lyrics

Lost

Lost

They promised us a lion's share
But as we rose through the ranks we found
The bounty that they'd guaranteed
Just wasn't there anymore.
Before the thanks escaped our lips we noticed
That this Promised Land was all but run into the ground,
The rubble but the ghost of modern lore.

How do we construct our lives?
We're drowning in the answers
But the questions have been swallowed in time.
Before the shock can register
We grasp around so violently to figure who we are,
Mapping wastelands never lived before.
Where do we find ourselves

When the elders at the top don't stop but to reload?
It's a memory of plenty for a twenty-something's time.
To anyone involved there's an unfamiliar road
That must be laid by the blind and frightened left behind.

They promised us that fighting fair
Wouldn't disadvantage anyone
But as we rose through the ranks
We found a bleak and lonely plight.
We are a generation of collective isolation
Felt by all, all felt by none.

How do we find ourselves

When the elders at the top don't stop but to reload?
It's a memory of plenty for a twenty-something's time.
To anyone involved there's an unfamiliar road
That must be laid by the blind and frightened
Left lost
