lyrics

Once upon a time, we were slaves to a machine
In the land of opportunity where freedom isn't free
Everyone's asleep, sedated - they don't dream
and it's all the same to them when it's all they've ever seen
They don't ask questions, they don't know
from the hills, we watch the show...

It grinds the gears against the bones
Chaos thrives, it's all we know
Crack the whip or haul the load
Chaos thrives, It's all we know

It wasn't long ago that we found the Shangri La
in the midst of the insanity and chaos of it all
once your mind's awake, its hard to fall asleep
if you speak up any louder, you're bound to wake the beast!
Once upon a time we were slaves to a machine
in the land of opportunity where freedom isn't free

For those who wander off and ponder
the questions they won't answer:
The Elements will guide you,
and they will always find you

Forever burns a flame by the door of Shangri La -
for those who wander off seek fire in the dark
with purpose comes a path, we learn to conquer void
for in order to create, sometimes we must DESTROY!
in the midst of the insanity that we have grown to know
we'll take you to a place where the energy can flow...

once upon a time we were slaves to a machine
in the land of opportunity where freedom isn't free

It grinds the gears against the bones
for we're it's cogs and power source
They're making "freedom" into fiction
We've left signs and clues behind
for those in search of something more
and if you find these hidden doors
then you'll find shelter in our haven,
with minds alike yet uniquely created
to manifest these vibrations
as man murders Mother Earth
we're the only ones we hurt
For we are the machine we curse but
Here's the good news, she'll forgive you
For she knows that she'll out live you
in another time and place
for we are the machine we curse
