Modern Monuments

lyrics

Monuments of waste,
Have been left behind,
By a failed generation,
Who chose to stay blind.

A generation,
Who lived by the words,
"Ignorance is bliss,"
It's no fucking wonder how it came to this,
It's no fucking wonder how it came to this at all...

Now the choices that we've made,
Have come back just to fucking haunt us.
Oh how much we've thrown away,
Without knowing just where away was.

BLEGH

Oh how,
We died in vain,
By our own hands,
No one to blame,
No one to blame but us now.
Oh how,
We died in vain,
By our own hands,
No one to blame,
No one to blame but us now.

No one to blame but us now.

No one to blame for...

For the choices that we made,
Have finally come back just to haunt us,
Now we are buried beneath,
All we thought we had thrown away.

We are nothing,
More than parasites,
Spreading and destroying,
Everything that we touch.

We are nothing,
More than parasites,
Spreading and destroying,
Everything that we touch,
And we won't stop,
Until every last one of us is dead.
We are nothing,
More than parasites,
Spreading and destroying,
Everything that we touch,
And we won't stop,
Until every last one of us is dead.

BLEGH
