lyrics

Own this autobiography of all staggering footsteps
And oh how deafening is the hoax, of caring for anything.

Take control of all, all tyrannical, overbearing.
No letting go, all these shortsights, undercutting.
Smiles don’t you know cut so sharply when out of context?
Making debtors of all encountered.

(you know?) They’re all killers, thieves, deceivers.
(follow?) All the other non-believers.
(so low) To feed the needs of bottom feeder.
(bow out) Sinking ships to save your brothers.

Steal our modest commodities and do you
Need them so much more than us?
Sell hell, all our souls and so much more to
Save yourself…oh so despicable.

See the last reaction, any change or adaption?
Making instigations, little fingers, big intentions.
We’ve lost the mission, but made sure to pick their pockets.
Eager enemies, knives in hand say…

What’s this? We’ve caught up to your useless antics
With lower motives than we’ve known or even ever spoken.
Please forfeit this, you attempts to make a profit
And poisoned again.


(you know?) They’re all killers, thieves, deceivers.
(follow?) We’re the only true believers.
(solo) To feed the needs of bottom feeders.
(oh no) Alter egos taking over.

And count out all this reasoning with overshadowing
And oh how deafening the truth is, can you hear it?

What’s this? We’ve caught up to your useless antics
With lower motives than we’ve known or even ever spoken.
Please forfeit this, you attempts to make a profit
And poisoned again.
