Vimana Lyrics

Look at where we are, still trapped in a world of conflict and greed.

Nothing’s changed at all, still we’re chained.

Who will be the ones to set us free?

Who will be the one, the ones to set us free?

We’re not the first to have seen these lies,
Misinformation forced into our minds.
We’re not the first to have seen these lies,
Our generation lost in a cycle of endless greed.
Lost and blind, we’re on our knees.
The time has come to reawaken.

Are you happy with this? Do you feel alive?
Are you happy with this? Do you even see with your own eyes?
Stand in line, keep your head down.
Play the game, try to win the race.

Our time has come, we’ve lost our touch to the world.
It’s slipping away. Reconnect with the knowledge almost lost.

It's as if we were born to reignite the flame.

So let the wind carry this fire and burn down,
This false economy of a blood stained currency.

Burn it down,
We’ll rise from embers left behind,
Burn it down,
Importance lies within the ground,
Burn it down,
One life is born another dies,
Burn it down,
And reawaken.

Our time has come,
We’ve lost our touch,
To the world,
Reconnect to the knowledge almost lost.
Our time has come,
We’ve lost our touch,
It’s slipping away
Reconnect with the knowledge almost lost.
Our time has come.

Feeling the presence of a change, I can’t describe.
Feeling the presence of a change.
I see it with my eyes.

The tyrant’s stronghold,
Ever present and strangling,
With a blatant disregard for, human rights.
Dictating how to live,
No chance to love and live on your own,
Is this a way to live?

Closed off minds,
Trapped under a bigoted reign,
Forced to hide,
Their true being inside.

Is this a way to live?
You're judging everyone, freedom is a birth right.
This change has got to come.

Do you turn a blind eye?
Ignore what’s right in front of you,
Indifference will not be tolerated,
Corrupt police follow his every word.
(His every word)

Is this a way to live?
Is this a way to live?
Don’t let history repeat itself.

We can’t let this,
Blatant disregard for human rights,
Take the world stage,
Can we open our eyes?
Revitalise the way we think,
In this world wide struggle for equality.

We must fight for this change of mind.

Who has the right to judge us? Any of us?
Who can judge any of us, in this life?
There’s something about this life.

I won’t let you fade to grey.

Let the colours flourish in your mind,
I won’t let you fall this time.

All my life I’ve watched you slip away,
Led in the wrong direction.
Over and over I've watched you break down,
Ruining everything you’ve built.
Beneath the polluted sky,
Your colours fade to grey.
Fade to grey.

Resistance, we’ll take control and stop this decay,
Resistance, we’ll take control and stop this decay.

I won’t let you fade to grey.
Let the colours flourish in your mind,
Resistance is the saviour of our kind.
Feel the warmth from ever burning light,
Clear the haze and reset.

Realise the strength you have inside,
And see the colours with your real eyes,

This is how you were meant to see.
Together we will a make stand.
All my life I’ve watched you slip away,
Now’s the time to change direction.
Resistance is all we need,
A flood of colour to clear the grey.
Resistance is all we need,
A flood of colour to clear the grey.

I won’t let you fall this time,
So let the colours flourish in your mind.

This moment could change it all,
Forever’s just a breath away.
So choose your path,
Now’s your time to live,
A time to live.

I carry these scars with pride,
Learning from my mistakes.
There’s nothing left to hide,
Forever is just a breath away.
Embrace this time,
Hold it forever,
The only promise that can’t be kept.
It can’t be kept.

Don’t be trapped under the weight of your past.
Free yourself from the pressure deep within.

The ocean of memories is a vast and all encompassing.
Don’t drown in fear that surrounds you.
We’ll rise above the tide,
Breathe in the air
And live the life that we want to lead.
Clear of mind, clear with time.

You alone can shape the course of your own reality.
You alone can change the course of your reality.
Forever is just a breath away.

(The Nature of Consciousness, 1960)

Have you ever wondered, why you live the life you lead?
We’re running round in circles, trying to feed the system’s needs.

We’re all lost in a system, only built to crush your dreams.
So do we concede or do we endeavour to break the chain.
Can we realise our true potential, or do we live in fear.
This is a truth we all have to face.

This is the truth we'll have to face,
Empower yourself.
Realise your true potential.
Empower yourself.

So what is the real value, of a life spent earning?
Just staring at a screen.

Caught in a web of society,
Pursuing the needs of a few.
Endlessly wasting our lives,
Break down the walls of apathy and be free.
Break down these walls,
Empower yourself,
Realise your true potential,
Empower yourself.

Stop wasting the only time you have behind a desk,
Scraping by day to day just get your next paycheque,
Is this the life you really wanted to lead?
Are you human?
Or just a citizen?

So I’ve made my choice to,
Remove myself,
I’ll never be a number.
This life’s worth more than a currency.

Caught in the web of society,
Pursuing the needs of a few.
Endlessly wasting our lives,
Break down the walls of apathy and be free.
Break down these walls,
Empower yourself,
And realise your true potential,
Empower yourself.

Out on the edge, you stand alone.
A shallow, worthless hole, nowhere to turn, you’re lost within yourself.
The reflection in front of you cuts, deeper, it cuts you to the bone.

How can you do this to yourself? You’re just an empty shell. You leave me speechless.
With no remorse, you just carry on.
A self-destructive path tears you away, from reality.
Disregarding, who you are.

Lost, drifting, further away.

Out on the edge, you stand alone.
An empty shell of who you used to be.
Are you gonna give up here and now, or face this misery?
Misery.
Your inner conflict, it breeds like a disease.

How can you do this to yourself, you’re just an empty shell, you leave me speechless.
With no remorse, you just carry on, masking the truth with fear again.
Disregarding, who you are. Who you are.

Do you even know yourself??
Hollow existence, fragments fall away.
How can you do this to yourself? A truth to know should be plain to see.

The time has come for you to dream free.
The fragments fall away, they fade away.

Out on the edge, you stand alone. Conscious now of who you used to be.
The mirror shattered your shallow mask, no longer consumed by vanity.

Open your eyes to see the light? Feel it move across your face.
It shines from within. You’re speechless.

How did we make it this far? How did we end up in this place?
Do we know we are? Disconnected and awake.
Searching for the key, for our reality.
Oh what is it to be alive?

Endless miles, a burning hunger drives us on.
Every step is a mirage, this is not how you said it would be.

Follow this path with me. This is not how you said it would be.
Trust in the change you seek. This is not how you said it would be.
Disconnect from what you fear, to wonder what it is to be alive?

Senses awaken, its right there in from of me.
Can you feel this? This journey has become me. It’s within us all.

How did we make it this far? When did we cross that line?
Leaving everything behind.
We’ve come this far. Now I know my path.
An awakening, now my vision is clear.
We’ve come too far to turn back now.
Embrace this change, let go of doubt,
We’ve come too far to turn back now.
So embrace the change and let go of doubt, to begin again.
Disconnect from what you used to be and begin again.

To reconcile, who we are.
Reconcile, who we are.
Read the signs.

Whole? Are you whole?
Still Searching for the piece to change,
Everything about this.

Show me a sign, of who we are.
The memories fade and the piece you’ve thrown away,
Won’t be coming back.
You can’t win back the piece you throw away.
The piece that you break, you can never hold on to.
Bury me in the silence,
I am the liar and the honest man.
No matter the difference, the memories still fade away. (It still fades away)
All I see is beauty in decay.

I see the beauty in decay.
Nothing stays the same,
We grow apart in different ways.
And I’m watching it burn.

So now I see, who we are.
The memories fade and the piece you throw away won’t be coming back.
It won’t be coming back.

Soft spoken, dismantlement,
I’m asking how does this end.
How does this end,
Show me a sign of who we are.

Take me away, I bare the light within.
While I sleep, I dream of being,
Carried away. Far away,
By the wings made of the dew that awakens.

Over earth, over ocean. Take me away. Over earth, over ocean. Carry me far.

And the midnight breeze reminds me,
I’m still alive,
As I bathe in the light.
Under the moon,
My fears disappear.

Over earth, over ocean. Carry me, far away. Over earth, over ocean. Carry me far.

In the downpour,
I let the water cleanse the past,
In the downpour,
I dissolve.

Carry me far away from here.
I hope one day we find ourselves.

Out of the caverns of rain,
A light breaks through.
Like a ghost from a tomb, I arise.
We pass over distant shores, far away.
Far away, we find ourselves
Up among the clouds, I know,
That this is it.

This is it.
