Aviators - Dystopian Fiction Lyrics




Take out all the bad in the world
What's left in it?
Where's the next gleaming hope?
Indefinite
I would like to take a stand
But not alone (but not alone, but not alone)
Gave you what I had to give
And it's not enough
I need a shred of purpose
When living gets rough
I need a place unbroken
To call my home (to call my home, to call my home)

Dark times
Of our war crimes
When the bombs we build come back down through the roof
We are live wires
In the crossfire
And the pages of our lives aren't bulletproof
I'm a dead man
In the wasteland
I'm a soldier fighting for superstition
Under search lights
In the long nights
We've been written like dystopian fiction

Love exists in pain
Even in our tragedy
When the world spins
And we lose our gravity
Nobody can shoot me down
Not just yet (not just yet, not just yet)
Voices of the crowd
We're screaming
Into the rain
When those above us
Have long gone insane
Give me the strength I need
To forget (to forget, to forget)

Dark times
Of our war crimes
When the bombs we build come back down through the roof
We are live wires
In the crossfire
And the pages of our lives aren't bulletproof
I'm a dead man
In the wasteland
I'm a soldier fighting for superstition
Under search lights
In the long nights
We've been written like dystopian fiction

I don't wanna look back now
But I can't find the way out
So I won't do it
On my own
We are stronger now as one
We will never have to run
Or face the world alone

Dark times (dark times)
Of our war crimes
When the bombs we build come back down through the roof
We are live wires (live wires in the crossfire)
In the crossfire
And the pages of our lives aren't bulletproof

Dark times
Of our war crimes
When the bombs we build come back down through the roof
We are live wires
In the crossfire
And the pages of our lives aren't bulletproof
I'm a dead man
In the wasteland
I'm a soldier fighting for superstition
Under search lights
In the long nights
We've been written like dystopian fiction

    Did you have nuclear weapons in mind when you wrote this?

  15. Jack Foisy

    Has it really been a month? I'm pretty sure i've been listening to this ever since it came out. How much has changed, what have i missed!?

  16. Album Interpretations

    I Keep coming back to this one for some reason...

  20. defandj

    Aviators (or Tyler)... I have a question here relating to your place, Florida. Are you safe there since hurricane is rising? Or have you escaped Florida? I hope everything's well with you...

    Liam Cahill

    defandj I think he's further inland and higher upland so he won't be affected (hopefully)😅

    defandj

    Liam Cahill 😅oki

    Henning

    He told us on Discord (server linked in the description) his home is built to withstand Hurricanes as strong as Category 5, but his power did go out multiple times, so we haven't heard from him in a while. But last time we did, he said he was well, so we shouldn't be too worried.

  21. Random Watcher

    such an amazing song

  22. Blake chandler

    Hah "Written like dystopian fiction"

  23. Hanif Shakiba

    You ever listen to a song and then think "this would be sung during this event by that kind of person"

    Well I got that for this song, you know the whole N.Korea threatening nuclear war on the US, well I was thinking that if they did and the US retaliated with nukes, this would be the song the N.Korean soldiers would sing. (In Korean obviously)

    That just me?

    Blake chandler

    Hanif Shakiba I don't think so.

  24. Leonardo352

    Realization has occurred that I haven't checked out their channel in over a year.

  25. JayJayFan

    holy crap

  26. Tom C

    So happy I got to give my voice for this track. Thanks for letting us be apart of it.

  27. The Fanalysis Channel

    Ah man, this album is absolutely brilliant! I really wish I hadn't missed out on getting a CD copy of it!

    Henning

    There will be more CDs coming later this week!

    The Fanalysis Channel

    Ah cool! Where did you hear about that? Do you know if they will be available on his Bandcamp?

    Henning

    He confirmed it multiple times during his weekly livestreams. And yes, CDs will always be sold on Bandcamp!

    Henning

  39. DarkTiger83

    I think it's so amazing how Avi let his fans be a part of his music! Artists that acknowledge their community like that hold a soft spot in my heart and I'm sort of sorry I didn't know about this until the song was released. My bro was part of it though! Amazing work as usual, Aviators!

  40. Proc-Prime

    New fav song, end of.

    Thank you Avi for letting me be a part of something great, it was such an honor. Love it.

  46. CptOfCapitalism

    The four people who disliked this must have misclicked

  47. Blue Spring

    Too many chills! It's like taking a break from anything normal and mainstream in the world to step back and look at it. Like this we could get a better view on certain things and see their true value. Or if they have any at all. That's what I see in this song.

  48. влад поращенко

    i bet every subscriber of you'rs would like to sing along with you in chorus.

  49. Lamar Carter

    3:57 Avi channeling Michael Jackson's soul into his voice

  50. Epstein didn't kill himself

    Why isn't this showing up in my subscriptions?

    I was afraid Avi took it down for some reason...

  51. Miguel Sanchez

    That picture..... *why does it make me think of AKIRA*
    man Akira could had used a few happy songs...

  52. Thibault

    I love how we can see Anor Londo in the back, among the other dystopian systems...

  61. Sapphire

  62. Mr. Bones

  63. Kazziwazzi24

  70. Nightwolf

    It was a honor to participate in the song made by my favourite musician. It turned out way better than I expected. I hope it is possible to do something like that again in the future. ^^.

  71. Ryan R. L.

    This speaks to me, for some reason..

  72. Myotic Tesseract

  79. TheSwordofFlames

    This album turned out better than I could have imagined. I'm especially thankful that I was able to help out with this track!

  80. EpicFroggz

    So glad to be one of the voices of the crowd! I can't help but sing along to this wonderful song! <3

  81. Jake Russell

    I'm going to suggest this song if I get another prom!

    MiningwithPudding

    They'll allow non-popsongs there? Cause I swear back in High School whoever came up with the song list never heard of this part of YouTube.

    Jake Russell

    MiningwithPudding we won't know till we try!

  82. Newmaker

    This is true magic!

  83. Gnarlybox Games

    I get a feeling here come the ravens is about a certain skank in a certain astral clock tower....

  85. Rat Jam

    I didn't know you could be sexually attracted to a song

    Lucius Meyers

    This was uploaded ON MY BIRTHDAY

    ChaoticEvilCanary

    I went a step forward. I impregnated it fucking it while pushing it against the shower door.

    Wolven Boi

    @ChaoticEvilCanary That's pretty hot... Like... Hot as the sun.... A






    Bleeding sun

    Bell W

    Write me like one of your dystopian fictions

  86. TheHeatRush

    In my opinion this is the best Title song Avi's ever made, which is why I am so happy I was able to participate in the crowd for the chorus!

  87. Janelle Huneke

    I found out something. I had no idea that Stargazers and Building Better Worlds are connected. This album is also connected. They all tell a story. Now that I know this it seems to draw me into these songs more. Now I can't wait for more albums and what their stories will tell. . . Great song BTW

    James CyberLink

    Janelle Huneke What story?

  88. Jake Russell

    I think Aviators needs to make a CD playlist and sell copies!

    Henning

    He's been selling CDs for years, and you can still get CD copies of Stargazers, and more copies of this album will be available in just a few weeks!

  89. Meagan the Marionette

    Love this song. Just so pretty

  90. toby

    So chill this time, good work!

  91. Gray

    Awwwww, yes. Favorite song from the album, hands down.

  92. Ularech

    not even 30 seconds in and already have chills down my spine, love your work Avi ^^

  93. Chris van der Meulen

    when is neo tokyo gonna be released?

    EpicFroggz

    LeonidasNL Leonidas I believe he said something about the remix being copyrighted, so he couldn't upload/un-private it. You can listen to it from Scandroid's channel though. :)

    Water_Link

    Or you can find it right here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54BE6mRFnJQ
    (It was actually released awhile ago, just Avi made it a private video for the time.)

  94. Gabriel Dropshot

    I really did not expect this song to be soooo good. Easily one of my top favorites of all time!

  95. Blu On Mushrooms

    One of my all-time favorites you've ever made Avi! Joining in with other fans was just so much fun. Like I said earlier when this song was still in production, it definitely gives much more emotion. This song can be over 30 or more years old & it'll forever be in my heart, staying golden <3

  96. Fallax-3

    i feel like crying now. in a good way

  97. Dark Wolf

    You're making all the artists look bad by doing every genre better then them

  98. TheMattster5000

    So... the pages of their lives thing, there must be drawings on them because they're not bulletproof, and as we all know, "words are bulletproof"

  99. juliette henri

    I love tous perfect song👌
