We have found the way

But it isn’t where we can go

We want to turn toward the new

But the old surrounds us

The way is up but there are no stairs

Yet we can see the stars

So far out of reach

The trolls are frightened and angry

Among the old around us

They hit and shove

Shouting nonsense

How did they get in here?

Why do we have to fight forgotten wars

While ignorance kills our future

Ancient greed and hate

Are the lock upon the gate

That holds us here
