Unknown

In a modern world

a cauldron of destruction

waiting for the world to see

as it fails to understand 

You rise to be seen 

but you cannot rise if you cannot breathe

With every aching blow summon strength from depths 

Don't hide in the shallows 

Through a wretched sea of blue

through a never ending trench

witnessing the turn of our time

as it burns the soil seeps red

When the leaders turn their backs 

We can only feed our heroes

knowing every pound of a drum on the wind

it's no longer just an echo

Can we talk about it?

Can we take a stone

Make it slide, turn and roll

So you never have to, never have to be unknown

Devoid of any virtue at the heart of the beast 

are systems sore beneath the pillars 

of empires hidden in ruin, beyond any recognition

and soon to be divided by the after-mathmetician

But the supposed ordinary people

create chasms in empirical design

With freedom, mate-ship and belief

For us lucky ones, the fallen do remind.

Can we talk about it?

Can we take a stone

Make it slide, turn and roll

So you never have to, never have to be unknown

At the end from in the shadows

a new light shall emerge

Beyond this armageddon

the stone will sooner turn

And the essence will linger on

beyond the old theatres of war 

but no longer haunt our lives

as the nation warms
 

'Cause we were all too wise to the world 

to be used for cannon fodder

and we were all too young

to truly understand

Can we talk about it?

Can we take a stone

Make it slide, turn and roll

So you never have to, never have to be unknown

Be unknown...

Be unknown...
