The Pursuit of Emptiness

Agonist

Band/Artist: Agonist

Album: Five

Trapped inside the impression that we are significant
Our self-indulgence spreads like the chaos of ants
What Earth is to the universe, man is to Earth
It's as simple as that
What is it that places us on top of the food chain?
What is in our bodies that deems us as kings?

I never understood the errors of mankind
Yet I played the failure myself

Cause it flows in out bloodstream
See the root of our being
The reason we believe we will always succeed

"Money can't by happiness", they say
Oh yes, it can
Who wouldn't want it anyway
Crippling society
Cause first you crawl, then you walk
Take one step at a time

What a twist
An unfortunate series of event coming your way
False accusations derive form mistakes
Mistakes you -oh so humanly- made

As timelines progress, values reverse
Your crime is applauded
Is it not allowed to be uneducated?
It it morally and politically incorrect?

The art of illusion mastered by all
Who can tell a truth from a lie?

"Money can't by happiness", they say
Oh yes, it can
Who wouldn't want it anyway
Crippling society
Cause first you crawl, then you walk
Take one step at a time

Cause it flows in out bloodstream
See the root of our being
The reason we believe we will always succeed

"Money can't by happiness", they say
Oh yes, it can
Who wouldn't want it anyway
Crippling society
Cause first you crawl, then you walk
Take one step at a time
