Versuri Anachronaeon - The Futile Quest

Album: Anachronaeon - The Futile Quest for Immortality

You all wish that you could leave a trace
Oblivion will devour the human race

A tyrant dies, another tyrant takes the throne
A historic triumph is carved into a stone
Blood is shed to obtain domination
But Death is watching through the eyes of a future king

You all wish that you could leave a trace
Oblivion will devour the human race
The sun will die down - all will be lost
The achievements that you made at any cost

Behold! Your buildings are falling to the ground
Let this be told! Your head is removed without a sound
History repeats itself! Another tyrant claims your throne
Memento mori! Now you are nothing but a pile of bones

The lives you destroyed, the things you did
Was it worth a name in the human history
The life your lived, always watching your back
Paranoid - just waiting for the next attack

[Chorus:]
Dreams of greed will blind you
And know that Death will find you
Though mankind will never see
it's a futile quest for immortality

Your father died and you inherited his business
You feel you have to prove him wrong even in death
You treat your staff like s**t, just to make an extra buck
You must be proud of what you have become

You all wish that you could leave a trace
Oblivion will devour the human race

Behold! Your empire is falling, your stocks are worthless
Let this be told! Your failure is documented in the press
History repeats itself! A ruthless businessman takes your place
Memento mori! In the end we'll all become a pile of bones

The lives you destroyed, the things you did
Was it worth a name in the human history
The life your lived, never looking back
Obsessed by proving yourself to your dad

[Chorus:]
Dreams of greed will blind you
And know that Death will find you
Though mankind will never see
it's a futile quest for immortality
