lyrics

Living with the lights out
The heresy
Of a world you vowed will never break me
Barricaded
Starved and diseased stripped away from all identity
Ahh! It’s harrowing
Break the chains of my submission to
This destiny
Left to wither with no name
Decaying

BORN TO PERISH
Echo of the brittle bones that you cursed me with
Carved without a beating heart
Sewn from the fabric of scorn and hatred
ENSLAVED IN HUBRIS
Deluded by the masquerade that you’ve orchestrated
Release me
Release me
RELEASE ME

Losing grip on my reality
And my perception
Stuck beneath the veil of temporary visions (and voices)
Governed by the perpetrators of delusion
The more you know, the less you gain
In this circus of lies
I’m losing my mind

And I never wanted you to walk away
And I never wanted the portrait of us to fade
And I always cut your hand to see you bleed
You taste so real, so pure; it makes me weak
Digging deep under my skin
So bury me, I can’t exist—

We melded luxury through bitter deceit
We massacred the righteous
Intoxicating a society
Bound by the clutch of ignorance
If we are blinded to our harrowing fate
We’ll nourish the decay of Man
We’ll be branded by our wrecked remains
As the architects of
Destruction
