  • We will trample on our children 'til this world is flooded red
    No boundary for depravity, no silence for the dead
    Now weep for the life that you've lead
    We will follow vacant voices into a shallow grave
    Reiterate the verses of some self consuming slave
    Now pay for the hell that you praise

    Every curse, lie, violation of our lives
    Every careless shallow breath, corruption of our minds
    All the blood and the shame, defamation of name
    The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless, crucifix
    Embodied on a blood soaked, crucifix, crucifix

    The sacrament is broken, and all I see is red
    The idols of humanity they tower overhead
    Now weep for the life that you've lead
    The gates have severed open, setting death upon this place
    Compelling us to hope in a revolting human race
    Now pay for the hell that you praise

    Every curse, lie, violation of our lives
    Every careless shallow breath, corruption of our minds
    All the blood and the shame, defamation of name
    The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless, crucifix
    Embodied on a blood soaked, crucifix, crucifix

    My eyes have seen

    Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this crooked place
    It seems these fools will never learn
    I guess it's easy to see the world the way I do
    The emptiness is a promise, the sin is just the proof

    Embodied on a thankless, crucifix, crucifix

    My eyes have seen Writer/s: Ryan Clark
