Lyrics:

As the virtues of the old and brave
Lay side by side in cross lined graves
The values and ideals are left behind
Please save us now, we’re at the turning point
The victory will echo through the hollow

Without the words we never say
Meaningless and shallow ‘til the day
We take our place in history
Notions of humanity are grey

We bleed out contradiction, laboured through with blind ambition
Tailored for the birthright
Their collars white
Success through exploitation, filtered through with segregation
Where is the foresight

The lessons quickly sidelined but
How could we let go
Of images in our minds
This ignorance bestowed
These seeds of hatred
We’ve come to know

Old stories told, with the horror they unfold
Their dignity, their bronze and hard earned
Silverware was sold
We can’t go back against the sacrifice
The crimson stain on history will
Wash away

Without the words we never say
Meaningless and shallow ‘til the day
We take our place in history
Notions of humanity are grey

We can’t go back, We can’t go back
We can’t go back, We can’t go back

We can’t go back, We can’t go back
We can’t go back, We can’t go back

Without the words we never say
Meaningless and shallow ‘til the day
We take our place in history
Notions of humanity are grey
