MADE

There’s a root in a mystery
Greater than the sins of Sodom
To remove all our history
And erasing all things forgotten
And what we’re made of
Just what we’re made of

We try to envision love, but we aren’t able
Rejecting the truth that’s in our mind, returning to fables
We heard from within an inner voice and thought it an angel
Inventing a god in our form in our own minds

To the eye it’s a blistering
Peering into the world surrounding
Taking in all there is to see
With even what is clear confounding
Just what we’re made of
Just we’re made of

We try to envision love, but we aren’t able
Rejecting the truth that’s in our mind, returning to fables
We heard from within an inner voice and thought it an angel
Inventing a god in our form and something like unto ourselves
And not the one who made us
We turned away from the one who made
We turned away

We try to envision love, but we aren’t able
Rejecting the truth that’s in our minds, returning to fables
We heard from within an inner voice and thought it an angel
Inventing a god in our form and something like unto ourselves
And not the one who made us
Not the one who made us
Not the one who made us
Not the one who made us

 

DEAD LETTERS

And they plan in riddles
And they speak in lies
And they hide in secret

From sinking ships they lick their lips and bite the hand that that feeds 'em
Then turn their eyes and skip in time and hold the hand that beats 'em
To them it is all the same
To them it is just a game to be won for the prize of nothing
So their masters' sins, through Cheshire grins
Disappear with a wink between 'em

Dead letters we've sent along
In vain, thinking they'll hear our call
These dead letters will not arrive at all

They'll let it rot in ruin
Let it lie in dust
Let it rust in rubble
They'll leave us crushed and crippled
Watch us rend in two
Leave us split and splintered
And never say as they do

With battered fools as useful tools they destroy the ones who bore them
The brash and bold are bought and sold by the ones who alone implore them
To them it is all the same
For them it is just a game to be won at the cost of many
Who'd trade their souls for little bowls filled with swill and set before them

These dead letters we've sent along
In vain, thinking they'll hear our call
These dead letters will not arrive at all

They'll let it rot in ruin
Let it lie in dust
Let it rust in rubble
They'll leave us crushed and crippled
Watch us rend in two
Leave us split and splintered
And never say as they do

And they plan in riddles
And they speak in lies
And they hide in secret

These dead letters we've sent along in vain
In vain, thinking they'll hear our call
These dead letters will not arrive at all

No lesson is learned
And so it returns
To repeat all that came before us
And the fleeting dreams of the liars' schemes reappear
And promise to restore us

These dead letters we've sent along
They'll never, ever hear our call
These dead letters will not arrive at all

 

ONE WORLD

The worst-laid plans of rats and men
Will always go astray
They come crashing down 'neath their own weight
To crush their feet of clay
In bold defiance, with blinding lust to reign
This dark alliance lays brick upon brick in vain

Bring peace through war
Just as before
To feed the beast they bow before
Through vanity's insanity
They'll drag us all to ruin...
When there's one world
Then they've won this world

The best intent of deceitful men
Will only lead astray
They fit the weak with blinders bleak
Led through the slaughter gate
In bold defiance, with blinding lust to reign
This dark alliance lays brick upon brick in vain

Bring peace through war
Just as before
To feed the beast they bow before
Through vanity's insanity
They'll drag us all to ruin...
When there's one world
Then they've won this world

Bring peace through war
Just as before
To feed the beast they bow before
Through vanity's insanity
They'll drag us all to ruin...
When there's one world
Then they've won this world
When there's one world
They've won this world
When there's one world
Then they've won this world
One world
One world

 

ORDINARY

Memories of shocking things and outragings and all they'd bring
They faded away, unwelcoming
It's all so very ordinary now

I recall the shocking things, the outragings and all they'd bring
We look away, not noticing
It's all so very ordinary now
We could hear the squall, appalled, the call against just the thought of it all
It's like we're trained, with ice within our veins, to never show the pain or to know...
Let it out, let it out
Go, get it out, get it out

I recall the hurting screams, the outreachings for what we'd seen
We pull away, so uncaring
It's all so very ordinary now
Barely touched, our eyes are shut, our hearts are cut, left pounded to bits
It's like we're filled with ice that's chilled our will to ever feel again or to know...
Let it out, let it out
Go, get it out, get it out

Memories of shocking things and outcryings at all we'd seen
All blurred dreams and strange musings
It's all so very ordinary now
We could hear the squall, appalled, the call against just the thought of it all
It's like we're trained, with ice within our veins, to never show the pain or know...
Let it out, let it out
Go, get it out, get it out
Oh, Let it out, let it out
Go, get it out, get it out

 

BLOOD IN THE WATER

They're carving a circle
All fins and teeth
Their eyes on the living
Sites set beneath
They swiftly attack
Pulling and tearing with
Sharp words of "concern"
From blue into black
The skin you are wearing
Removed with each turn

They smell blood in the water
There's death in the air

They're racing in circles
So high overhead
Slow dragging their shadows
Through fields of the dead
In tandem they dive
Slashing and pulling from
The sick and the weak
Barely alive
And dragging your carcass
You curse through your teeth

They smell blood in the water
There's death in the air

Hands bitten
Hard written
They listen for signs
Not hidden
Greed-smitten
Eyes quicken
To see the end

Buried before you are dead
Broken by those you have fed
Ashamed of the ones you have bred
Who bathe the wealth you have bled

They swiftly attack
Pulling and tearing with
Sharp words of "concern"
From blue into black
The skin you are wearing
Removed with each turn

Blood in, blood in...
Death in the air...
Death in, death in the air...

There's blood in the water
There's death in the air

Hands bitten
Hard written
They listen for signs
Not hidden
Greed-smitten
Eyes quicken
To see the end

Buried before you are dead
Broken by those you have fed
Ashamed of the ones you have bred
Who bathe the wealth you have bled
