Terra Infirma

Music: Viktor Jonas | lyrics: Andy Walmsley

Why wonít you open your eyes?
The waterís rising but the wells are running dry
The clock is ticking all the seconds rushing by
Counting down towards extinction

All the warnings we were given, have only fallen on deaf ears
The signs were there, but we didnít want to listen
Always so certain, that we would all be saved

Terra infirma
Hollow is the ground beneath our feet

We built our houses on shifting sands
Laying our foundations in the ashes of the promised land
We lined our pockets, and laid our plans
We couldnít stop it, not even if we wanted
Itís far too late, thereís too much blood upon our hands

How could we be so foolish, such arrogance and hubris
To think that we would never face the consequences
That we would never have to pay the price

And now itís time to pay the piper
Itís time for us to reap the storm
Itís time for us to answer
For all the things weíve done

Thereís nowhere left for us to run to, thereís nowhere left for us to hide
Thereís no-one we can turn to, no-one to save us from the rising tide

The writingís on the wall now, and the walls are closing in
The shattered sky is falling, the world is ending once again

All the warnings we were given, have only fallen on deaf ears
The signs were there, but we didnít want to listen
Always so certain, that we would all be saved

Terra infirma
Hollow is the ground beneath our feet
