lyrics

I am the inventor
but I grow weary of space and time
I must invent a place
where I can surely shine

I must invent the time
I must invent the place
I must devise the human race

I want to create something perfect by design
I want to create something who knows they are mine

I must invent the time
I must invent the place
I must devise the human race

How shall it sprout?
this experiment of mine
how shall I play
the progression of mankind?
will I find redemption?
or will I fall from grace?
can I even find myself within the human race?

I must invent the time
I must invent the place
I must devise the human race

I started it with a bang
and the great plan had begun
the monuments where raised
straight from the ground which I had made
the intelligence that I am
left no questions to be raised
despite the victories of my days
at night you can hear me say

Save me, save my from myself
save me, my heart has turned to rotting gold
save me, save my from myself
save me, my heart has turned to rotting gold

In the chapels they start to wonder
whose life their living, theirs or mine?
The thread between their hearts and mine
grows thinner everyday
I've since become a mirage
in a world I used to own
with the disappearing of my days
at night you can hear me say

Save me, save my from myself
save me, my heart has turned to rotting gold
save me, save my from myself
save me, my heart has turned to rotting gold

I can feel myself transform

I no longer know myself
what have I become?
the pain in seeking glory
has surely left me blind

My people have abandoned me
and left me in the cold
proving that society is only
bought and sold

The time has counted down
and my war has just been waged
was it good or was it bad?
or was it all just staged?

I must invent the time
I must invent the place
I must devise the human race

I invented a time
I invented a place
I created them all
only to have it blow up in my face

This is an epitaph for all those who design
for all those dreams that were crushed, just like mine
this is an epitaph for all those who design.
for all those dreams that were crushed, just like mine
