Title track and first single of The Modern Age LP

lyrics

The Modern Age (Champion, Phu)

Time, measurement of knowns
Lust to feel controlled
Oceans held by stone
Calm and counting

Belief in ours and ours alone
Kings upon their thrones
Etched into the loam
Looking down

When the cracks begin to spider
And blood spurts out like water
The specialness of knowing
Dissolves with all our bodies and our souls

Faith, statues holding crowns
Glass and steel towns
Sand when broken down
Losing sight

When the steam that pushed us forward
And set the wheels in motion
Pulled cities over oceans
Sterilized the dangers of
The risk of being human
Entitlement of doing
Crusades with nothing proven
And never see the exit signs ahead

The quiet of the silence
Not absence but enlivened
A long goodnight to violence
Built upon illusion of control
