Straws Pulled at Random Lyrics

7. Straws Pulled at Random (5:16)
Track rating :  100 / 100       Votes :  1       [ ]
What solace lies in the arms of fate
- The ill embrace of uncertainty
When did I leave this in other hands
- To be pulled down at chance

Ripped away by destiny-claws
Am I another of fate's possessions
Dwelling the lie of freedom
Just another straw pulled at random

Reclaimed by deceiving time
A silent judgment I can not overrule

Drawn back into the origin-vortex
Uprooted and ground to dust
Retracted into anti-existence
A magnet repelled by life's polarity

Denied the self control of fate we flow suspended in semi-life
Until the ever imminent day when oblivion claims our breath

Nowhere indefinitely. Not dead, not alive
Existence-patterns ripped of symmetry. As will and fate divide

Have I appeased the gods of fate
Am I allowed another day
Must I die to escape
The scanning eyes of death
