The Common Man's Collapse Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Wounds (1:03)
2. Crawl Back (4:02)
i will be known and i will scream it
i will be known today
relayed into thoughts of tranquil society, as this is
our last nights rest
if these are all the wounds that we suffer, then we
are the lucky ones
if this is all the time we have then we must move
forward
i can't be your only savior
this will break
under the pressure of their eyes i can't feel guilt i
cant feel shit
do i need to repeat myself
you cant crawl back cant crawl towards the light
i am now numb
3. Mark the Lines (3:57)
lost in the woods of a dream
call it an american one but we couldn't be further from home
so we rode, in the search of a place to rest our bloodshot eyes
but everything has a price to pay, everything has a price to pay
in the face of a stranger there was no sympathy to be found
so we'll draw from the innocence
don't make me regret this
mark the lines, right now
mark the fucking lines
we have been double crossed
let the pain begin
mark the lines whats done is done, we have been double crossed
everything has a price to pay don't make me regret
this was never the way, still no answer
will you stand by me when i collapse
4. It's Not Safe to Swim Today (2:43)
I knew this would be hell, but this is not living
Push them down and exhale water
Push them down and exhale blood
Breathe
You wanted this
And if we can't even trust ourselves how can we trust
Anyone else
It's not safe to swim today, it's not safe
I don't think I can be saved
This shallow water is my grave
5. Entry Level Exit Wounds (2:51)
When all their backs have turned, the worst is now much worse.
The act of being weeded out, no one to turn to.
You must fight on. Spill blood. This is now a fight.
You must fight on. Spill blood. This is now a fight to the end.
Leave no one alive. No excuses. They gave this a start, and we are giving it an end.
Bring forth your tortured. Bring forth you and I.
No remorse.
In our hearts and our minds.
These are all things set aside. x2
In our hearts and our minds, there is a poison that weakens their veins. No trust.
When all hope is lost, we will stand. Heads held high.
All things set aside. x2
They are the poison.
6. Pillars (2:09)
7. We Bow In It's Aura (3:47)
Triumphant beyond it's glory
Like a towering prize, they stand proud
From their hands, a demonic entity, as it comes to life
The electric playground breathes irradiant light
Muses the eyes of the faithful with a single touch
Cauterization envelops your soul as all joy drains from your body
Knees collapsing, we bow in its aura
In the crowd, a head gives the word
With a blue glow, the playground comes to life
Unveiling the secret in us all
Knees collapsing, we bow in its aura
8. All Eyes Look Ahead (2:30)
Chariots ride above fiery craters
uncertain a mist appears ahead
solvent and simple the figure approaches
stench of the dead stings my nostrils, the sulky
figure whispers to me
ultimate sacrifice or be condemned
I raise to my knees cutting his work in two
life and death so simply put
i wrap my hands around his cold shape, i wrap my
fucking hands
screaming till my lungs bleed i clench
screaming till my lungs bleed i end this
9. Sever the Voices (5:05)
We all know what lies behind the walls of deceit. These are the thoughts that keep him awake.
He contemplates his fate. He has to decide what it is he truely wants. An hour of pleasure, or two ruined lives? He has to decide.
He cant sever the voices, from his mind.
The Time......is now.
What is his choice, not what is his fate. To destroy all that is beautiful in not only his life, but hers too?
Seperate the time and place, he has come to the end. He holds onto false ideas of what makes a man. He thinks no more about the love of another, he chooses to only satisfy himself. Selfishness is not the word. He has chosen, but he knows this is wrong.
He inserts........death for lust. She grieves. He knows better but chooses his path and now he must live with this.
She walks in, face like death. She puts her hands around his weak and sweaty neck. He's turned cold blue now.
There is blood and there's tears, for this occassion. She can't sever the voices from her mind. They held each other down
10. It's Torn Away (5:01)
This is the last time i will struggle
the eyes of a million follow each step i take walking further into hell
the weak and willing wither under the weight of their own restraint
we hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be
every motion creates a canyon left empty
slowly the path begins to crumble and split
destruction lurks waiting to fill the void
while the other motions grief and iridescent light
a sense of knowing and divide, this is a choice in which we all relate
this is a choice make up your mind
following step by step in each of our lives
eyes always following and watching speaking tongues unknown
following step by step i go
it's torn away when i try to hold on
i grab the end of my senses, dragging them to reality
and as i see who i am now this is the path to being free
This is the last time i will struggle
the eyes of a million follow each step i take walking further into hell
the weak and willing wither under the weight
we hold an ideal of the way it's supposed to be
seemingly perfect like a grid composed of dots
ollowing step by step in each of our lives
eyes always following and watching speaking tongues unknown
following step by step i go
