The Divinity of Purpose Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Put It to the Torch (2:12)
Am I supposed to be sorry, my words struck a nerve
Am I supposed to be sorry that I lift dust where my footsteps once were
Maybe I’m supposed to care for grand ideas never expressed
It took no heart, pierced through so clear
More verbal piss in the well of your fear
Here’s your apology, here’s to burning out
And here’s to fading away
Fuck you both, I just put it to the torch

So with those new found ideals
You’ll be well on your way
And changing agendas is part of your game
Your sense of entitlement strengthens your pain
It shows on your twisted face
Wearing a drawn out shade
I take it all and I put it to the torch
I torch it all without a shred of remorse
Here’s your apology, here’s to burning out
And here’s to fading away
Fuck you both, I just put it to the torch
Put it to the torch
And let it burn!
Oh torch it!
2. Honor Never Dies (3:13)
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone

When the limelight grows dim
And our heroes fade away
Some men still fight silent battles until their final days
Some will be forgotten having no one know their names
But I stand here grateful for the courage that they gave

Chorus:
I am just a son
A brother, a father and a friend
No more, not any less
I am just another man still fighting
But I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t taught that
Honor never dies

When your heart is questioned
There are hearts with hope still beating
Waiting for footsteps that might not come
Born with nothing just a weight to carry through life
And the journey they are on

Chorus:
I am just a son
A brother, a father and a friend
No more, not any less
I am just another man still fighting
But I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t taught that
Honor never dies

When your heart is questioned
Honor never dies
When your beliefs are tested

Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
Sometimes standing for what you believe
Means standing alone
3. Own Your World (3:39)
Who's got more heart than you?
No one [x4]

Of all the questions I've asked myself
This answer I must prove

You're just sliding painfully back
If you're not striving forward
Some think they know where your devotion ends
Let them swallow their words
Make your stand
Burn the bridge
Burn the bridge to the place where your fear lives
Make your stand
Burn the bridge
Burn every bridge to the places fear live

Fists up, head high!
We own the fucking world tonight
Fists up, head high!
One flame can light a million

Own your world
It's in your hands
Own your world
Strive to find the heart

They think the promises broken lift the blade to flesh
Light to hold back words that tear through they're all just
Spiritless
Make your stand
Burn the bridge
Burn the bridge to the place where your fear lives
Make your stand
Burn the bridge
Burn every bridge to the places fear live

Fists up, head high!
We own the fucking world tonight
Fists up, head high!
We own the fucking world tonight
Fists up, head high!
One flame can light a million

Some live by the limits set upon them
Others will commit
To the task of destroying them
Some will be defined by the past that haunts them
Other will commit to their will undaunted

Own your world
It's in your hands
Own your world
Strive to find the heart

Who's got more heart than you?
No one [x4]
Of all the questions I've asked myself
This answer I must prove
4. The Language (3:14)
To have the thickest skin
And still walk so tall
For years & even now
They pray to watch me fall
Their petty words & ways
Gave me the needed vision
To ignite change and give strength
To some who lost their direction

Their breath is wasted
It's such a bitter pill to choke on
Their time is fleeting, passing
Waiting for my swan song
Tearing me down
Will never raise you any higher
Criticize, condemn, complain
The mirror show who takes the blame

The language you speak is dead
Dead
Dishonored, disgraced
The language you speak is dead
Dead
Damaged, buried
The language you speak is dead
Dead
Indifferent, forgotten
The language you speak is dead
Dead
There's never been a war where only one side bled

Still dreaming demise
And you'll see and you'll see it
The lost prophesize, they believe it believe it
Goes deeper inside, if you let it you let it
Now spead of the end
And you'll get it, you'll get it

Tearing their wings
Will never raise you higher
You only damn yourself
You only damn yourself
Criticize, condemn, complain
The mirror show who takes the blame

The language you speak is dead
Dead
Dishonored, disgraced
The language you speak is dead
Dead
Damaged, buried
The language you speak is dead
Dead
Indifferent, forgotten
The language you speak is dead
Dead
There's never been a war where only one side bled

When you kill trust
There is no ressurection
5. Before the Fight Ends You (3:17)
Let's go

Standing here again as the words
Fail to hit the page
Towering in silence straining thoughs
To create
There's no safe words
There's no stasis
There's no fixing the broken places
I see just one more chance for redemption
A selfless child's dream of ascension

End the fight
Before the fight ends you
This could be the day
Things only fall in the hands we raise
End the fight
Before the fight ends you
Of all the lies I've told
This is the least untrue

All the pictures didn't change but the poeple in them did
Monuments don't always crumble
When the pillars have
Maybe the light is fading
As the tunnel closes in
But who are you to see this
As this journey just begins

Forgetting nothing
Forgiving so much less
The devil you thought you never knew
Is now the one that knows you the best
Now end the fight

End the fight
Before the fight ends you
This could be the day
Things only fall in the hands we raise
End the fight
Before the fight ends you
Of all the lies I've told
This is the least untrue

I try to forget yesterday
When I'm living through today
And I don't know what tomorrow brings
Or what it might take away

Forgetting nothing
Forgiving so much less
The devil you thought you never knew
Is now the one that you know the best
Now end the fight
6. Indivisible (2:55)
Unfinished,
Are the issues we wait until tomorrow to confront
Unpunished,
Are the deeds we do to gain us what we want
Intentions,
Have to be genuine so that it may be felt
Decisive,
We will be, once we clear the past from our present self

This bond
No force can sever
This time
Was never better
These words
Our generation
Let's scream the anthem for every nation

Let's scream, let's scream
Let's scream the anthem for every nation

Divided,
Is how they want us for their control
Becoming,
A threat to the freedoms that they stole

This bond
No force can sever
This time
Was never better
These words
Our generation
Let's scream the anthem for every nation
Indivisible

Profits over people
Propaganda over truth
Bias before balance
Our future will be the victim that they choose

Becoming
This bond, no force can sever
Decisive
This time, was never better
Determined
These words, our generation
Bruised & Battered, let's scream, broke & bleeding
Counted out but never beaten

Let's scream an anthem for every nation
Indivisible

Let's scream for every nation
Let's scream an anthem for every nation

Indivisible
7. Dead Man Breathing (3:19)
I've grown colder
Than any other stone turned
Than any road crossed
On my way
I've grown colder
Than earth under foot
Than wind at my back
Now scabbed & cracked
I've grown colder
Just like your father
And his father before
Through the endless storm
I've grown colder
Than I ever was, beyond my beliefs
Will this ever cease?

It's begun
Choose your hell
You are no exception
I don't want to be another dead man breathing

Cold, I've grown colder than I ever was before
Cold, now, all I see are dead men breathing

For those who once rejoiced
I've grown cold
for those who feared & hated
I've grown cold
who can't escape their grief
I've grown cold
Don't want to be another dead man breathing

I've grown colder
Than the mercy of whose looking down
Upon the silent graves of all who once paid with sins
I've grown colder
Than all those who wasted trust
Opening the gates without acknowledging the cost

It's begun
Choose your hell
You are no exception
Hands cannot drown the sounds of better men screaming

It's begun
Live to tell
Don't deny the instinct
I don't want to be another dead man breathing

It's begun
Choose your hell
You are no exception
Hands cannot drown the sounds of better men screaming

Don't want to be another dead man breathing
I'll curse & fight till my heart stops beating
Until my heart stops beating

It's begun
Choose your hell
You are no exception
Hands cannot drown the sounds of better men screaming

It's begun
Live to tell
Don't deny the instinct
I don't want to be another dead man breathing
8. The Divinity of Purpose (3:40)
When the odds were stacked against me
I needed someone by my side
And when the world left no place for me
I needed someone by my side
And when the skies crashed down upon me
I looked for someone by my side
Yu were there, when no one else was
Yu showed me what's born doesn't always die

You showed me what's born doesn't always die
Divinity
The divinity of purpose
This is my divinity
The divinity of purpose

Found a way into my thoughts and voiced the true outrage
Found me with feet to edge and helped me step away
Found me with just a whisper left and turned it into screams
And even on my weakest days you helped me find the strenght

When the odds were stacked against me
I needed someone by my side
And when the world left no place for me
I needed someone by my side
And when the skies crashed down upon me
I looked for somenone by my side
You were there, when no one else was
You showed me what's born doesn't always die

Now I see divinity
The divinity of purpose

I heard the message above discord
Channeling the hate within
Felt the pain of discipline was less than that of regret
Lifted one foot from the grave when the purpose showed its face
And even on my weakest days you helped me find the strenght

When the odds were stacked against me
I needed someone by my side
And when the world left no place for me
I needed someone by my side
And when the skies crashed down upon me
I looked for somenone by my side
You were there, when no one else was
You showed me what's born doesn't always die

Divinity
The divinity of purpose
This is my divinity
The divinity of purpose
9. Nothing Scars Me (3:07)
What becomes as red sight sees life
Lies and the mouths that birth them, sworn to abide
Cutting the lifeless pieces, rotted by time
Strangled by shadows in the coldest light

Nothing you say scares me anymore

Nothing,scars me
Nothing fucking scars me

Reminding acceptance
Of matters I'll never control
So save me your venom
Your time is served better
Saving what's left of your soul

You told me what was never said
You showed me who was hopellesly done wrong
Those visions came to pass
Those needles tears are gone

You'll never scar wha'ts inside
Now I'm the one who decides

Reminding acceptance
Of matters I'll never control
So save me your venom
Your time is served better
Saving what's left of your soul
Now revel in blindness
Digging & digging yourself into another hole
Now heaven takes the pieces
You tried to hide them now this dies inside them

Nothing you say scars me anymore

Nothing, scars me
Nothing fucking scars me
Nothing you say scars me anymore
10. Bitter Truth (2:39)
How many ways to languish
How many ways to fail
How many ways to die too soon
You can't choose one it chooses you

Some of the choices, we make
All along the way, can destroy us
The bitter truth cuts both ways

The stories written in our eyes
I'd rather suffer for the truth
Than prosper from a lie

How many ways to judge me
How many places to wash ashore
How many ways to feel nothing again
Another mistake i once thought was a friend

Some of the choices, we make
All along the way, can destroy us
The bitter truth cuts both ways

The stories written in our eyes
I'd rather suffer from the truth
Than prosper from a lie

Some of the choices, we make
All along the way, can destroy us

The bitter truth cuts both ways
11. Boundless (Time to Murder It) (3:21)
I've got a bullet for the shame
A toe tag for the spite
A body bag for the envy
A coffin for their guilt
Headstones in their place
A shovel tells the memories

So take this message how you want
Today it ends now I choose what you control

'Cause it's time, our time
Confront what you've always denied
And be boundless

It's time
Reach within and find
The nemesis inside
'Cause it's time to murder it

Oh le'ts go

I've got your epitaph written
Elegy to scream
A hole dug deep for the gluttony
Sever strings of doubt
No need for last rites
False prayers no one's hearing

So take this message how you want
Today it ends now i choose what you control
And I'm not sorry for your loss
As the coffin shuts on everything you know

'Cause it's time, our time
Confront what you deny 'cause it's time to be boundless

I want what it take to be boundless
I know what it is to be boundless
I can't let this nemesis survive
I must reach inside cause it's time

Time to fucking murder it

It's time [x3]
Confront what you always deny cause it's time to be boundless
