'The Curse' is taken from the new Borderlands album 'Voice Of The Voiceless'.
Can you imagine?
Can you imagine a picture perfect paradise,
Untouched and unharmed by the hands of a goddess.
This is the story about how blind ambition,
Ripped off the wings of an endless dreamer.
Once upon a time, there was a boy who was meant to fly,
he was born to reach the sky.
But all his dreams just flew by,
When greatness overcame the prize.
Melted away, those wax wings have dripped slowly to eternity.
They’ve fallen in the ocean of insanity.
Not listening the wiser have compromised him, so he killed the dream. And now he’s only meant to be in an ancient myth,
He’s not very different of you and me.
Time and time again, this curse has been spread,
Across mountains and seas.
This place has been crushed by fear.
Will there be a day when all just disappears?
This was the price of Icarus.
And blind perception overwhelmed his spirit.
Can you reach to that picture perfect paradise,
where you, where you can be truly alive.
Can you reach to that picture perfect paradise
Where you can be truly alive.
