Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Just a step cried the sad man
Take a look down at the madman
Theater kings on silver wings
Fly beyond reason
From the flight of the seagull
Come the spread claws of the eagle
Only fear breaks the silence
As we all kneel pray for guidance
Verse 2
Tread the road cross the abyss
Take a look down at the madness
On the streets of the city
Only specters still have pity
Patient queues for the gallows
Sing the praises of the hallowed
Our machines feed the furnace
If they take us they will burn us
Verse 3
Will you still know who you are
When you come to who you are
