1. A Steady Decline (4:00)
The secret's out this is the last time
Cast overboard, dragged out to sea
All premonitions drowned today in the murky waters flowing from wounds
But we emerged soaked in grace, dripping with the truth
You've fired upon a target so clear
but we've shattered our own glass hearts
We've fought with sweat and blood, this life is all we have
Today has taken a bloody toll, but the nightfall will claim your life
Claim your life tonight
Her majesty will swallow you, she'll devour you
And now we stand at this eulogy dripping with the truth
You fired upon a target and we fired back
We fired back on your stronghold
We devastated all defenses
Regret consumes you
Regret becomes us all
2. Fingers Like Daggers (3:23)
fingers are like daggers
Tearing me apart, with each caressing stroke
My scars unravel cruel history
Our love was stab wounds and lusty kisses
In your eyes I see wasted tears for wasted years
and heartache, heartfelt for granted
You left me with nothing but the desire to overcome
This gaping wound from where you stole my vital organ
But keep it with you, a trophy for yourself
Still you linger for another gaze
Die away from me
I won't stand by while you plague the air with your lies and deception
My shirt stained crimson, from long nights of anguish
These scars are forever, but this won't be eternity
You wash away guilt in the oceans of my tears
I will drown you
3. Redeeming the Wretched (3:18)
When the bite of the steel catches your face
give it all your flesh to strip away
Revealing all the scars you hide inside
Your inner quarrels, your struggle to survive
A crimson hand to choke your throat
I'll stop your breath as long as it takes
To end this torture, clearing a forest of oppression
Can you taste the soil as it fills your lungs?
To extinguish the fire, the fire burning in your eyes
You cannot stop the scorching. We'll lay you down on your eternal bed
The soothing touch of a wrathful hand
You leave the sky, encased in the earth
Can you feel the roots as they seep inside your heart?
A crimson hand to do the will of god
We'll wipe you out to clear the land for angels
With the turning of the tide
