Protest the Hero - From The Sky Lyrics


Progress versus risk
Chaos and control
A sluggish titan’s brisk
Descent international

A completely unremarkable excursion across the ocean
Caught the eye of the world
Technology expanded rapidly with great devotion
From the sky, from the world at large

There’s fire on both sides of the door
And fire’s a good disciple, but wicked master

Paralyzed in time
Colourized and brilliant
The future paradigm
Would prove to be resilient

A completely flawed analysis of future tech’s tenacity
Caught the eye of the world
As their hopes and dreams took fire right before their eyes
Winds of change blow the whole worldwide

With the swiftness of a flash
It was captured in a photograph
When transitory memory became permanent
And we remember always
As they pour us into molds
We remember because
We’re malleable as gold

Fireball and tower
Conceal the swastika
Which might have served to sour
Our desired erotica

A completely overlooked detail
Omission is deception
Retract, denied by the world
Emblazoned on the rudders
And plastered on the tail
It might have caught the eye of the world

The biggest things that I cannot remember
The little things that I cannot forget about when I’m alone in bed
A picture might make my memory better
No matter how much I might regret the fact, it gets into my head

So take my picture, I’m decomposing
Make it a solemn silhouette
Cause this time is no different
It might help you not forget my feeble voice

So take my picture as I burn
And print it out for all to see
Because words are wind
But image impacts our collective memory

So take my picture, I’m decomposing
Make it a solemn silhouette
Cause this time is no different
It might help you not forget

So take my picture as I burn
And print it out for all to see
Because words are wind
But image impacts our collective memory
