VNV Nation Lyrics


A million points of light
Ascending to the sky
Monuments in darkness
Standing watch
Until the sun will rise
Screaming to an emptiness
Of how we once defined ourselves
With our hands over our eyes
Claiming all of creation
What inspires in us this madness
That out existence should be defined
By a light that can't be seen by anyone
What inspires in us this madness
That out existence should be defined
By a light that we can't see
By a light that can't be seen

A million points of light
Ascending to the sky
Monuments in darkness
Standing watch
Until the sun will rise
I can't, I can't see this all as progress
How did we come this far?
When we see ourselves as deities
Claiming nature for ourselves
By our actions we betray
The instincts in our race
By our blindness and stupidity
We kill everything
We kill everything

Can someone see our self destruction?
Are we reminding ourselves
That our existence is so delicate
That without this light we are no more
That without this light we've made we are no more

A million points of light
Ascending to the sky
Monuments in darkness
Standing watch
Until the sun will rise
We torch this earth until it bleeds
Rain ashes from the sky
Just to make a light that no one can see
We cut this earth until it bleeds
Rain ashes from the sky
Just to make a light that no one can see
Just to make a light
Just to make a light
We kill everything
By our blindness and stupidity
We kill everything

In a thousand years, what will be our legacy?
A million lights that no one can see
A million points of light

Those who cry aren't weak. They've just been strong for too long.

Alter Recke Hamburg

one of the best vnv songs ever.

I've never met Ronan Harris in person, but listening to the lyrics of the songs in this album -- particularly this one, I believe -- fulfills me with feeling that he knows more about the human race than the majority of preachers or philosophers. VNV Nation's music is like a liturgy for me. Every single word makes me contemplate almost subconsciously, about everything I do; it inspires me to be a better, more loving and less cynical person... I've never had this kind of connection with any other musical band.

Go to a concert, most of the time you can meet him afterwards, take a picture and have a chat. He's great !

Not virtue. It's "Victory Not Vengeance".

Marcus Kane

I hope you get to meet Ronan one day. He's really personable. I met him in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. He made me feel like we were the only two people in the room.

Another good band! Sometimes I wonder if one was inspired by the other.

That's why I'm a fan! They live up to their name: Virtue Not Vengance Nation. When I first heard Dark Angel on Metropolis 2000 I knew I found an amazing band!

I love the beat in this track. A smooth, heavy, dark beat that really empowers the mood.
