lyrics

We thought we were building a better future
Of which we could all be a part
Where freedom and science, could grow unrestricted
Who knew it would all fall apart

We built a city
Under the sea
Free from men and gods
All were free to do as they want
But what we built was flawed

Man's free to choose but a slave obeys
When Atlas shrugs, it’s the globe that pays
Our world can be shattered, by one lone man
In this dystopia

I wish I could tell you it was all success
That our efforts led to reward
Let our ambitions trump our humanity
Let money become our lord

The rapture hit us, like a tidal wave
And dragged us to the deep
Madness took us in this abyss
The wolves devoured sheep

Man's free to choose but a slave obeys
When Atlas shrugs, it’s the globe that pays
Our world can be shattered, by one lone man
In this dystopia
Do good for another and you will fall
Cull the parasites and you’ll stand tall
The will of adam, law of the land
In this dystopia, dystopia

It seemed so promising at the start
We freed these men from the grip of tyrants
And set ourselves apart
Selfishness is not a virtue
Compassion is no vice
I wish we’d seen it before we fell
And now we pay the price

So welcome, welcome to this nightmare
Take your gun, we’ve just begun
If we go too hard, get a little too wild
Then big daddy will come

Maybe this world, just needs good men
To care for one another, and make this end
We need your help to fix our mistakes
Would you kindly lend a hand?
