Procession of the Fates

This song is by The Human Abstract and appears on the album Midheaven (2008).


You make your way, but don't belong.
I swear you're not the only one.
Is that what you've been dreaming? x2

There's other ways of staying strong,
Than keeping out the other ones.
I feel the light years between what you say and what you mean.
You won't get through with that phony confidence.
I hear you speak, but nothing is said.
You'll be stranded on the other side,
Endless nights upon endless nights you'll be alone. x2
You'll be alone to the grave.

There's a place in all of us, the same in everyone,
Making right the balances in all of us,
Aching, burning, growing, learning and building the world around us.
Until our lives are done, we'll share the same emotions,
Shed tears of eulogy, then turn to plant our seeds.
Still you can't hear me.

Call out your name and try to get through.
I never hear back, never hear back.
And my words became a thousand arrows,
Slicing through the endless barricades,
So that everyone on earth could hear my call,
And I watched for you.

Now I know you're putting me on, you've chosen to
Swear off the general population.

...And all those around you draw to quiet, your eyes dart across the room,
But it's just an illusion, the room doesn't exist, there's only you and I,
And it's almost like we can't fail at all,
Or maybe we've failed already... what you choose to see is real:
A cold dark world of enemies, obstacles you could never overcome,
Or a bright future ahead.

So tell the whole world and we'll start brand new,
Strip the shackles off, let me look at you.
If you can't reach out like you've been longing to,
I'll have to rethink all that I thought I knew.

Call out your name and try to get through.
I never hear back, never hear back.
Call out your name and try to get through.
I never hear back, never hear back from you.
