Sewn Shut Eyes Lyrics

10. Sewn Shut Eyes (4:15)
Track rating :  95 / 100      Votes :  1     
Hate... Hate is a lesson we know
Alone on its own it will die
It eats what it needs to survive
-- It wants to survive
Every night you look deep in your soul
Burn the fields where the the hatred is grown

Hate... Hate always seething to find
Some way to get to your brain
Infesting what's pure in the mind
-- Hatred divine
Look around you is anyone pure
Free of hatred inside this cold world

Pre-conceived truth from lies
Blind to see thru sewn shut eyes

Hate breeds hate

Hate... always eager to rise
Above all to gain full control
Infesting what's pure in the mind
-- Evil entwined
Even now that the seeds have been sewn
Burn the fields where the hatred still grows

Hate breeds hate

How many have to die before we realize hate undermines?

Hate... Hate always eager to find
Some way to tear out your soul
Surviving the passage of time
-- Dirty white lies
Back in time as our history shows
Endless cycless of hatred still flow

Pre-conceived heartless lies
Blind to see thru sewn shut eyes

Is there still hope for us now?
I said: "Is there still hope for us now?"
-- No!
