The Last Word Is Yours to Speak Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Throes (0:54)
Instrumental
2. Fleshkiller (3:53)
Ignite my veins with your blood to inspire new verses
I'm drained to my dregs
Replace my eyes with your fire to burn through the curses
Leave nothing that could hinder your blinding light

Test me in the furnace of affliction
Refine me as you wish
When the die is cast
Breathe in me your animating spark

I won't flinch when the Earth gives way
So take me now
It's not my blood to bleed
I won't flinch when the Earth gives way
So I cry out:
The last word is yours to speak

Sharpen my tongue with precision only your words convey
I've kept waiting too long
Breathe in my lungs a passion that strangles corruption
Till there's nothing left

Fleshkiller
We're engraved on your hand

Test me in the furnace of affliction
Refine me as you wish
When the die is cast
Breathe in me your animating spark

I won't flinch when the Earth gives way
So take me now
It's not my blood to bleed
I won't flinch when the Earth gives way
So I cry out:
The last word is yours to speak

Fleshkiller
Disease has no grasp on your reign
Fleshkiller
Prison cells won't contain your light

With every crushing blow
we are engraved upon your hand

I won't flinch when the Earth gives way
So take me now
It's not my blood to bleed
I won't flinch when the Earth gives way
So I cry out:
The last word is yours to speak
3. The Deepest of Graves (3:32)
Every time my eyes fall to the stare of the unknown
You take the night and replace it with your dawn
When my path is unclear and my courage starts to fade
You sow life in the deepest of graves

Somewhere between bearing my shame
and wearing my pain
You still find it in you to love me
for who I am

When I fall prey to the snares of distrust
You're reaching out or I'd be crushed
Break my fears and shatter my guilt
An eternity of weight is gone

Bearing my shame
and wearing my pain
You still find it in you to love me
Somewhere between bearing my shame
and wearing my pain
You still find it in you to love me
for who I am

I never cease to fail you
But you still love me past my debt

You sow life in the deepest of graves

(For miles) I see no end to your flowing grace
You sow life in the deepest of graves

Bearing my shame
and wearing my pain
You still find it in you to love me
Somewhere between bearing my shame
and wearing my pain
You still find it in you to love me
for who I am
4. Blood on My Knuckles (3:32)
Face your wrath

I followed your shadow
to the devil's lair
Upon a pale horse,
pierced, gaunt and red
Trampling the chests of demons
and not looking back
The weight of redemption on my shoulders
when you said;

"I would give you more gold than you could fit in your fists,
the entire world is at your fingertips."

Face your rage
and your hounds will turn on their own
With each nail
I will break your every bone

Black and blue color my skin;
that smirk leaves your face
Reciprocated tenfold
when I break your curse
Hoisted up and bound by a traitor
I left him in a field;
his insides feed the birds

"I would give you more gold than you could fit in your fists,
the entire world is at your fingertips."

Face your rage
'Wrath' is too weak a word

When I rise your fate is sealed
There will be nothing left but the blood on my knuckles

'Wrath' is too weak a word
Face your rage
and your hounds will turn on their own
With these nails
I will break your every bone
5. Twisted (3:38)
You breed malice into your pews
Like death you never have enough

Spewing your poison
over the four corners of the world
You're twisted in knots
pouring salt in every wound
Spewing your poison
like seeds of discontent
Flaunting your hate
as a means of backwards religion

Hell is not low enough to contain your depravity
Hell is not low enough to truly describe where you're heading

Your mouth is a festering wound
Never shut long enough to heal
Like death you never have enough
So your thirst will be quenched
It's just a matter of time before you beg due recompense
All the hate you spew will not save you before them

Death you never have enough
Like death you never have enough

Fall to your knees
Your redeemer's robes won't save you
and even your rules betray you
You breed malice into your pews
and make them suffer under your abuse

You breed malice into your pews
Like death you never have enough

Fall to your knees, Pharisee
and burn

Your mouth is a festering wound
Never shut long enough to heal
Like death you never have enough
So your thirst will be quenched
It's just a matter of time before you beg due recompense
All the hate you spew will not save you before them

Depart from me for I never knew you
6. De el Quatro (2:13)
Instrumental
7. Out of the Dust (3:20)
Dry up the sea,
with a word turn it all to desert sand
Turn all the lights out in the sky,
blot out all the stars

Make your presence unmistakable
and watch the devil flee
That old serpent that slipped through the cracks,
exiled back to the sea
So carry me to the foot of the throne room
or hide me in the ground
So bring me the head of the beast
or hide me in the ground

Wake up your hearts
The dead come to rise
No longer apart
Your bodies will rise
Let all those who dwelt in dust
be born in the light of the guilt you crush

The Earth resonates with your voice
Shaking the woodwork
With one swing the pride of a hopeless nation will fall down

Bring me the head of the beast
or hide me in the ground

Wake up your hearts
The dead come to rise
No longer apart
Your bodies will rise
Let all those who dwelt in dust
be born in the light of the guilt you crush

When we meet face to face
The world and the depths will separate
So bring me the head of the beast
or hide me in the ground
Bury me

I'd rather die than just sit back and watch you hurt

Tired brothers, loving sisters,
To all those who have had enough;
Your fight isn't over, you're going to press on

To a loveless generation
born to be an impending resurgence:
Let all those who dwelt in dust
be born in the light of the guilt you crush
8. The Blessing and the Curse (3:55)
Get me back to the days when I felt young
When love was beautiful
Not just a touch to con
Over these years I've deadened my nerves
Friction for validation
Take me back

You are the blessing
and I am the curse
I'm ready to run like a child
away from the hell I deserve

Waiting in this darkened room
You're still fresh on my lungs
Hoping for a sign to prove I'm over the edge
Cut me from what's burnt on my eyes
Cut me away
I still wear you branded on my skin

You are the blessing
and I am the curse
I'm ready to run like a child
away from the hell I deserve
You are the garden
and I am the drought
I'm emptied over the weeks away
Too fond of this bed to see it out

Are my roots too low?
Am I drying up too fast to follow?
Have my veins run dry?
Will I ever hear your voice again
or feel your healing hand?

(Even in the storm, I can hear you now)
Cut me away from the lies that this world has fed me
(You're still there, you call be back)
Give me a sign, I still wear her branded on my skin
(Even in the storm, I can hear you now)
Show me love for what you meant it to be
(You're still there, you call me back)
Take me back
(Even in the storm, I can hear you now)
Lest I run headfirst into my lust
(You're still there, you call me back)
and further away from any future trust
9. Dyson Sphere (5:11)
The confines of my eyes but allow a sliver of light
Upon a pale blue sphere what purpose could I have
Climb with me to the top of the clouds
But I find that I am truly alone

Can you hear my cicada's song
droning through the darkness?
Blurring the words and fading the meaning
until only static is left
Climb with me to the top of the clouds
But I find that I am truly alone

'I am who contains the universe
who makes the ocean floor a road
I am who cranes the stars in place
I am who your mind cannot encase
Can you even think of me without reducing me?'

I want to see you in all your glory
Clothed in clouds too big of a story
I wanna see you in all of your glory
I want to see you in all your glory
Prove it to me
I want to see you in all your glory
Clothed in clouds too big of a story
I want to see you in all of your glory
Prove it to me

'You'd be lost to madness...

Can you even think of me without reducing me?
I piece together dislocated limbs of the galaxy

I'm looking down from the clouds all over creation
while you cling to the filthy means but it's my blood that you're washed in
Look up to the stars that I've set out like lanterns
to illuminate my child superseding your ransom
You live your life in the cracks of an infinite canvas
A mere fraction of a note in eternal stanzas

The beginning, the end and what comes after
They point to me: I am their master'
10. Manipulator's Wire (3:55)
Witness the fate of a generation
Bring me your sutures
I'll rip them out
Your past is evident
Held together by string

Are you really yourself
or do your demons still haunt you?
Are you really yourself?
Your past owns you
Your stitches are your manipulator's wire

Dread the night where the blood blends with the rest
You'll be shown what you've hidden away
Swept under the rug
Now the destruction refuses to relent
You'll be found drowning in shadows
if you breathe your past

Gauze and string won't mend your wounds
Burying your future in oblivion
Your past owns you

Dread the night where the blood blends with the rest
You'll be shown what you've hidden away
Swept under the rug
Now the destruction refuses to relent
You'll be found drowning in shadows
if you breathe your past

Your past owns you

Seethe all you corpses to scorch and deceive

Are you really yourself
Or do your demons still haunt you?
Manipulator's wire

Dread the night where the blood blends with the rest
You'll be shown what you've hidden away
Swept under the rug
Now the destruction refuses to relent
You'll be found drowning in shadows
Your past owns you

Seethe all you corpses to scorch and deceive
11. Salting the Mine (3:38)
We're only looking back to see the miles we've left behind
What we thought was finished has only marked the beginning
I'm done with wasting my time to pay for your trend
You've been played out for years and it makes me so sick to watch

We walk a tight rope to stay alive
You repeat yourself over and over
It's another day, another lie
They will chew you up just to spit you out

We're only looking back to see the miles we've left behind
What we thought was finished has only marked the beginning

The more you talk the less your words hold weight
A herd of cattle led to the butcher's block and put to sleep

A wise man once told me that "the only originality left is honesty." - [Seth Webster]

We walk a tight rope to stay alive
You repeat yourself over and over
It's another day, another lie
They will chew you up just to spit you out

So don't buy in, you're just another ticket sold

We walk a tight rope to stay alive
You repeat yourself over and over
It's another day, another lie
They will chew you up just to spit you out

We walk a tight rope to stay alive
It's getting old
It's another day, another lie
Don't buy in you're just another ticket sold

They'll chew you up just to spit you out
So don't buy in
I'm not gonna pay for your trend
12. From a Burning Sun (5:10)
To think of all the lives they've taken
Thrown in an endless void
Worth is not assigned by a man on a screen
Nor love by where we sleep
We conceal who we truly are
In hopes to thrill an audience
But there's not enough make up in this world
To cover all our scars

A coward said that you'll never amount to anything
You've still got the breath in your lungs enough to fight the apathy

Raise your voices loud and clear
They will tremble when they hear
We are not abandoned anymore
We're aiming to find you now
This is the last time you sell us out
We will not be silent anymore

Desensitizing every truth we hold
A dystopic nightmare
Worth is not assigned by a man on a screen
Nor love by where we sleep

Raise your voices loud and clear
They will tremble when they hear
We are not abandoned anymore
We are aiming to find you now
This is the last time you sell us out
We will not be silent anymore

Reveal yourself for who you are
Apathy is dead

A coward said that you'll never amount to anything
You've still got the breath in your lungs enough to fight the apathy
So walk out from behind those gates and feel the sun burn upon your face
You will be bestowed a new name etched in stone
Born in flame

We are born from a burning sun
We are more than what's inside the gates we're from
Apathy is dead
Reveal yourself for who you are
13. WWII (5:19)
Dear father I must first confess
that from the stone inside my chest
I have nothing to offer you

I'm shaken by your righteousness
at a loss of words to do justice
so grant me grace in silence

I will learn to love you
and abandon the rest

If your children lost their voice to sing
and fled the shadow of your wing
would you reveal yourself to us?

Crashing waves calm at your feet
but further still my body sinks
I am a man of little faith

But I will learn to love you
and abandon the rest

Not abandoned
Bound by grace we sing
You are my everything

My last breath is yours
My last breath is yours to breathe

My last word is yours
My last word is yours to speak

To love you and abandon the rest
