lyrics

When I was young,
I never seemed to feel,
The pull of gravity on my bones.
Life was a constant flow,
Carried by the force of will alone.
I remember a special place.
Follow the path down among the trees.
Our hidden sanctuary,
A theatre comes alive for our dreams.
It seems like only yesterday,
We thought our world would stay this way for good.
But time pushes relentlessly,
Corrodes the very ground where we stood.
Back, go back.
To see the deals we made,
We’ve been so renegade.
Black on black.
Out pours the tainted gold,
From the soul we sold.
Crack by crack.
It’s like a hurricane,
You can’t escape the blame.
How could we fail,
To see the devils,
In the detail?
Two decades and counting now,
Standing where the soil once kissed my feet.
Roads slice through the plundered land,
Chainsaws forced the wild into retreat.
We find our way among forgotten paths,
Down where the river used to flow.
No more than a dying scar,
A memory that few now hold.
Back, go back.
To see the deals we made,
We’ve been so renegade.
Black on black.
Out pours the tainted gold,
From the soul we sold.
Crack by crack,
It’s like a hurricane,
You can’t escape the blame.
How could we fail,
To see the devils,
In the detail?
Devils you never see,
Are stirring restlessly.
Have you seen the devils in the detail?
Have you seen the devils in the detail?
Have you seen the devils in the detail?
Have you seen the Devil's right here?
We watch as sunlight trickles down,
Squeezed by the iron grip of night.
Time waits for no-one here,
We're prisoners of the last embers of light.
I've travelled this blackened earth,
So worn, so fissured, under the hands of man.
Lacerations scour the land,
Lash marks on the backs of the damned.
Back, oh, back.
To see the deals we made,
We’ve been so renegade.
Black on black.
Out pours the tainted gold,
From the soul we sold.
Crack by crack,
It’s like a hurricane,
You can’t escape the blame.
How could we fail,
To see the Devil's,
In the detail?
