Lyrics

They're building telescopes to find
The proof all hope is in the mind
And gas, not God, is what's behind
The beginning and the ending of time
Was never sacred, never divine
Just one giant step back for mankind
Refracted light and mirrors will with chemistry and physics kill
All afterlife and miracles
Holy water wasn't holy or wine
And blind faith's just for the blind
And God leaves no traces behind
It's there out of reach
In a dream not quite broken
Like a snowflake on a beach
It awaits a breaking ocean
The will to kill's the thrill it seems
As killer teens fill TV screens
They're bringing back the guillotine
Don't it make you wanna go blind
Don't it make you wanna go blind
Don't it make you wanna go
Like a race lost on the run
Forever out of motion
Like a raindrop on the sun
Never finds the ocean
God can't make it anymore
He's playing naked on the floor
Cause no one's praying anymore
It's the beginning of the ending of time
Nothing's sacred, nothing's divine
Just one giant step back for
It's there out of reach, in a dream not quite broken
Like a snowflake on a beach, it awaits a breaking ocean
Like a race lost on the run, for ever out of motion
Like a raindrop on the sun, never finds the ocean
Never finds the ocean
