The Revanchist

Album: The Sin and the Sentence (2017)
  • I've been waiting here on the outside
    I've been watching you from afar

    The color of your fear
    Confusion deep inside
    Resentment boils over
    In me, you can confide

    You say you've lost your world
    You say you've lost your faith
    I'll be the shelter in the dark
    Clothe you in my hate

    Profiteers and preachers
    Sycophants and leachers

    The Revanchist - his thoughts become mine
    How deep they become intertwined
    He said
    Submit for salvation
    Submit for salvation
    The age old lie

    Submit for salvation

    I've been calling you from the twilight
    I've been pushing you to the edge

    The way you say my name
    The poison on your tongue
    The lies they tell - pay no mind
    I am the only one

    You never turned your back
    You didn't need to see
    'Cause even in the dead of night
    You found your way to me

    Profiteers and preachers
    Sycophants and leachers

    The Revanchist - his thoughts become mine
    How deep they become intertwined
    He said
    Submit for salvation
    Submit for salvation
    The age old lie

    Submit for salvation

    I've been waiting here on the outside
    I've been watching you from afar

    The color of your fear
    Confusion deep inside
    Resentment boils over
    In me, you can confide

    You say you've lost your world
    You say you've lost your faith
    I'll be the shelter in the dark
    Clothe you in my hate

    Profiteers and preachers
    Sycophants and leachers

    The Revanchist - his thoughts become mine
    How deep they become intertwined
    He said
    Submit for salvation
    Submit for salvation
    The age old lie

    He said
    Submit for salvation
    Submit for salvation
    The age old lie

    Submit for salvation
