Diatribe Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Inveigh
Patient, reckless
All in and boundless
I doubt all things
End in my eye now
I choose to live
For what reason, I don't get it
Yet I choose to live
Should I die, don't regret it
A reason hides for everything
My art left behind
A reason hides for everything
Question the meaning
Reprise unheard
Inveigh my passion
Never too late for proliferation
You choose to live
For what reason, you don't get it
Yet you choose to live
Nearing death, don't regret it
A reason hides for everything
Your art's left behind
A reason hides for everything
2. Critical Mass
Futile, wasted, fallout
Blasting the decent and thinking you're better
You're no one
Spare us your glaring and judgmental thinking
You know not
One more self-entitled faker
Just a smartass without wit
Fake laughs don't hide all, you know
You don't impress anybody
Who's secure and well aware
Misplaced ego, undeserved
(You are nothing! You are nothing!)
Futile, wasted, fallout
Washed up tweaking failure
Blasting the decent and thinking you're better
You're no one
Spare us your glaring and judgmental thinking
You know not
Nothing completed and hating yourself
Because you're weak
No self-perception, I want nothing more than you…
Burned!
3. Delegates
"Kill", everyone says on the defense
Flogging their own kind to death
Losing more than blood and sweat
Ammunition spreads the waste
Gasping for air, the solider said to me
"Take a look around. War is everywhere."
Son carries the flag, carries his gun
Bearing the sins of his father
Everyone will pay the price
But calibration has no cost
The man who says aloud "everyone's the same"
Doesn't life afar, he lives inside of us
He's the one to fear, he's the one to die
Home's a battlefield
War is everywhere
For a moment, there was peace
For a moment, I saw God
We weren't foes, we were friends
What the hell happened?
Some will fight 'til the bitter end
For a moment, there was peace
For a moment, I saw God
Where you feel safe, it may never last
Take a look around
War is everywhere
4. Recollect
One more statement
I'm not crazy, yet you think so
You are the same: desperately escaping
My grieving
Life in the now
All the world was fine back then
What a lie I choose to tell
Cherishing memory of a younger me
When fresh air and landmarks mattered the most
A perfect place and time
Only now that life has gone all wrong
Editing history
Rewinding
Salvage the tape
Escaping tormenting
Turn lights off
Travel in time
I realize it's romanticizing the past
I know better, there was always death,
there was always conflict, there was always loss
But I didn't know it yet
Neither did you, so remember that
As you stomp your victim, you are stomping a child
Don't lay this guilt trip on me
I didn't ask for any of this
How would I like it instead? I don't know,
but better than this shit
Maybe what I want only exists in my head
Maybe it does! So pad the goddamn cell!
Leave me to my memories!
One day I'll have to lay myself to rest
Get your hands off
Don't you touch me
Let me stay here
Chasing a ghost
Watching then
Moving on, holding on
Where does it all stop?
One day I'll have to lay myself to rest
Sleep, child
Just sleep
5. True Noir
Thinking too much alone again
Watching all in disgust again
Just enough heart I have to care
Not enough to forgive your crime
I don't need any goddamn statute
I have my own ethos
This is what I've come to believe
You'll get what you have given
I am God, I am Hell
Who has the right to justice?
Popular opinion? Trial and a verdict?
Call of a vigilante
Who has the right to justice?
Voting majority? Trial and a verdict?
Call of a vigilante for all
For the victims, live or deceased
I dedicate passion
For defenseless you have torn
I will tear you to pieces
I am God, I am Hell
("In a mad world, only the mad are sane")
Who has the right to justice?
Popular opinion? Trial and a verdict?
Call of a vigilante
Who has the right to justice?
Voting majority? Trial and a verdict?
Call of a vigilante
For all you've harmed
For those disgraced
For those ignored
No one will think it's fantasy
When the bodies are piling
I'm no hero, not a villain
So what the hell am I?
I'm just one
You're just one
Take 'em down!
6. Sinister Veil
Dreams built for kings by those who live nightmares
In a land where liars own the truth
Civil unrest, a rare devotion
And everyone just follows along
Working hard and no reward
Face all that fell as moving towards regret
Those in charge say "be responsible"
Excuses made to steer the blame
And everyone just follows along
Well, someone's always watching you
If you dare: never kill without a plan
Uprise or fail
Sinister veil
Uprise or fail
Now you know what's coming to ya'
Another day, another dollar
Because you're told it's worth it
Uprise or fail
Sinister veil
Uprise or fail
7. Wound
Silent remorse
True solace absent
Missing dearly
Mourning in daze
I'm stripped of faith
It's a major loss, it's a major wound to bear
The kind that doesn't fade, the kind that doesn't heal
Here I stand with your remains
I always intended to reach out again
I see now I have no control over anything
I'm stripped of faith again
It's a major loss, it's a major wound to bear
Forced to move on without you
Without you
It's a major loss, it's a major wound to bear
The kind that doesn't fade, the kind that doesn't heal
Here I stand with your remains
Rest in peace
8. The Hearing
I've killed everyone in here!
You're dead… you just don't know it yet!
Ranting inhibitions! Ranting inhibitions!
I've killed everyone in here!
You're dead… you just don't know it yet!
Poisoned philosophy, a rant and a killing spree
I hate in exchange of the glares from gravely uninformed
Should another to the same, I say he's wrong to
But it's me in my own head, defending my own rage
Poisoned philosophy, a rant and a killing spree
Unfair and biased in a fit to reach the top
When out of victims and drive, I'll do like my father:
Get drunk with some pain pills, and die!
I've killed everyone in here!
You're dead… you just don't know it yet!
Ranting inhibitions! Ranting inhibitions!
I've killed everyone in here!
You're dead… you just don't know it!
9. No Saint
You're no saint
Damning bodies fleeting of souls
Follow brainless teachings of old
In hopes of owning masses
Spitting venom, calling it "faith"
For twisted, sick ideals
Their book becomes a crutch and a shield
Their theory in the role of a sword
How dare you point the finger
You got nothing on me, and you, sir,
Are no goddamn saint
You're no saint
The fallen always victims to tease
You hide with false security
Prepared for your deception
Some will never believe
The tricks you're crawling through
Again the fates have proven it wrong
Irony has finished the job
In my time or another
Your entire plan of control
Will only bring you hell
Through history it has always shown
Your time to own up
Is right fucking now
Captured, convinced as a child
That way, you never outgrow it
Demand your new birth in freedom
Their book becomes a crutch and a shield
Their theory in the role of a sword
How dare you point the finger
You got nothing on me, and you, sir,
Are no goddamn saint
You're no saint
10. Dusk to Dawn
They call me an old soul
Tired of the ups and downs
How much more can I take?
They call me a young fool
Never am I satisfied
How much more can I give?
Like dusk to dawn
I feel the same
Like dusk to dawn
I wait for change
