Deathless Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. The Scythe (3:54)
Pray for rain
To wash over the fires you made
Harvesting of the sustenance coursing my veins
New American Christ for the weak
Selling utopia
Doom is the price we pay

You're looking away
Ignoring the flames but you know
It's an altar of lies
It's an abomination of truth
The end of all hope
Before you're reborn you must die

Reap what you've sown
And come back to life
Reap what you've sown
Give blood to the scythe
Reap what you've sown
Opiate of the masses infesting the land
Salvation, that sweet taste of rapture, a mouthful of sand
Behold the new fascism, fall into line
Your covering eyes couldn't see all the fucking signs
You're looking away, you keep looking away but you know...
It's an altar of lies

It's an abomination of truth
The illusion of hope
Before you're reborn you must die

Reap what you've sown
And come back to life
Reap what you've sown
Give blood to the scythe
Reap what you've sown

Call my name
And tell me when it's all over
Pray for rain
It's all you can hope for
2. This Continuum (3:41)
Caught between this great mortal divide
Not quite dead but still not quite alive
Now go
Into the light
But I can't tell you
The reasons why
I'll never join you there

I can't face this hell alone
Spiraling through this continuum

Cheating death ain't what it used to be
Agony is all that's left of me
Now go so far away
Cause I can't bear this
Another day
I'll never join you there

I can't face this hell alone
Spiraling through this continuum
Time has taken all I've known
Smothering the life I used to love
All I've got is time... spiraling
I can't face this hell alone

Spiraling through this continuum
Time has taken all I've known
Smothering the life I used to love

In this continuum [x3]
3. Tombs (3:59)
You look at me, you see depraved execration
You stare a while then look away
I look at you, I see a slave to convention
Grieving for another day
My wars begin with suffering and fire
And end the same
Sleep well, for where you lay is where you'll die
In your grave
You wanted war, I gave you more then attention
I saw that fire in your eye
You wanted more, I'm giving pure insurrection
At least you can say that you tried
My wars begin with suffering and fire

And end the same
Sleep well, for where you lay is where you'll die
In your grave
In your tomb
4. The Blinding Light (6:06)
In my youth the ghost stepped through me, and life was never quite the same
A new dark truth, a cursed recluse, left choking on the bitter shame
I force it down, down, down to the bottom of my soul but I still can't hide
Superstition takes control and leaves me numb and paralyzed
And now I realize....
Something hallowed about this blackened beckoning
Lures me in and then devours me
This ghost erodes what I once called my life
Smell the smoke as I burn in the blinding light
Hexed and blind in the dusk of life, the shadows stretching over me
The mirror stares back, eyes stained black, the sun my mortal enemy
Screaming "why, why, why" the ghost she never seems to say
Paranoia burned my soul and now there's nothing left to take
There's nothing left to take
Something hallowed about this blackened beckoning

Lures me in and then devours me

This ghost erodes what I once called my life
Smell the smoke as I burn in the blinding light
Burn me alive in the blinding light
5. Widowed (5:46)
Hold on through the wake, dear
For the severing
I'll be here in the ether
Weathering, weathering the storm
Sing softly the eulogy
This requiem of mine
And when you're gone, I'll sing yours from the other side
Bleed on through the pain, dear
Through the suffering
I'll wait here in the ether
And send the rain, send the rain
Sing softly the eulogy
This requiem of mine
And when you're gone, I'll sing yours from the other side
You know

Sing softly the eulogy
This requiem of mine
And when you're gone, I'll sing yours from the other side
6. Headed South (5:15)
What an anemic charade, a soulless display
We force upon ourselves and all of the world
Needless to say, this sterile clenched
Has left me with another shovel down in a hole

I'm digging in vain, I'm digging in vain
But when it boils down to a distraction nothing compares
All I wanted was a haven away
But I've traded neuroticism in for despair.

Tunneling further down
Descending
And just in case there's any doubt, I'll say it now...

Fuck the world, I'm headed underground
Don't you wait, cause I'm already headed south (and I said)
I'm headed underground
Don't mind me, I'll just be making my way down

I'm living miles away from the sordid parade
A welcome sanctuary under the world
Suffice it to say, the cynic in me
Has left me with a shovel down in this hole

Digging in vain, I'm digging in vain
But when it boils down to a distraction, nothing compares.
All I wanted was a haven away
But I've traded neuroticism in for despair.

Tunneling further down
Descending.
And just in case there's any doubt, I'll say it now...

Fuck the world, I'm headed underground
Don't you wait, cause I'm already headed south (and I said)
I'm headed underground.
Don't mind me, I'll just be making my way down.
7. Serpent Noose (4:07)
You know me
You know the truth
You're tying slowly
Your serpent noose

I feel the pangs on a bitter nerve surfacing
I can't deny that I'm stifling what I say

Son, you've found yourself so far from home
God won't even find you where you're going.

You know me
You know the truth
You're dying to show me
The serpent noose

I hear the words of a bitter verse echoing
Can't reconcile nor tolerate

Son, you've found yourself so far from home
God won't even find you where you're going
8. Ouroboros Rising (4:19)
I don't need a reason
I don't need to explain
I'm told that death's in season
I don't need to be saved

But you... you tried so fucking hard
Can't seem to cauterize your scars
And stop your pride from bleeding
Coiling, the Ouroboros rise
The vicious cycle of our lives eternally repeating

Somewhere between love and failure
There's a hole in the sky
You and I might not live forever
But our words never die

I don't need a reason
I don't need to explain
I know it's dyin' season
I don't need to be saved

But you... you fought so fucking hard
Rationalized your butchered heart
To keep the fire burning
Coiling, the Ouroboros rise
The vicious cycle of our lives eternally returning

Somewhere between love and sorrow
There's an ocean of lies
You and I may not see tomorrow
But our words never die

You... you tried so fucking hard.
Can't seem to cauterize your scars
And stop your pride from bleeding
Coiling, the Ouroboros rise
The vicious cycle of our lives eternally repeating

Somewhere between love and failure
There's a crow in the sky
You and I might not live forever
But our words never die
We never die
9. Skeleton Vanguard (4:19)
Was it something I said
That bruised or broke your fragile skin, my friend?
But how could I
Have known the dead would be so sensitive?

The cretin king has risen from the shallow dirt we buried him
To save us from bereavement for his warm beloved temperament

Come down, give up the stones you're casting at me
So sad, with every throw your bones heard cracking

For a skeleton, you've got a lot to say
It's such a shame that no one's listening
I think your skeletons, they've got a lot to say
Now what made you think it means shit to me?

Was it something I did
That summoned up the living dead again
To criticize
Is so remiss of walking skeletons

The cretin king has risen, built a monument to fools again
To save us from bereavement for his warm beloved temperament

Come down, give up the stones you casted at me
So sad, such a sad, sad song, with every throw your bones heard cracking

For a skeleton, you've got a lot to say
It's such a shame that no one's listening
I think your skeletons, they've got a lot to say
Now what made you think it means shit to me?

Why you insist on keeping one foot out of the grave, I'll never know
It's lonely in death, but just think of the breath that you'll save
It gets old

For a skeleton, you've got a lot to say
It's such a shame that no one's listening
I think your skeletons, they've got a lot to say
Now what made you think it means shit to me?
10. Pyre (4:00)
I am a son of hate, of pure hostility
No one is safe, no one is taking me alive
I was born in flames, in scathing disarray
And every path I take leads to the hell inside

It's all I've known
Breathing the fire inside of me
To burn this day alive
Smoldering in anxiety
And from this ash I rise

You're not too young to die, too old to feel alive
The throes of time could give a fuck what you believe

I was born in fire and with this hell inside
And every path I take leads through eternity

It's all I've known
Breathing the fire inside of me
To burn this day alive
Smoldering in anxiety
And from this ash I rise

And from this ash I rise
11. Black Vatican (3:16)
Preaching to the wicked, on the tenets of ire
A sermon of malevolence for the unwise
I feel a change swelling inside

A terror manifesting itself to the light
I can't stop and why would I try?
Becoming what I long denied

There isn't a safe way that I could ever tell you
And I won't remember this battery that befell you

The gold and black emerging through the white of the eye
Unretractable claws of the vile
I feel a change swelling inside

I'm girding for the purging of myself in the fire
Seeing red until I go blind
Becoming what I've long denied for all this time

There isn't a safe way I could ever tell you
And I won't remember this battery that befell you
And yet again I waken to an unfamiliar place
I'm dreading this is the day the blood on my hands came from your face

Don't stay, save your life
And leave me behind
Don't stay, save your life
And leave me behind

Sinking my teeth into you
Hurting within
And I wish it were untrue
But this is what I am

Don't stay, save your life
And leave me behind
Don't stay, you'd never survive
The changing inside of me
12. Burial at Sea (5:31)
I lived in shame eighty-seven days
I wore the scars of failure
Forsaken but this is my crusade
Is this the undertow of tragedy?
The question begs an answer
Death obsessed, I drive into the sea
And now I've found the titan that has haunted me
Casting out my brother and my enemy
Bury me under this spiteful sea
Take the life it took away from me
Bury me under this spiteful sea
Carry on, I will return

I'm bleeding out into the swollen waves
My struggle to defend this
Victory, for this is my crusade
Is this the undertow of tragedy?
The question begs an answer
Death obsessed, I drive into the sea
Now I've put down the titan that once haunted me
Dragging out my brother and my enemy
Bury me under this spiteful sea
Take the life it took away from me
Bury me under this spiteful sea
Carry on, I will return

Bury me under the spiteful sea
Take the life it took away from me

Bury me under the spiteful sea
Carry on I will return
