lyrics

VAIN REPETITIONS. RUNNING. FIGHTING. RUNNING FOR OUR LIVES. WE'RE DONE LIVING IN YOUR LIGHT. DECLARED THAT I'M COLD HEARTED. OR SO YOU SPEAK ACROSS THE SEA. BUT THESE VEINS WILL OPEN SO THE TRUTH CAN FLOW AND CURE AN ARROGANT DISEASE. BEST BEAR THIS WEIGHT. JUST MAKE IT HOME. BREAK THE LINE WITH THE FLASH OF LIGHT. NOW DROWN IN THE MIGHT OF THE FATHER OF NIGHT. MARCH ON, NEO SEOUL. REBEL, ARCH ANGEL. RIPPED LIMB FROM LIMB. LET HIM ROT THIS WAY. OPEN UP THESE NEON GATES. SILAS, MIND THIS RADIANT LIGHT. JUST FIGHT THIS RIGHTEOUS FIGHT. I DIGRESS: FAITH. PATIENCE. WITNESS I, MOST HIGH. MASS GENOCIDE. LET THE BODIES FLY. THE DIRTY MUST BE PURGED FOR ALL THE PEOPLE DIGGING IN THE DARK. A CITY CAST IN ASH. DIG THOSE HEELS IN. STERILIZE. IDOLIZE A DESOLATION RIDDLED IN A GOLDEN MIGHT. COLD DAYS. HOT NIGHTS. SWOLLEN EGO. THREE DECADES IN THE GRAVE. GLASS CITY BUILT IN CINDER. WITNESS THE EXODUS OF LUST. WE MUST REDUCE THE PAST TO DUST. CHILDREN, CHILDREN, LISTEN WELL: REAL HELL IS BASED IN INDECISION. NOW LISTEN, SUBSCRIPTION TO THIS LIFE IS NOT A CHOICE. NO. CLIMB THE TOWER. ROUSE THE VERMIN, CENTER STAGE. PAY YOUR GRACE. FORFEIT PROSPECT. RESPECT MY AUTHORITY IN PLACE OF YOUR FREEDOMS. DON'T NEED THEM CUZ YOU'RE NOT WORTH YOUR OWN BONES. HOPE. IT'S SUCH A SIMPLE KIND OF DREAM. HOME. IT HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM OUR HANDS. JUST A MEMORY THAT'S LIVING IN OUR HEARTS. WE BOW OUR HEADS IN SHAME. WE'VE GOT TO ABIDE TO CARRY ON. I HOPE MY CHILDREN FORGIVE ME IN THE MORN. IN THE MOURNING IF WE LIVE TO SEE ANOTHER DAY. GIVE ME SOME PEACE AND VALIDATE MY POWER. THIS COWARDS PACING, FILLING THE HOUR. AM I WHAT WAS INTENDED? AM I THE LIGHT? SILENCE. ARE YOU NOT PLEASE? HYSTERIA. SPEAK TO ME. ARE YOU LISTENING? LET LOW, SETTLED EFFORTS TO LOSS PROSTRATED BY EFFLUENCE. AMONG THE MEAGER MAGGOT, I'M FOUND HERE, COLD, ABANDONED SLAVE. SOUGHT LOVE. DENIED BY THE FATHER. ROUGH LUCK. SUPPRESSED ABODE. PHONE HOME TO NO KNOWN NUMBER. EMPTY, CALLOW SERVANT OF GREATER GOOD. KEPT FRESH IN THE BELLY OF THE DEVIL. A POX OF PARADOX. KEEP VAUX ON TOES FROM THE HEELS TO THE NOSE. LET THIS SONG BE THE FROST OF THE HEARTS I ERODE. PLEASE SPEAK TO THE DEADLY DEFECTIVE. I'M HERE TO BE YOUR GHOST. SUFFER THE CROWN. ROTTEN RESOLUTION. KEEP ME NEXT TO POSSIBLE TROPHIES. I'LL BE THE CENTER PIECE. NEVER KNOWN FLAW, I AM EVERYTHING. WASTED ENERGY OF A PROPHET LEFT TO DESTROY IT ALL. SILAS THE WEAK SERVANT, TIME TO DIE. KEEPSAKE OF A CALLOW CAMPAIGN. BLOODY AGE OF PAIN. IF I'M TO GO THEN THE WORLD GOES TOO.
