Vigil

Album: As The Palaces Burn (2003)
  • Our father thy will be done

    I have denied this life its worth
    I will not be the victim
    Sickness to you my master
    Here's to getting worse
    Hope it kills you faster

    Show me how it hurts to rot from the inside out
    This vigil burns until the day our fires overtake you
    Our father we forsake you

    Blessed be his name
    Nothing now the same

    Ask me why I hate
    Why I've prayed to see the nation that I loved disintegrate
    And gladly give my life
    That revolution regenerates

    In honor of the strife of those who've died
    In generations before your blood stained glory
    I reject you
    I deny you
    I defy you to continue

    I defy you to continue

    In honor of the strife of those who've died
    In generations before your blood stained glory
    I reject you
    I deny you
    I defy you to continue

    Smite the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered Writer/s: David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell, Chris Adler
