lyrics

On its eldritch course lumbers the night
A shroud of silence its disease
Glowing ashes scatter overland
The embers of deep pain and burning misery

Hearts are blackened by the sorrow of tomorrows nevermore
Phoenix talons clutching hope’s remains
Forth from the ash of the killing floor

Giving up, giving over control
The colors of the world have changed
Brackish hues of remorse and madness
Breathe deep the lies in this pool of shame

Find your voice
Rip it out
Write it down
Burn it up
Shout it away and hold on
Cut through the hooks of despair
Raise your head, split the night and face the cold dawn

Bleeding out on the barbs of vengeance
Taste the poison on bruised lips
Sweating through tormented sleep
Reject the healing curse of life’s broken kiss

Giving up, giving over control
Another twist of the jagged blade
Beaten down as you shoulder the guilt
And take your part in the grim charade
