We're sheltered from the sunlight In the shade beneath the tree We hide behind the shadow Like an orphaned refugee The apple tree of knowledge Shed its fruit along the way The injury is fading But the hunger's here to stay Until the day When there's no, memory Of what we used to be Golden sunrise Burned your eyes Filled your dark skies Made you blind The heads all turn to darkness When the sun engulfs the sky The brightness overwhelming To the unadjusted eyes We're taught to follow blindly Like there's nothing here to see A slave to some philosophy Will somehow make you free And you will be So gladly handcuffed Enlightened from above [Chorus] With ignorance a virtue A question is a sin, Is there no remedy for the state that we are in? With knowledge on a leash It's like a terminal disease And we won't be awake to see that we are fading out [Chorus] Another day in darkness for the ones who've seen the light Broken eyes are shining in the stillness of the night They never see the beauty of the world as it is Made you blind
