The Centuries – Absolution lyrics

Why do we pretend?
Like everything's fine...
Like nobody dies for something we don’t even trust...
Like no one cries tonight...
Someday we'll be gone and what's left of us?
No, you can’t imagine this world without those you love
But always pretend that nothing happens around
Like nothing can change your life
Lies of the centuries...
Everywhere we look
In everyone we know
In every book we read
In every song we've heard
There are no enemies but fools
Sleep my child everything is alright
I’ll always be right here to drive away your fear
And nothing will make you cry
Strength through hope!
Hope through faith!
