lyrics

oh my brother
where were you
when white washed walls
pulled my eyes from my skull
crushed them, put them back
into their holes and stole my pulse

[what a shameful seed you seem to see]
when there is no light to refract and no blood in your arteries

I watched you like a vulture
betrayer, devouring her souls
wonting, waning, wishing
that I was blind aside from the gall
in the back of my mind

oh my heavenly father
is all I keep hearing you say but
you forgot about your daughter
and the makeshift clay she became

[such a shameful seed you seem to see]
when there is no light to refract and no blood in your arteries

all I see are
{Savages, savages}
barely even human
Savage
