More lyrics. Enjoy. I envisioned it sampling the theme of "Welcome To The Machine" from the Genesis version of Ecco The Dolphin.

 

Stilts On Water

 

The peripheral vision

cuts through the mist

We fear when our homes

are sunk under the abyss

 

A beautiful mirror vista

with the dead submerged

A pristine new life hangs

over the remnants of the purged

 

Chorus:

Through the flood

Your iron lung rusts

Decayed and forgotton

Your body erupts

 

No one cares

when you've fucked us all up

 

It's not simple enough

to stand up to the accused

when the ice completely melts

the mother realizes she was used

 

The clock only knows

that the only thing you can't breathe

is a layer of your

own selfish greed

 

(Chorus)

 

I feel for us all

a virus trying to survive

But the temples give too soon

and no one is left alive

 

The coast of the neo

primordial sea

is paved with the cataracts

of what used to be

 

(Chorus)

 

We drift,

alone and afraid

70 meters above

the mother we used to love

 

Welcome to the contrivance, my friend

Get in line, do your time, stay alive

 

Welcome to the automaton, my friend

Stimulate the mind, stimulate the grind

 

Welcome to the machine, my friend

Weep into the world estuary

Sink into the burden we carry
