lyrics

I have awoken what long lay asleep underground,
Searched all these years,
Without knowing we hunted it down

Trying to make up for time spent in the lost and found,
Creating monsters is the only way I know how

Savour the warning signs, before the world ignites

I have grown tired of being tucked in safe and sound,
Broken machines rust by highways like salt to the ground

This life is just one short hour,
It doesn't always shine but it's mine

Savour the warning signs, before the world ignites

I have awoken what long lay asleep underground,
Cogs turning gears, spinning wheels,
Slowly turning us round
