Remnant
written by: Jak Locke

version 4:
from Post-Apocalyptic Hymnal (December 3rd 2008) (4:37)
I seen light, thank the gods and tell them they were right
Thrown afar, knowledge leaves a permanent scar

You never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A feeling wasted, a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just play your role

Held astray, the journey back a year maybe a day
Far too late a paradox to try anticipate

She never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A future wasted, a lifetime mutated
Some crazy fate writes what you will have stated

You never know what's in store for you
A final farewell and a wave that seemed so new
I'm feeling wasted, I'm a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just pay your toll

version 3:
from Afterimage Chaser (May 6th 2000) (4:27)
I seen light, thank the gods and tell them they were right
Thrown afar, knowledge leaves a permanent scar

You never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A feeling wasted, a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just play your role

Held astray, the journey back a year maybe a day
Far too late a paradox to try anticipate

She never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A future wasted, a lifetime mutated
Some crazy fate writes what you will have stated

You never know what's in store for you
A final farewell and a wave that seemed so new
I'm feeling wasted, I'm a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just pay your toll

version 2:
from Paradox Prophecy (November 21st 1999) (3:57)
I seen light, thank the gods and tell them they were right
Thrown afar, knowledge leaves a permanent scar

You never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A feeling wasted, a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just play your role

Held astray, the journey back a year maybe a day
Far too late a paradox to try anticipate

She never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A future wasted, a lifetime mutated
Some crazy fate writes what you will have stated

You never know what's in store for you
A final farewell and a wave that seemed so new
I'm feeling wasted, I'm a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just pay your toll

version 1:
from Rot (October 18th 1999) (4:27)
I seen light, thank the gods and tell them they were right
Thrown afar, knowledge leaves a permanent scar

You never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A feeling wasted, a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just play your role

Held astray, the journey back a year maybe a day
Far too late a paradox to try anticipate

She never saw what was come to you
A final farewell and a wave that seems so new
A future wasted, a lifetime mutated
Some crazy fate writes what you will have stated

You never know what's in store for you
A final farewell and a wave that seemed so new
I'm feeling wasted, I'm a manufactured soul
Said and done and you just pay your toll
