Overlord

Album: VII: Sturm und Drang (2015)
  • You never proved me anything but right
    You're all surprises, consistency, defied
    An overwhelming sense of predictability
    I don't say we slide into mediocrity

    (Another day spent) buried in the shadow of your doubt
    (Always the same) but still you refuse to figure out

    You will destroy you
    Distorted, tore yourself in two
    Your will absorbed you
    You can't ignore you anymore

    A new time of declaration of distress
    Strife, misery, and the pursuit of unhappiness
    Endless complaining, no accountability
    No reek of privilege and weightless tragedy

    (Another day) spent buried in the shadow of your doubt
    (Always the same) but still you refuse to figure out

    You will destroy you
    Distorted, tore yourself in two
    Your will absorbed you
    You can't ignore you anymore

    Cry over the silken pillow
    Clipped wings beneath a crooked halo
    A perfect child who never looks at the mirror
    Right in your face, but not any clearer

    A problem hidden in plain view
    Is staring right back at
    You

    All the world's a stage
    But you are the only player
    A black hole in the center of the universe, a dark cloud of despair

    Caught in an endless rut
    A crisis without solution
    Someone should stitch your mouth shut
    And solve your fucking problem

    Strife
    Another day in misery
    Always the same
    Strife
    Another day in misery
    Always the same

    You will destroy you
    Distorted, tore yourself in two
    Your will absorbed you
    You can't ignore you anymore
