  • You are we

    Here lies our addiction
    The price is a truce
    To hide the afflicted right under our nose
    Tyrants deprivers of truth
    Take what you can
    We've got nothing to lose

    So come and get it
    We've got nothing to lose
    Yeah I fucking said it
    Deprivers of the truth

    To be honest they force this upon us
    Show us the path
    Paved with glass
    Sentiment at last
    The knife behind your back

    Our smoke will paint the sky
    Cover up the lights that guide us
    Celebrate decline
    We made our bed and I will lie to you
    That everything's alright
    We'll dam the river
    We'll dam the river and try to

    Hide from the water
    Pre-creation in the reign of sin
    If the land has been swallowed
    We'll learn how to swim
    Begging for our sorrow
    The tides are turning

    You want your countless wars
    We want to count less wars
    You want to point the blame
    At the heretics
    But you're the hypocrites
    It's only hate you preach
    And when we call for peace
    You call it anarchy
    I hope your god can save you
    As your devil leads the way
    Yeah

    We've got nothing to lose
    So come and get it
    We've got nothing to lose
    Yeah I fucking said it
    Deprivers of the truth

    It's like raking dead leaves in the wind
    It's like saints living life without sins
    It's like digging our graves in the sand
    It's like raking dead leaves in the wind

    Our smoke will paint the sky
    Cover up the lights that guide us
    Celebrate decline
    We made our bed and I will lie to you
    That everything's alright
    You are we
    You are we
