Erase This

Album: VII: Sturm und Drang (2015)
  • Justify, a means to an ending only just the beginning
    To legitimize the conflict that's rendering the interaction so useless
    Futility defined, watching you wait for the stars to align
    So clueless, so simple it should be a crime
    And I can't bring myself to save you this time

    Keep me in your sights, possessed by the spite, woeful irrelevance
    So quick to ignite, impulse to indict, defense for incompetence
    For what it's worth, it was over before it began
    Blind in your search, no one to guide your hand
    For what it's worth, you crossed a line in the sand
    Cut off, locked out, as it fell right through your hands

    Victimize, cast off, forgotten daughter, play the martyr
    So they sympathize with your condition and your position
    It's strategic how your misfortune became so fortunate
    Oh, it must be torture keeping up with it
    Consider me disengaged and find a better character for your stage
    Only ever more, still keeping the score, is there enough for you?
    Keep one thing for sure, stay pure saboteur, it's simply what you do
    For what it's worth, it was over before it began
    Blind in your search, no one to guide your hand
    For what it's worth, you crossed a line in the sand
    Cut off, locked out, as it fell right through your hands

    Erase this, replace this with something to have hope in
    Sever all ties that bind, the circle will be broken

    Keep me in your sights, possessed by spite, woeful irrelevance
    So quick to ignite, impulse to indict, defense for incompetence
    For what it's worth, it was over before it began
    Blind in your search, no one to guide your hand
    For what it's worth, you crossed a line in the sand
    Cut off, locked out, as it fell right through your hands Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
