Sylvan - Forgotten Virtue lyrics

Each day I leave my realm, step out of my door – I breathe in carefully
Then from the black façades I watch the rain fall – and courage falls in me
I try to see the sky but I just see walls – they trap me silently

Some people shout at me and it's a known call: the city jeers at me

And I can not, I can not stand it all …

It bruises all my life and all I lived for – unfurls so ruthlessly
Exists to vandalize, I hate it much more – it kills the child in me
And naturally surrounds me day in, day out, phagocytizes all
They call it just progress I call it breakdown – am I the only one?

And I can not, I can not stand it all …

Scaffolds rising through the sky … so threatening …
They sprout and spill their concrete lies

If this is what you want to live through – just myopic curiosity
If this is what satisfies you – then I lost the faith I had in me

… Oh, you got to feel …

False vows paired with false intentions – but they drown in all the other lies
But if there's something I believe in, then there has to be another side

It leads me away, it drags me away, it pulls me away, it drives me away

Each day I leave my realm, step out of my door – I breathe in carefully
Then from the black façades I watch the rain fall – and courage falls in me
I try to see the sun but I just see clouds – and people pass my way

So with a known disgust I quickly turn round – it's just a normal day
