Paradise Now

This song is by Abraxas and appears on the demo Outlook: Not So Good (2007).

As you walk through the ruins
Of the city you knew and loved that never stood
Now surrounded by these walls that are imposed on you
Like beasts in a cage
Families ripped and torn apart
By a machine that creates destruction in its path
Pride takes control, revenge it is well overdue
But soon you'll be in paradise

Paradise now

A farewell to a suppressed existence
This is for you my brothers in war
A farewell to a life too hard to comprehend
When a sentence to death stands for a glorious end

The end of

An unfulfilled destiny
And a hatred that fuels the pain and agony
As you say goodbye, no remorse from a world that watches you die
A better life on the other side
The other side they live in peace
On the other side, not surrounded by war torn streets
A world away but the paradise of death it awaits
And soon you'll be in paradise

Paradise now

A farewell to a suppressed existence
This is for you my brothers in war
A farewell to a life too hard to comprehend
When a sentence to death stands for a glorious end

Desperate for the relief
Longing for a sense of worth and of peace
Years in the shadows
Hiding from the torment that rains down on you

And you feel like a pawn in this game
Pushed and moved out the way
Every road, now exhausted and worn
A voice will never be heard
Suicide

To sell your soul to their cause
To give your life in their name
To live in constant decay
The soul and only way

Now you see it
The light that leads you away
And you know, to survive
Means falling deeper and deeper
Into this black hole

As you look into the camera eye
For the last time
They all, they pray for you
The martyr

Oblivious to the intentions that you keep
And the salvation that you seek
Your own mother she waits for you
Never to return

War
Genocide
Suicide
Or paradise

Paradise now

A farewell to a suppressed existence
This is for you my brothers in war
A farewell to a life too hard to comprehend
When a sentence to death stands for a glorious end

The end of
