lyrics

A quest from ruin to ruin
Walking blindly through misery
Reaching for a soothing light
In the wreckage of dismal feelings
Reaching for a soothing light

It's a ruin they're after
A ruin of lies and despondency
Anything but what happens back home

Crawling as force withers
Searching for answers
And the path punishes those who dare
To ask for meaning

Searching, crawling, searching
For mere structure
Searching, roaming, lurching
Defeat is certain

Through the ruins, relentless
They still march, stubborn
Leaving behind all that remains
The reality of the ruin of their lives

Digging up the wreckage,
The remains of tragedy
Only to find their own misery
The reality of their ruined lives
And the barren waste is but a mirror of
The misery of their tragic lives

Searching, crawling, searching
For mere structure
Searching, roaming, lurching
Defeat is certain

Searching, crawling, searching
Searching, roaming, lurching

No relief
Can be found in what was
Never
Meant to calm the restless
Never
Never
One will find solace in
Nether
Made to tempt the frail
Bereft
Never

It's a ruin they're after
A ruin made of lies and lost hopes
Anything but what happens back home

There has to be more
There has to be more
Even that wasn't enough
