Seduction of Decay Lyrics
[Scientist II:]
It ain't the far cry that it seemed
In just a wink we'd come for you
You may not feel it
We are the light, the scorching heat
We are the untold chosen few
And now we've come for you

We'll fit you like a velvet glove
that's gonna choke their minds
Affiliate yourself with what you can't defy
Some below and few above
We're gonna numb their minds

[Scientist II:]
Riot on the edge
[Aaron:]
On the brink of insanity
[Scientist II:]
Riot on the edge

You'll hear me screaming your name
I am the angel of decay to seize you
There'll be no thoughts to maintain
I'm the seduction of decay

[Aaron:]
I hear their tales reverberate
From shrouds of myth that only time would weave
Bred in a den of lunacy
Who can we trust? Who's next in line?
The sacred drive to rationalize
Commit ourselves another day
to the lesser crime

[Scientist II:]
Choke on your own pace with candour

[Aaron:]
So pleasant in the quiet
Vicegerents of the tide

[Scientist II:]
Riot on the edge
[Aaron:]
On the brink of insanity
[Scientist II:]
Riot on the edge

You'll hear me screaming your name
I am the angel of decay to seize you
There'll be no thoughts to maintain
I'm the seduction of decay

Time contaminating space
to reinfect and agonize anything around
We are metabolite of dreams
the chosen ones to sacrifice
the wasteland-bound

Oh, Euphoria is looming in the darkness
Coincidence of opposites we are
Once beautiful intentions

[Scientist II:]
Oh, we'll drag you over
Oh, it's gonna drag you over

[Aaron:]
Oh, from the start we run away
And don't seem to care what for
Forever feels just like a blink after passing by
Just fools don't know the prime's another
state of decay

[Scientist II:]
Riot on the edge
[Aaron:]
On the brink of insanity
[Scientist II:]
Riot on the edge

You'll hear me screaming your name
I am the angel of decay to seize you
There'll be no thoughts to maintain
I'm the seduction of decay
