Selves We Cannot Forgive Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. For Red Cloud (6:48)
(fearing, breaking, clawing, shaking) Eternal, internal.
Desperate human alive, conscience can not survive.
Rain drops will never become the storm.
Rain drops will never become… It’ll always be the same for us.
Fighting tooth and nail to ignore.
(fearing, breaking, clawing, shaking) Eternal, internal.
Desperate human alive, conscience can not survive.
We sleep through crucial days… Enemies of our descendents; We, the deceived.
Psychologically dependent On lies to believe.
We speak in shattered ways… Enemies of our descendents; We, the deceived. Psychologically dependent On lies to believe.
(fearing, breaking, clawing, shaking) Eternal, internal.
Desperate human alive, conscience can not survive.
Rain drops will never become the storm. Rain drops will never become…
2. Sorrowpsalm (6:30)
This space, not mine; A fragile body holding purest form of death… I’ll crawl in cold, wakeful terror and clutch to my miracle; To the nothing I have left. Found, I’m fallow; In the circles I traverse I have not felt, A sense of sin in my silence, a self in my sadness; This hand that I have dealt. Gaze toward a setting sun… Take time, you dying ones… Our psalm is one of sorrow, our psalm is one of pain; And bitterness of knowing we’ll never laugh again. The pit to hold our bodies was dug by those ordained. Our god is one of sorrow, our god is one of pain. Those gone before. Spoken, no more. This face, not mine; A fragile body holding purest form of death… I’ll crawl in cold, wakeful terror and clutch to my miracle; To the nothing I have left. Sound, I’m shallow; In the circles I traverse I have not felt, A sense of sin in my silence, a self in my sadness; As I beg to… Gaze toward a setting sun… Take time, you dying ones… Our psalm is one of sorrow, our psalm is one of pain; And bitterness of knowing we’ll never laugh again.
3. Again (5:39)
We’ll meet eginning’s end, and start again. Just in time for us to mend, we’ll die again.
Sever spine, Realign. All this time, Never mine.
4. Belie the Machine (8:59)
A species was chosen to lie for.
A species was chosen to tame.
A brain stem, emotion, and devastation; Logic suppressed, spirit stripped away.
A human was told what to stand for.
A human was told who to blame.
No questions for answers that retch for freedom; Consumed in fire, mortar, and scorched clay.
Feign grace, save face at all cost.
Now take our place with all that we’ve lost.
Belie the machine that hurts you and you are ashamed.
Belie the machine that breaks you and you are to blame.
Here lie all the lives deserted, kept from the light.
A human was told what to stand for.
A human was told who to blame.
No questions for answers that retch for freedom; Consumed in fire, mortar,
and scorched clay.
A reason was chosen to die for.
A reason that no one could name.
A grave for its creatures with no distinction.
Logic suppressed, spiritstripped away.
Feign grace, save face at all cost.
Now take our place with all that we’ve lost.
Belie the machine that hurts you and you are ashamed.
Belie the machine that breaks you and you are to blame.
Here lie all the lives deserted, kept from the light of day.
We will be shaken by the earth, and forsaken by the sun; As cursed rite of birth is frantically undone.
Backwards and downwards, through right and left nerves; Stripped of all garments while gasping for words.
Black sky above and infinite below, Manifestations we no longer know.
This is not a dream; This indignity.
Writhe internally.
Wake eternally.
Feign grace, save face at all cost.
Now take our place with all that we’ve lost.
Belie the machine that hurts you and you are ashamed.bn
Belie the machine that breaks you and you are to blame.
5. Selves We Cannot Forgive (5:18)
Broken in all its beauty.
Processed by pallid eyes.
Bound together intribulation.
Beg to see beyond the sky.

Broken vessel shorn of beauty.
Purity in pallid eyes.
Lost inside its tribulation.
Nothing lives beyond our sky.

Hold onto hope forever.
Devote it all with sobbing eyes.
Love despite our wrathful nations,
and never shake the urge to die.

Imploding in all directions,
As my name is forgotten.
This broken worldly implication,
we will never be forgiven.

Living as the selves we can not forgive.
Leaving for the selves we can not forgive.

Imploding in all directions,
As my name is forgotten.
This broken worldly implication,
we will never be forgiven.

Imploding in all directions,
As my name is forgotten.
This broken worldly implication,
Doubles back and scours me.
6. Transmit to Disconnect (6:28)
The depths that I’ve reached to become what you need…
These deeds are my own but they sharply were forced out of me.
Decaying, these dreams demolish my peace, The truth has been shown but it surely will not be set free.
All these things were not for me, and this agony, forgone conclusion;
Timeless, hopeless, boundless lie.
Enabled you, the reason, and this agony, forgone conclusion; Timeless, hopeless, boundless lie.
Timeless, hopeless, boundless lie.
The depths that I’ve reached to become what you need…
These deeds are my own but they sharply were forced out of me.
Decaying, these dreams demolish my peace, The truth has been shown but it surely will not be set free.
Punished for my peace, so lowly Even vermin will not clean Flesh from broken bone, so lowly Devastated sight unseen.
…And all the things I can’t control have slowly rotted me. I am the afferent misstep.
For all this talk of taking toll on my environment; I transmit to disconnect.
The depths that I’ve reached to become what you need…
These deeds are my own but they sharply were forced out of me.
Decaying, these dreams demolish my peace, The truth has been shown but it surely will not be set free.
All these things were not for me, and this agony, forgone conclusion; Timeless, hopeless, boundless lie.
Enabled you, the reason, and this agony, forgone conclusion;
Timeless, hopeless, boundless lie.
Timeless, hopeless, boundless lie.
7. Matriarch (7:21)
Patriarchal generations.
Litanies of guilt and shame.
Walk the line of his creation.
Carry on his ghastly name.
Mother asks her child why, The child did not let her die.
On bed of tears the tired mother lies, Her son, a man undone inside.
When all is still and silent, This deep wound is exposed.
With broken door forced open, All other doors are closed.
Mother asks her child why, The child did not let her die.
On bed of tears the tired mother lies, Her son, a man undone inside.
Patriarchal generations.
Litanies of guilt and shame.
Walk the line of his creation.
Carry on his ghastly name.
When all is still and silent, This deep wound is exposed.
With broken door forced open, All other doors are closed.
When all is still and silent, This deep wound is exposed.
With broken door forced open, All other doors are closed.
(We are done fighting, tear down the sun and moon.)
8. Vicious Lives (4:25)
Pouring out of you. They’re reaching out to you.
The hands of love, the hands of liars; those that warned of this loss.
Running next to you.
They’re surrounding you.
The other sides of vicious lives, the spirit of longing and loss.
This spirit walks along a borderline.
Yours or mine? Pay no mind.
It speaks of nothing but wasted time.
Yours and mine.
Yours and mine.
But there is nothing worth changing.
Erase us.
Erase us.
But there is nothing worth changing.
Erase us.
Erase us.
Please, there is nothing worth changing.
Erase us.
Erase us.
Please, there is nothing worth changing.
Erase us.
Disgrace us.
