Cities in the Distance (feat. Nirre) (Lectro Dub Remix)

from The Reimagined Future by Aviators

lyrics

The rain pours longer every night
The neon glows a lullaby
And it's haunted
Haunted with our pride
Corruption intertwined with greed
Performing interchangeably
But I wanted
I wanted to be free
A system of the absolutes
Distract to keep the people mute
And we'll all move along
But somewhere it's a different show
The re-ignition starts to glow
Far away now
They sing a brand new song

Now from the shadows
I can see their light
The lone stars shine
On the world's last night
Trapped in the veil
I've only heard their cries
The cities chanting
Their last reprise

Subsections of an institute
The work of bureaucratic brutes
They're trying
Trying to save face
But citizens of darker times
Have learned to question better lies
While they're running
Running out of space
But maybe there's one last resort
When our resources come up short
A light on the horizon shines alone
The cities in the distance live
With sanctuary left to give
Resistance soon ignites into a glow


Raise
Your hands upwards in praise
Not of the gods but rather
The human cause undying
The fear
Has held us back for years
We sold our hearts for nothing
We wasted our own time
At fault
With eyes on you all
They kept us scared and silent
And desperate to survive
The light
Grows closer every night
So we will sate our hunger
And know the world revived
