So Sedated, So Secure Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. An Epitaph
The future five align.

Empty promises find us all the time.

Would you put it all on the line for the lost and frozen years?

Leave us the bastard sons.

Leave us the broken ones-

To fend for ourselves, one by one.

An epitaph not worth looking back.

Another sunset falls on red on black.

We hit a wall of dotted lines.

An epitaph not worth looking back.

Post cards of dust on bones.

If the bad news doesn't beat us home.

A rusted chain of sympathy for time well wasted,

losses faded.

A rusted chain of sympathy for time well wasted,

losses...
2. So Sedated, So Secure
I feel so sick

So sick again

Just when I thought it went away

This time there's nothing I can take

To calm it down, to make it sleep

All this spent waiting

For a cure that's just beyond reach

One more forgotten day in line

One more desperate cling to control

Just don't wake up from this routine

This plastic mask covers everything

I heard you say you had the answer

A quick fix-- an easy way out

This time I'll try anything

To be so sedated, so secure
3. The Hollow
Stripped to the bone

Left standing alone

You want everything

And find falling home

Follow-- follow the hollow

And now there's no one left to burn

Nothing to lose, nothing to earn

Did you find what you were looking for?

Was the greed worth selling yourself for?

A bloodlust so deep it cuts

With the faith of a sadist's

Healing touch

And you follow the hollow

Your life is wrapped around greed addiction

And you follow the hollow

Your life is wrapped around the things you need

Addiction
4. Another Reason
Keep your eyes on the trigger

And your mind on the ecstasy

Just caress the emptiness

Sit back and let it bleed

We need salvation

We need another god on the TV screen

We need to believe

Fill your pockets with other's casualties

Just a talk show leaper prophecy

Just caress the emptiness

Sit back and let it bleed

Can you show me happiness?

Can you show me the other side of the prison chain?

Can you show me primetime addiction?

Sadistic delusion

Our father, Our sponsor, Our cheap plastic figure

Our father, Our sponsor

Can you spare one more dollar?
5. No Closer Than A Stranger
You are a servant to your god

You are a slave to a book

You say you are just a messenger

But you'll end up hooked

This place feels like home

Walls echo, screaming no

This tough love feels

Like I'm being choked

Dependant on a whim

Bow down before him

You suckle righteousness

And siphon lies

This rope feels like home

My mouth is gagged

My hands are bound

This tough love feels like

I'm being drowned

And in a daze one day

You'll wake up old and gray

And realize you've alienated

Those who cared about you

Say you will forgive me me again

Your pride is the birth of your original sin

Say I can be saved again

Well I won't and I think you know

Because of you

This is not all for him

It's for you

The blessed father

Tainted blood of a martyr
6. A Cold Kiss
Of a dying breed and a decaying seed

We've been watching for years

Waiting for it to bleed

Handshakes and contracts

Just before they turn their backs

We've played along for far too long

We've played along for far too long

We'll lay this down to waste

We'll leave you with a bitter taste

A long road no closer to home

Long road and we know we're still alone

We've played for far too long

We hope you listen to at least this song

Nothing but traces

Countless empty faces

With black lips

A cold kiss

Of rejection
7. Treason In Trust
Shades of lies forming stained glass

The beauty of which distracts

Until it shatters down

Crashes down

Those whose colors shown until now

Accusations hurled at deaf ears

A link that breaks by light let in

The truth will surely fade

Ever rolling waves

Wash them away

They'll run from light they helped hide

Pointing fingers at each other

Screaming

Until the sound of truth subsides

Screaming slowly turns to singing

Songs of shadowing of lies

Lies

Rebuilding shadowing of lies

Lies

Circumstantial truth of compromise

Lies

Rebuilding shadowing of lies

Lies

Paling apathy for truth survives
8. The Last Dance Massacre
A sudden gasp for air

One false move

A blank stare is waiting for you

Try to piece it together

But you haven't a clue

A blank stare is waiting for you

It sends an impulse out

Desperately searching

Feeding off remains of it all

Another burning bridge

Another casualty paid in full

Just let it crumble down

And put to memory

Remains of the wasted years

It wouldn't be the first time

It's all come crashing down

The awful truth is finally out

It's worse than you thought

Feeding off remains of wasted years.
