Glorious

version 3:
from The Renovated Enervated (July 20th 2002) (3:16)
I don't know what the world's view is, I don't wanna know
History proves itself right and wrong, it's such vertigo
All false prophets and philosophers fill up the masses with meaningless words

I can't explain and, no, I can't complain for profanity
Even today when a phrase can't be without insanity
Just looking on with millions in pain, playing your lute while your city's in flames

What's the difference and what does it mean to the two of us
No matter what we say it will go on in lieu of us
I ain't no messenger sent from above, all I can do is ask where is the love

War and peace and war once again it's forevermore
Plumes of threatening breakers of fear crash back on our shore
Trust is illusion, illusion departs, even one's friend can be Brutus at heart

Allied together we fall at the feet of catastrophe
Snowball effect, assassination turns to mobility
We win the battles again and again but do our mirrors frame pictures of men?

version 2:
from Other Streets (December 30th 2001) (2:51)
I don't know what the world's view is, I don't wanna know
History proves itself right and wrong, it's such vertigo
All false prophets and philosophers fill up the masses with meaningless words

I can't explain and, no, I can't complain for insanity
Even today when a phrase can't be without profanity
Just looking on with millions in pain, playing your lute while your city's in flames

What's the difference and what does it mean to the two of us
No matter what we say it will go on in lieu of us
I ain't no messenger sent from above, all I can do is ask where is the love

War and peace and war once again it's forevermore
Plumes of threatening breakers of fear crash back on our shore
Trust is illusion, illusion departs, even one's friend can be Brutus at heart

Allied together we fall at the feet of catastrophe
Snowball effect, assassination turns to mobility
We win the battles again and again but do our mirrors frame pictures of men?

version 1:
from Empty Rooms (October 29th 1998) (3:21)
I don't know what the world's view is, I don't wanna know
History proves itself right and wrong, it's such vertigo
All false prophets and philosophers fill up the masses with meaningless words

I can't explain and, no, I can't complain for insanity
Even today when a phrase can't be without profanity
Just looking on with millions in pain, playing your lute while your city's in flames

What's the difference and what does it mean to the two of us
No matter what we say it will go on in lieu of us
I ain't no messenger sent from above, all I can do is ask where is the love

War and peace and war once again it's forevermore
Plumes of threatening breakers of fear crash back on our shore
Trust is illusion, illusion departs, even one's friend can be Brutus at heart

Allied together we fall at the feet of catastrophe
Snowball effect, assassination turns to mobility
We win the battles again and again but do our mirrors frame pictures of men?
