Dark Ages Reprise 3

Lyrics > Dark Ages Reprise 3

DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?
DOES IT MATTER AT ALL?
THERE IS FIRE IN THE WESTERN SKY
THE NIGHT’S ABOUT TO FALL

THERE IS SO MUCH CONFUSION
THE LIGHTS ARE TURNING DIM
DO I PAINT A VIVID PICTURE?
OR, MUST I EXPLAIN MYSELF, AGAIN?

WIDOWS OF MADMEN HIDING FROM THE TRUTH
ORPHANS OF ASSASSINS JUST STRUGGLING WITH SCHOOL
SENDING SHIVERS ‘CROSS THE OCEANS, SCARING US DEAD
CAUSING RIPPLES IN OUR STILLNESS AS WE HIDE IN OUR BED

TWISTED ALLEYS, TANGLED LIVES
OUR WORLD IT INTERSECTS
DID YOU SEE THE EVENING NEWS?
IF NOT NOW, THE QUESTION ‘S WHEN?

IS THERE HOPE FOR GAZA?
DOES DEMOCRACY CARRY THE STICK?
THE WARPED RESULT CONFOUNDS ME
WE NEED A BAG OF TRICKS

911 MILLIONAIRE, A MAKEOVER SCHEME
NEW WIFE AND A NEW HAIRSTYLE…THE AMERICAN DREAM
A MASTER OF DISTRACTION, A SUNDAY MORNING FRAUD
A PRESIDENT-IN-WAITING, DO WE LAUGH OR, JUST, APPLAUD

CAN WICKED RULERS BE TIED
TO THE ONE WE CALL THE LORD?
THEY HARASS THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE INNOCENT
APPLYING YOUR NAME TO THEIR LAW.

YET IF DEVOTION IS YOUR REFUGE
YOUR STRONGHOLD, YOUR ROCK
WILL WE WIPE OUT WICKED MESSENGERS?
WHEN WILL THEY LOSE THEIR FLOCK?


ANCEDOTE AND RUMOUR, INNEUNDO AND THE LIES
BECOME FOUNDATION PRINCIPLES, MAGIC IN OUR EYES
THE BLAZE KEEPS ON BURNING, WHILE WIND TRANSPORTS THE RAIN
OUR SOLDIERS ARE DYING, WILL TRY THIS GAME AGAIN?

DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?
DOES IT MATTER AT ALL?
SHE’S SOARING IN THE SUNLIT SKY
OBSERVES THE DISTANT WORLD BELOW

EXCUSE ME WHILE I TURN THE PAGE
THE NEWS IS SO DEPRESSING
WILL THEY KEEP THE GUNS A’BLAZIN’
OR, WILL THEY LEARN THEIR LESSON?

LIVES IN THE BALANCE FOR EVERYDAY FOLK
JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE, THE CURRENT CRUEL JOKE
DECISIONS FROM ON HIGH PROVIDE NO ANSWER
IN THE END WE MUST WAKE AND FACE DISASTER
