The Human Romance Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Terra Nocturnus (1:16)
2. The World Engulfed In Flames (3:52)
Lie awake
It's all give and take
Wretched place
That you've never known

As you've made your way
Through the cemetery
Of mistakes that you've never made
Debts that you've never paid

Most precious waste
You could never throw away
Just one more taste
You're never gonna stray

Welcome to your fix
When you thought you had kicked
Some things just never go away

Ingrained though hazy as memories fade
Save those ones that you've never made

Most precious waste
You could never throw away
Just one more taste
You're never gonna stray

We are what you have made
The world engulfed in flames
And I'm no modern man
This is no modern land

Give me your process
Your pathetic progress
Bury me in the ultimate tomb

Give me your process
Your pathetic progress
Your posthumous prosthetic womb

Not a second too late

As you storm the gates
With the force of a thousand
Blood rush to your head
Gives you strength that you've never had

Most precious waste
You could never throw away
Just one more taste
You're never gonna stray

We are what you have made
The world engulfed in flames
And I'm no modern man
This is no modern land
3. Savor The Kill (3:48)
Says the feral instinctual side
"The thrill of the hunt"
Says the prophet of all that's been said and done
"Savor the kill"

Unsettled, severance undone
A non-living presence will never

Grow until you fall overblown
Transcend to the beat
Separate from the world of thought
The world of belief

I don't show what you already know
I'm plagued with relief
Out in plain view for all to see
They'd never believe

Compelled to separate the needs
From all you wanted the world to see

I'm no better than the
Animal in everybody
Changing your mind
Keeping the life in the

Wild have you never noticed
Everyone who thinks they know
The answer is wrong
A vision, a saying, a song

You are the fall
No master of your domain
There is no law

I'm no better than the
Animal in everybody
Changing your mind
Keeping the life in the wild

Go out into the cold dark night
Show your survival, your purpose, your plight

I'm no better than
I'm no better than
I'm no better than
The animal
4. Man And Swine (3:44)
Breathe your every breath self-obsessed a sensational place
Your winning hand cripples this impoverished state
Your business here I don't care you're not welcome to feed
Yourself to death it's just not ever gonna be enough

So chemical every scent you wear
A bath in shit all flesh and hair
Among the squeals and the selfish prayers
I never knew you were never there

Need you think you need so you live so lustfully
Peel the skin away we're all the same until you taste
Yourself but all you want is more an insatiable breed
And you will know the slaughterhouse the happy home

Pigs they think that they own you
Every pig can smell where you've been
Everybody knows a pig that wants to reform you
All those pigs they're all soulless beasts

A subtle mount a ripe affair
I'll be your accomplice anywhere
And I don't know if you even care
A cloven hoof in the mouth beware

And I've never known the difference
Between man and swine
Of rabid sex so self-aware
It happens all the time

I want you sick and slovenly
I want you all the time
No common lines to hide behind

It happens all the time
It happens all the time
It happens all the time
5. Love As A Weapon (4:00)
And with the presence of power
Comes the rebellion of innocence
We're in this all for each other
Lifetime reversal in decline

Commencing countdown the time has come
Battle lines are drawn
Commit the ashes back to the earth
Lifetime no decline or falling back to the end of the line

You've known the secret all along
Never stayed where you belong
A battleground that you adore
A heavy heart in a savage world

This is a war with love as a weapon
When all that you've lived for is gone
Heavily armed stay ready for anything
I don't believe the innocent night or day

I'm at the mercy of all i say

I don't give anything away
I don't give anything away

You've known the secret all along
Never stayed where you belong
A battleground that you adore
A heavy heart in a savage world

And it's a savage world
One that I've never known
Out of the safety of your home

This is a war with love as a weapon
When all that you've lived for is gone
Heavily armed stay ready for anything
I don't believe the innocent night or day

I'm at the mercy of all I say

I don't give anything away
I don't give anything away
6. Your Every Day Disaster (2:46)
I can't feel anything, I don't respond to pleasure or pain, a vapid void, neglected toy, saturate in shame

Is it better than, better than the rest or does this end with abruptness, shallow at best

I don't know anyone, I don't know anything but this, met with either the calm or massive resistance

And at the end of your everyday disaster, does it keep getting faster

Awaiting patiently as the circle completes, it's finally coming around, but when the smoke has cleared it's been another year

Of wasting and running around

I don't know anyone, I don't know anything but this, met with either the calm or massive resistance

And at the end of your everyday disaster, does it keep getting faster

Awaiting patiently as the circle completes, it's finally coming around, but when the smoke has cleared it's been another year

Of wasting and running and finally coming around
7. Violent By Nature (2:21)
Oh you're in the crosshairs did you ever know
You're in the process of phasing out

War for peace every treaty written in blood
Struck down with disease

Get away
Give up the prospects of
Better days
They're over you're washed up

Against your own kind the animal
Cannibalistic inseparable

War for peace every treaty written in blood
Struck down with disease

Innovations of warring clans
Sacrificial the contracts of man
Devoid of purpose or precedence
A selfish existence violent by nature

Get away
Give up the prospects of
Better days
They're over you're washed up

I'm a masochistic machine
I shit where I fuck where I eat
So don't ever listen to anything I say
Cuz I just don't believe

Anything anymore
And I've lied to myself
And I've stolen so much more but

All I need is something that's new
All that I've made I can't undo
All I need is someone like you
You're never lost I'm not confused

Fates lie to me
Lie to the faces of all that believe in
Faith the price of virtue
Paid in full is it all that you've worked for
8. Purgatory (3:46)
I'm out of balance with the earth
Out of rhythm with the moon
Just a savage primal being
To the modern world immune

To the modern world immune

There is no solace this way
I know you want me as an enemy
I know you want all you can never see
But we're all living in purgatory

Damned it's all a part of the plan
Wherever you walk and everywhere that you stand

You stand in the way

Another cycle ends too soon
Another season of monsoons
Just a savage primal being
To the modern world immune

There is no solace this way
I know you want me as an enemy
I know you want all you can never see
But we're all living in purgatory

Ascendance pretending
Immortal wandering
Look to the skies
Look to the heavens for guidance or lies

And through the depths of oblivion
Lies your living salvation

I'm out of balance with the earth
Out of rhythm with the moon
Just a savage primal being

And now it's over and there's no way
To find the solace today
I know you want me as enemy
I know you want all you can never see

We're all living in purgatory
It's so ordinary
Human oratory
We're all living in purgatory
9. Severed Separates (3:27)
Severed into separates
We are segmentary habitats
All that we know never has the structure
Gotten through

Place everyone into a maze
Watch them run around the race

Work your life away
End up in the streets
Oh the price you'll pay
Never be at ease

The need to be together
Or put in your place
Muzzled bound and tethered
A compromise you make

Involuntary crime
Flares up
A solitary life
Masks the mass hysteria
And you should know
This is no area to be alone

So work your life away
End up in the streets
Oh the price you'll pay
Never be at ease

The need to be together
Or put in your place
Muzzled bound and tethered
A compromise you make

Your process leads you
Where your thoughts misread you
A peasant once removed
Brand new set of rules
They'll never leave you
Once you shelter and feed them
Supplemented
And synchronized

Work your life away
End up in the streets
Oh the price you'll pay
Never be at ease

The need to be together
Or put in your place
Muzzled bound and tethered
A compromise you make

A compromise you make
10. Wound (3:42)
This strategy won't change
It's over when
Never do you gain
And always you win

And tragedy remains
Though we're given
Every chance to change
We don't listen just pass the blame

Sing over decay
Blood flowing the wrong way
A constant state of refusal
Now it's too late

When you're ready you will see
The maker's always been within your hands
Destroyer at your feet

Save every resolution
You never could create

When your way is the only way
You can't look at yourself and say
'I was wrong'
You've got the head of the king
On the body of a pawn

The passion of a storm
The contemplation in the eye
A separatist within our midst
A loyalist divide

When your way is the only way
You can't look at yourself and say
'I was wrong'
You've got the head of a king
On the body of a pawn

When it's not the life you want
What answers do you need
Want everything up front
Prepare to meet defeat

When its not the life you want
What answers do you need
Want everything up front

Such turbulence such turbulence
Won't go away silence never stays
And such sympathies such sympathies
Will never fade some are never made

Never made

All living is
All knowing
Or so you thought
But it's never been the same

When your way is the only way
You can't look at yourself and say
'I was wrong'
You've got the head of the king on the body of a pawn

Is this all the result
Of conflict

You know that we're not all so different
We share the same space or find a better place
And I'd give I'd give anything if this would all stop
Let me walk away
11. Terra Solaris (8:41)
12. Beyond The Life You Know (4:12)
I'm that face you think you recognized
Saw you in a dream
Saw your life flash by
Hallucinating

Looking through the crooked glass
Prison within
A prism like existence

We'll never know the truth
We'll never get a chance
To undo or relive our youth

Put every sacred place in a state of stasis nonentities
And I'm the bitter release I'm the better disease
Come down with me

A secondary life to precede visions from your past
Feeling that you've saved the worst for last
You're on the path prepared to misstep but it's never where you go
It's who you've seen and the impressions that you leave

We'll never know the truth
We'll never get a chance
To undo or relive our youth

Put every sacred place in a state of stasis nonentities
And I'm the bitter release I'm the better disease
Come down with me

Come down with me
Come down with me

Your life in control separated
What we know and who we are

Put every sacred place in a state of stasis nonentities
And I'm the bitter release I'm the better disease
Come down with me

Beyond the life you
The life you know
As a phantom as a phantom

Beyond the life you
The life you know
As a phantom as a phantom
