Listen to the Song:
Cleanse your ears and hear the future
And tell the world the bitter truth
The second most beautiful woman in the universe
Was drenched in madness
Through the odyssey of her youth
Cry in vain while no one will choose to hear you,
Character stained and no one will congregate near you
Cassandra will they ever see the light?
An endless, agonized frustration
Of knowing “x” but observing “y”
Wouldn’t life have been much easier if you had only just
If you had just learned how to lie
The sky is falling but none will believe you
Night is calling and one dissolves without you
Cassandra, will this be that fateful night?
I believe that springtime will start earlier this year
And if I assume as much, will I resume my touch to…
Navigate my ship through rock infested waters?
Guided by ancient stars,
The world in which we are looks quite the same
So much the same…
I declare that wintertime is over now
Ten days earlier than it was ever supposed to be
Or was it meant to be?
Revealed as riddles and vague, disjointed statements
Cast in the middle of rain for the gods’ entertainment
The world is crumbling to dust but no one believes you
Your peers have withdrawn their trust and will no longer receive you
Cassandra, will we ever get this right?
