Sonnet 2 (And Back In Ages Past)

This song is by Crash Test Dummies and appears on the album Songs of the Unforgiven (2004).

And back in ages past, when all was dark
A whirling chaos raged across the land
Survival of the cruelest left their mark
And evil came, and shook the hand of man

The brutal rampaged on their bloody way
The demons turned to gods, and gods to beasts
Unbroken cries of pain rang every day
While colder hearts prevailed, and sat to feast

And now these times approach us once again
No more will sing the solitary lark
The cruelest have returned, and they shall reign
In choking smoke and fire and endless dark

So if your heart is in it still, then stay
Remember, though, these are our final days
