Forgotten Gods

By Iris
[VERSE 1]
I was born free, I won't die a slave
I sprouted wings, looked upon graves
Deceived the eyes of human race
And you're the same, you're just like me
They think we are who we show them to be
Little they know about our real worth,
Little they know about what our power brought.
We held whole worlds in the palm of our hands
Sang kids lullabies while no one else cared

[CHORUS 1]
We're forest spirits, we're ten-headed snakes
We are fire dragons and gentle snowflakes
We come with prayers but feed on sins
Materialize out of human fears
Born before time, so much earlier than that
We saw whole galaxies becoming thin dust
Emperor's falls, Achilles wrath,
We have been fire, thunder, demons, cats
We teached humans to do as told
To make sacrifices, to gift us gold
They shouted our names to have mercy of their souls
And then erased them, we're forgotten Gods.

[VERSE 2]
What's in our veins is not mere human blood
We have the power of a million winters' cold
We ruled the seasons, commanded time
Guided lost souls after death, for a dime
Drank from the blood of a thousand lost wars
And gifted peace while dancing on bones.
They are deceived from our weak human bodies
They think we're puny, young and lazy nobodies
But oh, are they wrong, making fun of immortals!

[CHORUS 2]
Cause we're forest spirits, we're ten-headed snakes
We are fire dragons and gentle snowflakes
We come with prayers but feed on sins
Materialize out of human fears
Born before time, so much earlier than that
We saw whole galaxies becoming thin dust
Emperor's falls, Achilles wrath,
We have been fire, thunder, demons, cats
We teached humans to do as told
To make sacrifices, to gift us gold
They shouted our names to have mercy of their souls
And then erased them, we're forgotten Gods.

[CHORUS 3]
We're the light of stars, we're the dark of the night
We're rays of hope and the fear in a fight
We come with prayers but we feed on sins
Materialize inside human's dreams
Born before time, so much earlier than that
We saw China's Great Wall and kings fall to their death
They made temples for us, we protected their ships,
Laughed at their sacrifices, took their gold as a gift
We protected the weak, we condemned the bad
And took care of the monsters under every kid's bed
Humans used to call us to save their souls
And no long know our names, we're now forgotten Gods.

[OUTRO]
Yet we're built up so different from their weak human flesh,
And if they ridicule us, even calling us trash,
We can just pity them, we are forgotten gods
While they're just day by day running towards their fall.
Let the humans stumble in their short lives' mazes
Cause we were born free, and we'll never die slaves.
