Sever

Album: We As Human (2013)
  • Sun down its time to feed it
    Your demons come to life
    You try but cant defeat them
    Its over say goodnight
    I see you shiver
    Were running out of time
    Its now or never
    I'm reaching for the knife

    And I see a new day rising
    As we divide

    Separate my soul
    Watch as you expose
    All this violence
    Out of control
    Cancer in my bones
    You wont let me go
    So its you I sever

    Wake up the moon is rising
    You feel the other side
    Tonight you face the dying
    Theirs nowhere left to hide
    The taste so bitter
    But it will wash away
    I will deliver
    The sickness to the grave

    And I see a new day rising
    As we divide

    Separate my soul
    Watch as you expose
    All this violence
    Out of control
    Cancer in my bones
    You wont let me go
    So its you I sever

    I count the times
    Ive been betrayed
    My flesh and soul
    Are still at war

    I shed the skin
    Under me
    I feel the life
    Set me free

    And I see a new day rising
    As we divide

    Separate my soul
    Watch as you expose
    All this violence
    Out of control
    Cancer in my bones
    You wont let me go
    So its you I sever Writer/s: JUSTIN CORDLE, MARK HOLMAN
