lyrics

sever the nexus
the core is dead
the core is

dead men tell no tales
stand straight when all else fails?
bridges burn, no return
bars, cuffs, chains
all will come undone the same

a time to choose
a time to save
tracing footsteps heading to the grave

bitter celebration of decay
i’ll drink my cup and walk the line today

turn loose all the demons
a point-blank revenge

lines bend, deformed
shapes move at will
structures take form
time stands still
caryatids
knee-bend and twist
gargoyles awake
to open up the gates

speak thy name, oh father
speak thy truth
sell me off so that my wounds would soothe

bitter celebration of decay
i’ll drink my cup and walk the line today

lost in a kaleidoscope of
timeless retrospectives again
spinning, overwhelming, tornado
bloody halo

the break of the day
the shadow betrays
backstabbing heroes
your time in not near
your time is now

dead end sighting - give up fighting
die hard rebel, lonely devil

let pain settle, floor the pedal
one decision: straight collision now
walls come tumbling down

…and so this is the end
the junkie met the sober
sick of talking to myself
this old monologue is over

…and so this is the end
walk straight across the border
i’m done with yesterdays
this old monologue is over

…and so this is the end
redemption’s for the seeker
no fabric to hide my scars
the spirit’s weak
the flesh is weaker

…and so this is the end
i’ve crossed beyond this portal
one final testament:
my bones to sea
my soul to orders that

i will never be
i’ll never share their apathy

for a time to choose
a time to save
heavy footsteps trading off the grave

bitter celebration of decay
i drank my cup and walked the other way

still i’m standing unbowed
