Flesh and Fury Lyrics

7. Flesh and Fury (4:11)
There you are in jet white allegiance,
Sending words of wishful thinking through the air,
There you stand on the thin ice of believing,
Squared for battle, you hear the trumpets call,

Faith take hold, cold smile disguises,
Kneel and breed deception,
Then the world, looking through its fingers,
Finds there's just not much to see,

In our power, glory to us one and all,
Feel no love in freedom,
Don't cry, it's only thunder in your head,
Driving flesh and fury,

There you are in a flash of frozen moments,
On tomorrow's edge and waiting at the gate,
There you stand killing all your words for love,
Whispered hooks in the mouth of fate,

Fall from grace, talk from the corners,
Raise your hands to heaven,
Then from the shadows, choice comes crawling out,
In silence, sister victory,

Can you see them come to rescure me,
Mother reaching out to compassion,
Can you see them standing on the other side,
The warning, God has come for you,

Here we are a circle of shadows,
Waiting in the wings,
Here we stand patiently watching,
The wheels set in motion,

Over-night sensation breaking,
Overkill religion,
Back from the alley, truth comes screaming out,
For mothers of mercy,

In our power, glory to one and all,
Feel no love in freedom,
Don't cry, it's only thunder in your head,
Driving flesh and fury.
