Echoes Effigies Lyrics

3. Echoes Effigies (6:12)
Silent souls on walls engraved
A siren's woe, reminding me
With every passing hour to wait
A sorrow I will recreate

The fading eyes, the pallid skin
A fallow heart that died within
The fading line, the pain enshrined
The human heart a cruel design

Tell me how it came to be
That I am here - a hell between
Monument and effigy
A temple of what I believed
Taking all I had from me

(I) I was awake
I was a vigilant watcher
An angel waiting for the call

(I) I was ashamed
A spirit dead in the water
A shadow cast upon the wall

(Two) The enemy
Another living inside me
Redemption soaked in blood revenge

(Now) I lay the guilt
For all the bodies around me
At the feet of my own effigy

Daylight drowns in disbelief
Taking all I had from me
Stain the temple, painted lies
Ignorance the alibi
Callous eyes will watch them die

(Lost) A soul adrift
Ideological failure
Slaughter the dehumanized

(Fade) Into abyss
Into a valley of ashes
A bleeding conscience euthanized

(Fate) Or consequence
Was I the pawn or the preacher
The demon or the demonized

(Now) I know the truth
A criminal not a savior
A man I do not recognize

Daylight drowning disbelief
Something so unknown to me
Stain the temple, burn the shrine
Darkness bleeds to save these eyes
Facing light from wounded sky

chorus:
Remembering who I am
Like an echo surrounding me
I'm trembling at what I have become
The faces are staring back at me

Another horizon comes
Like an echo surrounding me
Breaking through all I have become
Facing the light where darkness bleeds

You can never go back
You cannot exonerate yourself
You can never go back
Absolution does not change your guilt
