Lyrics - Uncertain Future

747 views

The last song from Celestial Extraterrestrial. Enjoy.

 

Uncertain Future

 

In this world of entropy

a final caress, do you see?

The world going up in flames...

 

We watch from afar

as the light from the last star

finally gives in to fate

 

Have we learned nothing at all?

I guess we wait for the fall...

 

As I hold your hand,

you say, "Is this really the end?"

I have no answer, for I can't speak

 

We were drawn into the clash

and with crash after crash

debris rains down from above

 

Though the heroes live to see another day

it's a shame we aren't okay

 

But in time, words leave me

as we meet secretly

to move on, down in the grave

 

Perhaps things will change

but we are so badly arranged

and we already admit defeat

 

To live is to dream once more

but what were we really fighting for?

 

(sampled from "Parade" from Paprika)

 

Translated lyrics:

 

Energy in my heart is of chemical foam
A street of taxies, worn tires, blood and flesh
Behold all that is liberty is a parody of utopia
A shining boulevard of buyers and giga-movies
Mino Depression is nonsense, La Vie en Rose is on sale
They say you should know you are happier than you realize

Dying literacy is systematically auto-killed
The formaldehyde street of buyers and hanging wires
Moisturize that dry synergy with artificial sweetener
Raining money into the high-rise mega-temples

You can not write the word 'ignorance'. The future is on sale
Push aside and laugh at the karmic tale saying it’s superstition

Now it is coming to you, giving off a stench and devouring your shadow
The parade of terror is coming, and it is in your name

The roaring MC becomes a lethal dose for the public
On the street of cripples, selling diamonds and battered Tao
Behold all that is liberty is a parody of utopia
Rely on SSRI and say "hi-ho" in the coffee shop

Minor theory is flimflam, hedonism is on sale
It is non-repayable, it has reached the point of no return

Now it is coming to you giving off a stench, devouring your shadow
The parade of terror is coming, and it is in your name
Now your shadow procreates as if the ground is being smothered
The parade of lunacy is coming, and it is in your name

There's definitely truth in there. You are a really good lyricist! I'd like to actually hear this in a song one day. :happy:

Hopefully that day will come in the future!
