lyrics

I felt it within me when we were only seventeen.
I knew I'd lived for centuries, but like I'd lost a piece of me.
And now we're living like the revolution never happened.
And we're living like the revolution never happened.
Now we're living like the revolution never happened
And the irony is lost on me.

I felt her like a memory, when we were bored and seventeen.
(Now) I can't tell if she was real, or just shattered pieces of me.
And now we're living like the revolution never happened.
And we're living like the revolution never happened.
Now we're living like the revolution never happened
And the irony is lost on me.

This shattered dream is the death of our culture
I stand here screaming at the moonlit skies
I know there's peace somewhere deep down within me
But all I feel is our genocide
I know these hands built the death of a culture
Now they reach out through the silent air
I used to feel gods swirling around me
I start to feel like no one is there.

I felt hope within me. i was naive and seventeen.
I watched dreams fall like dead leaves. It corrupted something within me
And now we're living like the revolution never happened.
And we're living like the revolution never happened.
Now we're living like the revolution never happened
And the irony is lost on me.

I've lived on for centuries, perpetually seventeen
I can't tell if she was real, but she took something out of me.
And now we're living like the revolution never happened.
And we're living like the revolution never happened.
Now we're living like the revolution never happened
And the irony is lost on me.
