Fabulation Records

A generation slumbers through the war
We all celebrate the castles
built on crumbling shores
And we deny the damage done
Take another dose to keep us numb

What has chased our purpose from our minds?
Our arms were meant to gather up
sacred treasures that we find
And yet we trade our love for stones
As we limp with shattered bones

Oh
Oh
We are human
Human

Oh
Oh
We are human
Human

A billion mustard seeds pervade the winds
Blown away, lost and forgotten,
before their life begins
and yet we harvest barren land
The fruitless toil of busy hands

We try to drive our tanks through sapphire walls
Try to bring down the paradise
destined for us all
We despise
The sacrifice

Oh
Oh
We are human
Human

Oh
Oh
We are human
Human

Let’s all meet upon this mountain top
With empty hands and open hearts
Let’s all come
And simply be made one
