Leave Yourself Behind

The fading sun
Signals at last the final hour has come
You're the last one-eyed man in the kingdom of the blind
And it's time to move on and
Leave yourself behind

Those old childhood dreams now shattered like glass
Hopes and ambitions consigned to the past
Dark angels are coming and the clocks will unwind
Now it's time to move on and
Leave yourself behind
Leave yourself behind

How many warnings did mankind ignore?
All that scheming and striving, what was it all for? 
Did you really all think you would get out alive? 
That one special species destined to survive? 

Your hubris your pride your boundless arrogance
It's all come to this and you haven't a chance
Your heroic feats are just games of the mind
Just surrender now and 
Leave yourself behind
Leave yourself behind

Surrender now and
Leave yourself behind
Leave yourself behind

I see you still plotting, prepared for a fight
Your stubborn and stupid mad quest for the light

Why won't you
Why won't you
Why can't you

Leave yourself behind
Leave yourself behind
Leave yourself behind
Leave yourself behind
