lyrics

The hand of fate is a phantom limb
That wields a will of obsidian
Crack the ribs remove the shard
Isaac bound to vivisect

Hands o’er hearts fealty sworn
A vein attempt to mask the wound
Scar reminds identity
Spilled on an altar of sand

Organs sealed in canopic jars
Thou livest on the bread of Ra
Remove the self and take thy place
Ascend to join the nameless ones

Stare into the savior’s face
Suffer ye the same fate
Stare into the traitor’s face
Suffer ye the same fate

Plastic smiles locked in opposition
Kicking hooves and rending tusks
United only in their lust
Trample all beneath blackened feet

Drunken orgies held in secret rooms
Disgusting writhing of ashen skin
Jesus swills the blood of swine
Vomits yet another platitude

Plans devised to procreate
To raze a child in Babylon
A bastard son that none will claim
Judas bred to crucify

Stare into the savior’s face
Suffer ye the same fate
Stare into the traitor’s face
Suffer ye the same fate

We’ve been so wrong
For so long
We cannot fall
Nor carry on

As a dream - as a devil
This face of love is merely a mask
It never sleeps - it speaks forever
The sins of the past are unforgiven

Shape me
Smudge me
Dream me
Erase me
Heal me
Scar me
Praise me
Delete me
Touch me
Doubt me
Face me
Deny me
Cleanse me
Stain me
Hold me
Undo me

I’m ancient
I’m fading
I’m wisdom
I’m decay
I’m boundless
I’m finite
I’m legion
I’m no name

I tried
I lied
I tried
I lied
