lyrics

Choices we make in the present
Always seem to chase us
We never can outrun them
Sins of the Fathers still haunt us
Limiting our freedom
We simply can’t escape them
In this time

Why is there search for truth?
Wisdom is lost on youth
Prisoners of the caste
Hope for the new comes last
What guide has eyes to see?

I trust in the dreams of the future
More than I do in the history of the past
Destiny, the savior of circumstance
Road ahead, deliverance in the path

Questions that can never be answered
Are the ones we search for
To satisfy our longing
All the burdens we’ve learned to carry
They only weigh us down
With no way to grow younger
By design

How can we ever trust
A world that seems so unjust?
The first guilty as the last
These careless stones we cast
Ripple back to our shore

I trust in the dreams of the future
More than I do in the history of the past
Destiny, the savior of circumstance
Road ahead, deliverance in the path
I trust in the power of nature
To turn us back from the brink of the abyss
Find a way, transcend to the promised land
Close your eyes, make a sovereign wish

Every moment of our existence
We’re faced with many choices
Infinite decisions
Paths we take are now the open present
Forge our own reality
Accept responsibility
For our lives….

Where is the will to change?
Afraid of the unknown strange
The only way to evolve
From the clay which we crawled
Rise up as One and sing

I trust in the dreams of the future
More than I do in the history of the past
Destiny, the savior of circumstance
Road ahead, deliverance in the path
I believe there’s more than given destiny
We can choose, unbound from the dance
Fortune’s smile belongs to the holder
Of the key that opens doors of chance
