hardware requiem lyrics – covenant

we believe in human progress
we create the servants we need
we develop new ways of living
we develop new ways of living

we search for power sources
we need energy to survive
we build on fragile ground
we build on fragile ground

we feel safe in unstable houses
we fear the world outside
we’ve become strangers at home
we’ve become strangers at home

we went too far, we can’t turn back
we built too high, we can’t get down
we are the slaves of our servants
in the shadow of our ambitions
