Sever the hand that carries the torch A prophet returned a Sinner Throw the knife at the heart Of the righteous foundations Built gathering lie upon lie This is prosperity Glaring obscurity This is the crumbling greed In the name of authority Pleading and begging for shelter Before the Hounds Of War Sever the wings of the circuling vultures Who feed on the bound and the gagged When the pillars of conscience Bear trophies of havoc Set gathering night after night This is prosperity Glaring obscurity This is the thunderous claim In the name of uncertainty The promising vow that revenge Will Have No Bounds

Dig dig deep Into the gold of my bones The lead from your fangs The weight on my spine Set to discord abuse Bring forth and wear me down The lead from your fangs The weight on my spine The lead from your fangs It weakens my jaded crown And lacquers my soul With the brightest crimson The lead from your fangs A treasure within the gold of my bones I want to settle Void of cancer Free from corrosion Forever lifeless And as the ghost abandons me Let these fragments of passion dwell Like buried commitment stem from the wretched Be brave beloved And take root between the cracks on my skull

In a room where guilt resides Blind to Dehumanize I am the bitter taste of responsibility I am fear of failure I made a vicious choice To look away hard boiled I am the common sense Judgemental I am a grim blue face Like cable wires Spreading from the margin of our limbs Banded together We are decaying daffodils We hang our heads low Led by the sermon We lay our loyalty in sorrow Like cable wires Spreading from the margin of our limbs We are connected We are decaying marionettes We hang our heads low Led by the sermon We lay our loyalty to miracles This ship is sinking These walls are caving in To the beat of rats clawing steel To the roar of rats gnawing coffins To the mothers and their daughters Into early graves And the bitter repellency Molding my intelligence Drown the mothers and drown their graves To hell the battles with all their names And the taste of salt Drown all hope For the life of me

I’ve got five on it And I've got five four three two one But I sing All the wrong songs Is it relevant Or is it useful to your cause If I sing all the wrong words Are we committed To formal templates And caring chivalry So preach by distance Or teach the immature Safespace sabotage Chasing ideas Missing contempt Out of our minds We're out of here If you don't dress the part You will play the part But rats will always be rats Plague will bring pain to the land

Keep dancing love keep dancing love In a world of ash and dust Shun fears bright stars Alchemists turning wine into lust Straight into the morning sun Come forth wild hearts Shun fears bright stars Don't let the ghost of youth Before the river dries For dirty kisses and crooked teeth Dirty skeletons and wet lips With fear of heights and stage fright You feed them cathode colors Before the embers freeze Before you put your put your eyes to sleep for you can never end a dream that wasn't meant to start latelovers deadlovers shun fears bright future keep dancing love keep dancing love before the river dries before the embers freeze keep dancing love keep dancing love

I’ve been the face of deprivation Bulimic broken done I took the offering of hurt Now there's no pride over our heads I just want to close my eyes Take me for damaged scum Song and dance of fortitude From a panicking heart This mise en scene Iis living up To it's own prediction That every picture Every song Every chance you had And every time you felt Out of hand or out of breath A wishful thinking suggestion to Die young and save yourselves But we all drive our cars Through traffic lights Trophy scars Trapped inside Tragic lives Consuming time Burning carbs Burning food for thought Red means stop red means go Red means everything But we all curse our lives And we all punch the steering wheel As if we could pretend We did not bring ourselves here Cause we are not Where we thought we would be

From knightsticks to knives Bright letters on armors The symbols of power A union of stones We picture new riots Addresing blessed fortune A blatant excuse For cavemen with shields So when the drums will call A standoff a dead stop All of that is to weaken The enemy in strenght We will erase the lesson learned A wound will soothe another wound And chants of hope will soar From both sides of the trenches And daring songs will rise Along the barricade Over the ignorance of tribes Over the indifference of time Against all odds With collapsing lungs And broken bones These are the words the world will carve Upon our barren monuments Death is greater than life But love is greater Than death

In times of grief In times of madness In times of lunacy In times of panic And cruel nights Worthy of coward goodbyes When every man destroys Everything he loves What have you done Contending the injury What have you done Persistent torture What have you done Depressing burden What have you done Cut to the quick Scapegoat and martyrs But I am bitter blood I am scorn and venom For men in higher grounds But I am calm as the water held Inside the palms of my hands And I am trust before the rain Of the impending judgement day But I am calm as the water held Inside the palms of my hands And I am trust before the violence Of the oncoming downpour

Fierce and proud over confined reason Civilized by the forest mark Led by anger Blind to saviour Bow to no one But to myself Trade your skin with rags of grime To the opening ceremony Misplacing our endeavor Surrendering our temper It's the sight that shifts our hand Bends close to home And shapes the spirit hollow But was the pledge worth the scenery When it took so long For our flesh to understand And it took so long For our kind to realize We are demons Of lower nature Led by anger Blind to savior Only aide Bow to none From the cradle to the grave

I want my pieces back I want to look at neon lights And apathetic posters Marketing the damage Without self condemnation And in the motionless recovery Recollect sweet nothings You trace a line over my spine It fells estranged It’s brittle backbone Spilling on the floor It has the shape of mourning And tastes like copper It doesn't correspond Like long hair on my sweater I want my pieces back I want to look at neon lights I don't want to hate this city anymore And everyday she drags me To the soil from the sand And when we walk our feet Sink into the grass I want to heal

Out in the cold Storm that grazes skin My feet are numb They took us out of hell A costant wish to say something I barely part my lips The road unfolds with trees It's a curse From here to the lowest point This is no man's land I can't bring to mind The last time I stopped to catch my breath I find shelter in scars Through ill weathers I lighten fears Nevermind the turmoils Knowing this will be over Nevermind the wearing hail Knowing you won't wait for me I can't bring to mind T he last time I stopped to catch my breath I find shelter in weightless days Through ill weathers I lighten fears Grow old Grow cold Be no more
