Fallacy Of Greatness(Song) - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

He came upon a rock
and hammered it to bits
He watched it crumble
as pieces flew into the air
It came from will and
conquering minds
with determination
Who'd stop at nothing
to see their plans
all fall into place
At the same time
they fell from grace

Why does it all have to happen this way?
We should all see this fallacy of greatness
We should want to break this
And not move forward
Its not forward
Its only backward

We constructed some cities
and marveled at them
They seemed like achievements
but they were all just built in vain
To show some kind of glory
greater than ourselves
We wanted to be greater than the greats
We found our egos and fed them
till they formed obesity
A life of disorder
A life of a hoarder

Why does it all have to happen this way?
We should all see this fallacy of greatness
We should want to break this
And not move forward
Its not forward
Its only backward

It could be so much better
If we didn't forget how to love
It could be so much easier
If we spoke up against ourselves
I'm in a room with windows looking out
I can see what this is all about
Our legacy will end
If we keep on with this trend
Just let it go
Just let it go
This born child needs to walk away
It needs to get away
To find a real solution towards salvation
Salvation is not defined by violence
nor is it happy in a state of silence

Why does it all have to happen this way?
We should all see this fallacy of greatness
We should want to break this
And not move forward
Its not forward
Its only backward
