about

Age of Reason is about humankind’s ability to achieve greatness if the effort is made. We are living in a time now where entire societies are under willful bondage. But this is not how it needs to be. A new age of enlightenment is within reach if individuals would step into the unknown.
Many are so complacent in the familiar, that no questions are risen about the validity or the worth of that which they hold on to. It’s time to remove those things that bind us as individuals, and embrace the intellectual freedom that is equally available to each and every one of us. This is what Age of Reason calls for – for the end of patriarchal, oppressive regimes, and for the embrace of reason. For that is the only thing which can set us free.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Listen, hear thy son's afflictions
Born in adoration
Now a black sheep in pastoral binds.
Spoken, Lord's decree unbroken
Hollow words a token
Meaning has been dead for long inside
Jesu, joy of man's delusion
Papal retribution
Self-aggrandizing for two millenia
Come now, defend thy holy station
'Gainst my accusations
You stand on trial for the death of all I love

Chorus 1:
Can't you see that we are falling?
Deeper, darker, backwards spiraling
Don't you care the world's on fire?
Matryrs, murders, in your name.
Shepherds lead their flock to slaughter
Fattened from their birth to death.
I am hoping against reason
That one day we'll all break free.

Verse 2:
Preacher, call yourself a teacher
You are just a lecher
Prey upon the weakest fertile blooming minds
Pastor, teachings of the master
The unbridled cancer
Generations dying 'fore they're even born
Sister, restricted to the cloister
Habit gripping tighter
Hide your cursed shame of femininity.
Father, filthiest misnomer
Come unto your altar
Bear the bones of patriarchy.

Chorus 2:
Can't you see that we are falling?
Bleaker, blacker, backwards spiraling
Don't you care the world's on fire?
Holy wars fought in your name.
Shepherds lead their flock to slaughter
Fattened from their birth to death.
I am hoping unto reason
That one day we'll all be free.

Chorus 3:
Can't you see that we are falling?
Rise up now, new day is calling
Don't you care the world's on fire?
Embrace unfulfilled desire
Shepherds lead their flock to slaughter
Fattened from their birth to death.
I am hoping unto reason
That today we'll all break free.

Outro:
It is only in the embrace of reason
That we may ever shake these shackles
The old ways of antiquity must give way
To a new age of enlightenment and ingenuity
For too long have their ways beleaguered us
For too long have we been held silent
But in this new dawn of self-reliance
We shall be unyielding in our resolve
