Rising Of The Sun

This song is by 7 Generations and appears on the album To See The End (2008).

Another culture is crushed by our uncaring hands
Another acre falls beneath the treads of this brutal, heartless empire
As we pillage the world, searching for a dream within the nightmare we made

But I dream of standing on the top of the wreckage of these dividing walls
And I dream of the day these chains break from around our bloody, mangled wrists

As our arrogant pride blinds our foolish eyes
And as our luxury corrupts our selfish souls
Another's life is stolen by the horrific plague our mislead longings have fed over all the years

But I long to see the end of this oppressive, cut-throat hegemony
And I long for the day when all eyes can finally open to see the sun of freedom rise
And cast out this darkness that stretches without end

We are slaves bound to the oars that row us into damnation
Lamenting our lives of bondage while holding the key to freedom in our hands
We are the tortured servants of a murderous master, starving as we steal to feed
The belly of the beast, and I'm left standing on the outskirts of sanity
Frantically screaming for the rising of the sun.
