  • [Featuring: Jason Evigian]
  • [Hook: Jason Evigan]
  • This world, my heart, my soul
  • Things that I don't know
  • The icicles they grow
  • They never let me go
  • Scars are left as proof
  • But tears they soak on through
  • Things I've done
  • My young
  • My unforgivable youth
  • [Verse 1]
  • With land on the horizon and passion in their eyes and
  • What they think are islands are much more in their size and
  • Bountiful and plentiful and resource to provide them
  • Supplies slim, morale once so heavily inside them
  • Now steadily declining
  • Return is not an option as necessity denies them
  • With this they choose to dive in
  • Now along the shore and so aware of their arriving
  • Are the children of this land prepared to share in their surviving
  • A pageantry of feathers stands his majesty with treasure
  • Not the material things of kings that could never last forever
  • But secrets of the spirit world and how to live in harmony together
  • Unbeknownst to him his head would be the first that they would sever
  • And stuck up on a pike up along the beach
  • Kept up as a warning to the rest to turn away from their beliefs
  • And so began it here. And for five hundred years
  • Torture, terror, fear 'til they nearly disappear
  • [Hook]
  • This world, my heart, my soul
  • Things that I don't know
  • The icicles they grow
  • They never let me go
  • Scars are left as proof
  • But tears they soak on through
  • Things I've done
  • My young
  • My unforgivable youth
  • [Verse 2]
  • Ways and means from the trade of human beings
  • A slave labor force provides wealth to the machine
  • And helps the new regime establish and expand
  • Using manifest destiny to siphon off the land
  • From native caretakers who can barely understand
  • How can land be owned by another man?
  • Warns, "One can not steal what was given as a gift;
  • Is the sky owned by birds and the rivers owned by fish?"
  • But the lesson went unheeded, for the sake of what's not needed
  • You kill but do not eat it
  • The excessive and elitists don't repair it when they leave it
  • The forests's were cleared, the factories were built
  • And all mistakes will be repeated by your future generations doomed to pay for your mistreatments
  • Foolishness and flaws, greed and needs and disagreement
  • And then you rush to have the most, from the day you left your boats
  • You'll starve but never die in a world of hungry ghosts
  • [Hook]
  • This world, my heart, my soul
  • Things that I don't know
  • The icicles they grow
  • They never let me go
  • Scars are left as proof
  • But tears they soak on through
  • Things I've done
  • My young
  • My unforgivable youth
  • [Verse 3]
  • As archaeologists dig in the deserts of the east
  • A pit a hundred meters wide and a hundred meters deep
  • They discover ancient cars on even older streets
  • And a city well preserved and most likely at its peak
  • A culture so advanced, and by condition of the teeth
  • They can tell that they were civil, not barbaric in the least
  • A society at peace. With liberty and justice for all
  • Neatly carved in what seems to be a wall
  • They would doubt that there was any starvation at all
  • That they pretty much had the poverty problem all solved
  • From the sheer amount of paper, most likely used for trade
  • Everything's so organized. They had to be well behaved
  • Assumed they had clean energy, little to no enemies
  • Very honest leaders with overwhelming sympathies
  • Religions kinda complex. Kinda hard to figure out
  • And this must be the temple
  • This White House
  • [Hook]
  • This world, my heart, my soul
  • Things that I don't know
  • The icicles they grow
  • They never let me go
  • Scars are left as proof
  • But tears they soak on through
  • Things I've done
  • My young
  • My unforgivable youth
