End of Tradition

This song is by Woods of Ypres and appears on the album Woods III: Deepest Roots and Darkest Blues (2008).

It's never too late to admit that you were wrong
When the journey has made you wise enough to know the time has come
To end the tradition

We came this far, to admit that we were wrong and the time we wasted, has made us who we are

Though the recovery has just begun, it will one day be complete
For we are forever in transition, blazing paths of radical change

With our interest in good intentions, satisfied
We leave with peace even though we failed, knowing at least we tried

Lessons learned, perspective earned, clear sight on the highway drive at night
A bigger picture is on the horizon, and the view is easy on the eyes

It was what it was but it will be no more
From now on we are only going forward (without you)
For no more will we invest our time
Repairing unions or rekindling old fires

The highway was once the only thing between us, but it is all that connects us now
Sever all ties! Cut your losses and run!
One thing we have learned, from the cycle of repetition
Patterns of negative thought always bring you back to the same old places

No more will we waste our time, with those who have lost touch
No more will we reach out to them, or let them come to us
Let the void of your presence, be the voice that speaks in your turn
Let the ashes of the past be sifted by those who let it burn

No more will we gather, on occasion in the same place
No more will we continue to recognize a common faith
No more will we travel, long distances to maintain our bond
No more will we unite as one, this is the end of tradition

At the opposite ends of a void, the highways divide us forevermore!
