we've made heroes out of men who should die
conflagration is burning, gweyer is churning
violators of the contract of life through malice intent or reckless neglect
yet this is who we deify
it feeds our belief as it sucks us beneath
so bring on all this strife
and once we are below there's nowhere left to go
what if when
when we get there
there's no boat man
and no light by which to see,
see where we came,
came to this place,
the place that has become our reality, this is all there is,
and all there is now is time enough to think,
think of wrongs done and rights undone,
and now it all begins to set in,
this is all there is/ this is it
this is all i can do to find a way to to make it through this world if shit.
this is the culture we brought,
a sick society reflecting what it sees,
screaming with the pitchfork in hand, mob state of mind wins every time, but it's all so overwrought
scripted moves we follow the cues
so bring on all the strife
there is nowhere to go
when you're down below
in the the ground
we all go in the ground
all the evil on top lives
enter the crucified
sanctimonious fucks out lifeblood they suck
devourer of the soul
pain from the teeth of mythical beasts
united and vilified
shield our face while they exterminate
seen through the stomata hole
there's nowhere to go our feet are nailed to the floor
what if when
when we get there
there's no boat man
and no light by which to see,
see where we came,
came to this place,
the place that has become our reality, this is all there is,
and all there is now is time enough to think,
think of wrongs done and rights undone,
and now it all begins to set in,
this is all there is/ this is it
this is all i can do to find a way to to make it through this world if shit.
we live with broken morals
we rest of fractured laurels
we don't believe anything
to hell with the pain it bring
we're raised by the ties that bind
proper up by the hands of time
if nothing we see is real
why is pain all i feel
"hold on for one more day",
"cling to what you need to live."
"fix your wings and other cliches"
like, what advantage would that vantage give?
we've drained the moral well
a shout goes up as they yell
"there's no heaven and there's no hell"
