  • Bloody corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    Dying mother forced to reconcile
    A hellish landscape just to feed her child
    Our interest waning, we desensitize
    Abusive power now becomes enshrined

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl
    The joke in the end that no one will know
    We're dying for nothing at all
    The harder we fight, the faster we fall (Fall)
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl (Crawl)
    The joke in the end that no one will know (Know)
    We're dying for nothing at all

    Bloody corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    Shining skies will bring on death below
    A compromising choice now rings hollow
    Self-interest gaining, killing monetized
    A million lives to push the bottom line

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl
    The joke in the end that no one will know
    We're dying for nothing at all
    The harder we fight, the faster we fall (Fall)
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl (Crawl)
    The joke in the end that no one will know (Know)
    We're dying for nothing at all

    Bloody corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    My fear is teething
    Through salt and sweat
    The air decreasing
    Burns with regret

    My fear is teething
    Through salt and sweat
    The air decreasing
    Burns with regret

    Crumbled cities scattered far and wide
    The myth of mercy buried deep inside

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl
    The joke in the end that no one will know
    We're dying for nothing at all
    The harder we fight, the faster we fall (Fall)
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl (Crawl)
    The joke in the end that no one will know (Know)
    We're dying for nothing at all

    Bloody corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones
