Lycris

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds-
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become-
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone-
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done-

Now we are victorious, we’ve become our slaves-
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave-

Have you seen the writing on the wall?-
Have you seen that writing?-
Can you see the riders on the storm?-
Can you see them riding?-
Can you see them riding?-

Holding on to fury is that all we ever know-
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show-
From Hollywood to Babylon – holy war to kingdom come-
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done-
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear-
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear-
You’re just too blind to see-

Have you seen the writing on the wall?-
Have you seen that writing?-
Can you see the riders on the storm?-
Can you see them riding?-
Can you see them riding, riding next to you?-

Have you seen the writing on the wall?-
Have you seen that writing?-
Can you see the riders on the storm?-
Can you see them riding?-

Have you seen the writing on the wall?-
Have you seen that writing?-
Can you see the riders on the storm?-
Can you see them riding?-
Can you see them riding, riding next to you?-
