I looked across the waters, ash blood blacked Roots poisoned and rotted, our earth lay fallow Eyes hollow and burning, mind broken, breath shallow Oceans of sorrow, regrets spill over and over again Regrets spill over and over again Slow collapse, building mounds like tombs Countless gray soldiers, tumbling from the scaffolds Their blood soaked eyes, like stained glass Searing effigies of our hope, stand mocking our pain And I see you screaming, I see you, but I can’t hear a thing Searing effigies of our hope mock our suffering My pain is a stone, growing slow, like a cancer Bound in chains, of rage, red hot with fear We harvest our sins, fangs out but broken Our chapter is ending, unresolved, slamming shut Crying molten tears, we design our graves Bone and sinew stretch, and crack as we fall Whispers crackle with lies, we envy the dead No fear ward can save us, or the slaves we created And I bury my siblings with the ashes of my children Our temples alive seeking blood for their alters Rage is our god, wrath our mother, fire our father And I see you screaming, I see you, but I can’t hear a thing My pain is a stone, growing slow, like a cancer Rage is our god No fear ward can save us, or the slaves we created

And you fall, fall into a tower of shadows We pray to wolves as our flock flee the fires Our forced calloused hands, whip broken backs It hurts me to find you, kneeling before the veil You fall into nothing, still just falling away, falling away Your gods, they’re not watching, their fables, they’re all dead Yet we still keep building with blood on our hands Stones stacked like tombs, monuments like withered eyes Pillars of smoke, columns of fire I stood there watching, lambs led to the slaughter

Wander the planes, absent minded, burning to believe, nothing there Sky is seeping it's blood onto me, cover my skull, head forward Nervous twitch keeping me alive, making me run Agony the antidote of reason, shed my skin, tear my rotting carcass Flowers in fields replaced with metal scraps, walk upon them in remembrance Of how they once felt on the freshly sliced flesh. Force the shards into your eyes Scolding unconscious, behold wrath Bones turning stone, turning clay, the chapter ends Twist in the winds, ripping the seams, scatter No flag left standing, no temple host to guide the lost Shallow graves break the land, where seeds find purchase feeding on each other, all souls broke and empty Reclaimed the cycle, the land cries out Wander the planes, absent minded, burning to believe, nothing there Sky is seeping it's blood onto me, cover my skull, head forward Nervous twitch keeping me alive See the world for all the lack of glory. See the beauty in the emptiness, rotting catacombs, ripe stench-filled walkways This is the scope of our ruin and the culling of harvest Bone riddled sewage clawing your knees, dragging and pulling Deeper you fall under, your lungs fill with ashes Sinking one by one, cold and alone, red ash turned to stone Grey skies hold heavy the cries This is the scope of our ruin and the culling of harvest Bone riddled sewage clawing your knees, dragging and pulling Deeper you fall under, your lungs fill with ashes A smoldering cancer devouring the earth beyond sight Dark coal speck imbedded in your soul shatters to branches Black spine branches crackle out like teeth with no mouth Light doused by smoke spewing wings dripping with venom Behold the deluge, angry shatters the land underfoot
