Lyrics

We’re blind and eager
Avarice will set us back to blank
Those who wager all will have to name a reason
(If you can’t let go)
You will end up empty handed
(If you can’t control)
You’ll live your life in vain

Who decides about my time to come ?
Who is able to break through the circle of life and doom ?
Don’t look back, keep on track to break the curse
Take the chance, design your universe

We can’t undo what we have done so show us now what we’ve become
Confront us with our viciousness and our weakness
We can’t evade our destiny, so show responsibility
For we all surely have a sense of our consciousness

To take for taking’s sake
Will leave a path of loss and strain
And endless breaking of faith can warrant acts of treason
(If you can’t let go)
You will end up empty handed
(If you can’t control)
You’ll live your life in vain

Who decides about what’s true or false ?
Who is able to sift through the treasures from the flukes ?
Don’t look back, keep on track to break the curse
Take the chance, design your universe

We can’t undo what we have done so show us now what we’ve become
Confront us with our viciousness and our weakness
We can’t evade our destiny, so show responsibility
For we all surely have a sense of our consciousness

The time has come, we have to see
That total wisdom is in reach
The time has come to colour in the lines
We must identify the signs

So many people are full of hate while love and light are in their reach
So many people will harm themselves, but life can be so beautiful

So many people will idolize while their own success is in their reach
Don’t forget you’re able to design your own universe

Find your balance, sink into rumination

Ipsum te reperies
Potire mundorum
Potire omnis mundi

We can’t undo what we have done so show us now what we’ve become
Confront us with our viciousness and our weakness
We can’t evade our destiny, so show responsibility
For we all surely have a sense of our consciousness

Can’t undo
Show us now
Confront us
We’re the weakness
Can’t evade
Show us how
We have our sense

Translation

Ipsum te reperies
Potire mundorum
Potire omnis mundi
You will discover yourself
Become a master of worlds
Become a master of the whole world
