There are an incredible amount of people who seek to change the things that aren't right in this world - in particular the irreversible damage being done to the planet, eg the destruction of forests and the pollution of water systems. But not all of us still believe we can do anything. With cynicism comes the feeling powerlessness. This song speaks about despair, contradiction and the inability to do enough.


i choose a world, where i can breath the air
i choose a world, where i can submerge my head in freshwater
i choose a world, where i can climb it's curves
i choose a world, where i can plant my feet firmly in the dirt

trudge frustration in the earth
i lack weakness i break easy

dark times, lie ahead of us, but there comes a time
when we must choose, between what is easy
and what is right

the air is toxic
the water is poisoned
the mountains are razed
my feet, lay in nothing but dust

i lack weakness i break easy


from All Empires Fall, released June 19, 2016
