze in me
We'd shake this sudden sundering
And subsequently cross the strait[iii]
And traverse the wastes[iv]

We'll beat our rifles to shovels[v]
And dig a proper grave for our sons
Who saw the end
Of God[vi]: Wasteland
The flag will fall with the walls we built[vii]: Wasteland

Apostate to the State, Witness to the Dead[viii]:
For you know only a heap of broken Image[ix]
And when you rid this earth of God
We shall shelter Him underground[x]

Fall into the coldest wastes of humanity
Darkening circles fed by deepening graves
"Death solves all problems[xi],"
Your heart is a statistic[xii]
No mother, no resistance
But still she precludes the grave

They saw the end of God: Wasteland
The flag will fall with the walls we built: Wasteland
