lyrics

The vicious cycle, this daily routine.
I’m trapped within a chasm.
A void of every person’s discontent.
A labyrinth of social stigma.

A revolving door, a carousel of emptiness forever turning.
A life of failure I can bear no more.
This beaten path has driven me to the ground.

Following their illusionary necessities.
Eyes open to a life of stagnancy.

Another day watching my soul slip away.
I watch the hours pass as I fall into dismay.
Every second feels like an internal ulcer, too deep and infected to heal.
Left for dead but there’s always a means to an end.
The wounds I bear are wounds that time will never completely mend.
I’ve seen it before in my wildest dreams, the end of peoples suffering just like me.

I’ve been pushed to the brink of complete enmity.
I’ve been buried deep by this pessimistic sovereignty.
This is one final lesson that this race will have to learn.
This is a trial by fire, and you were all born to burn.

For every good man there’s fifty more bad you can’t escape just follow the line.
The purest rain trickles down from the sky, it turns to mud before I can call it mine.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.

Suffering, unrelenting, cast out those in control.
You’re all the same, you’re all to blame.
Death is the only toll.

I close my eyes and I envision the world ablaze.
I see through your disguises and the smiles across your face.
A world in misery coated my false liberties.
In death I choose nothing left to loose.
All will be sentenced to die and I the noose.

I’ve been pushed to the brink of complete enmity.
I’ve been buried deep by this pessimistic sovereignty.
This is one final lesson that this race will have to learn.
This is a trial by fire!

Distinguished by a line in the sand.
All are found guilty the blood’s on your hands.

A disgusting race not worthy of the rock we inhabit.
We find, we claim, we keep.
Then we sell it back for as much as we can.

How can you not be consumed by you guilt?
Or is it lack thereof that causes you to spit on everything I’ve built?
Are you untouchable, the fortunate sons?
Nothing will be of value after all is fucking said and done.

Can I sacrifice everything that I cherished and loved to watch them turn to dust?
I must sacrifice everything that I cherished and loved to watch them turn to dust.

I will join them in the pyre.
My last and only stand no other alternate exists.
Cleanse ourselves inside the fire.
Forsaken by the American dream.

No more days of watching my soul slip away.
The hours have passed the time is now to place the world in disarray.
Disavowed, the blame will be placed solely on my condition.
Still you will die in repetition.
Still you die in repetition.
Still you die!

For every good man there’s fifty more bad you can’t escape just follow the line.
The purest rain trickles down from the sky, it turns to mud before I can call it mine.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.
