Theocracy - "A Tower of Ashes" (Live In Madison)

Behold the tower
Brick by brick we raise it upward to the sky
To reach the heights of heaven and beyond
With eyes of fire and burning pride,
our power cannot be denied
So God Himself can look at what we've done

Questioning my own intent and motive
Babel, are you really all that far away?
Sometimes I wonder what we'd do if the applause had died
and we found ourselves performing to an empty hall upon an empty stage

The eyes of God, or the eyes of man?
No one can serve two masters in opposing masterplans
But we go our way and keep climbing
Higher and higher, but farther to fall
And we build all our strongholds behind all our walls
But we stand on the threshold of losing it all

All the glory we crave
All the towers we raise
All the pride we build up to the sky
When the vanity fades,
the illusion gives way
to a tower of ashes and lies

Still we seek to build our towers higher and higher
Sometimes when we think we're so high, the only way to go is down
When it is our pride that takes us higher and higher
We watch our towers crumble and in helplessness we hit the ground
Higher and higher, but farther to fall
And we build all our strongholds behind all our walls
But we stand on the threshold of losing it all

All the glory we crave
All the towers we raise
All the pride we build up to the sky
When the vanity fades,
the illusion gives way
to a tower of ashes
A tower of ashes
A tower of ashes and lies
