lyrics

At the birth of my sonic creed I said, "My sentence is almost done."

I hold an open arm to the cavalry

Run me through and see my blood churn

A gavel formed in chivalry

As my skull crashes to the earth

Fractures will arbitrate

To free myself from your wicked ways

Chewing the flesh off my bones

Splintered teeth and a rotting tongue

Pull me into the clime

I'll never know how the weak became so arrogant

Now the saints curse for the hell of it

I feel so low while virtue is collecting dust on a shelf where character starts to rust away

All we agree on is decaying lines of old poetry and hope.

Hope? I've held that in prose,

But the wolves came down and tore the words from my throat

To keep the message from the shore

When death came down to look at me I said, "My sentence has just begun."

So I took his cloak to patch my wounds

And left that bastard on his own

I'll never know how the weak became so arrogant

Now the saints curse for the hell of it

I feel so low while virtue is collecting dust on a shelf where character starts to rust away

I can't learn about my own design without giving up a part of my life that I came to love
