Crippled Black Phoenix – House Of Fools Lyrics

Well they served it up and you swallowed it whole
A fateful tale that has oft been told
Of truth and fear and how you lost control

Of chemical pulses in your nerve domain
The simulacra of a futile game
A finger on your trigger, yeah you just got played

While you went all in on a winner
And a cause to save the ignorant and innocent were all betrayed
They sold you down the river and they all got paid

Is this to be our fate?

It's like a dream from which we never will wake
A flowing stream, we're swept along its wake
Slumber on my son into the incessant sun

Blackened mirrors for opaque minds
A curse in disguise for the neophytes
The exultant horde bows to the umbraphile

Feel the crust from your world-blind eyes
These system need chaos if they are to survive
Or forever these people will continue to thrive
Fill your world with light!

It's like a dream from which we never will wake
A flowing stream, we're swept along its wake
What will we become beneath the incessant sun?

Though she is tossed by the waves
She does not sink
She will not sink

We will not fall
We cannot fail
