The Wake

Album: Found In Far Away Places (2015)
  • Destroy everything, cleanse
    Wipe away the filth
    Set fire to your waste
    Burn everything
    Back into dirt
    Burn everything

    Flood, drown the earth
    Flood, drown the earth
    It's what we deserve

    Rehash the poisons
    You breathe in the air
    Tear down what you say your father created
    Constructing buildings over buildings
    Conceal history like a shameful scar
    This world has lived for a million years with more to come
    It's only a matter of time until you choke on your indifference
    Struggling to breathe as the water fills your lungs
    Trying hard to scream as it rises into your throat

    The reckless, the careless
    Will reign until the oceans rise

    Flood, drown the earth
    Flood, drown the earth
    It's what we deserve
    It's what we deserve
    It's what we deserve
    It's what we deserve
    It's what we deserve

    This world has lived for a million years with more to come
    It's only a matter of time until you choke on your indifference
    Struggling to breathe as the water fills your lungs
    Trying hard to scream as it rises into your throat

    Wake up
    And save yourself
    The sea will reclaim
    What it worked to create
    Wake up
    Save yourself
    Pick up the pieces
    Ask for forgiveness Writer/s: DUSTIN CHAD DAVIDSON, JOHN BENJAMIN BRUBAKER, MATTHEW WILSON GREINER, RAMBLER BRENT GERALD, WILLLIAM JACOB LUHRS
