Vivid 11:13
You say More than you should I turn away When I hear the truth We came So far Now I forget What it’s like to be warm Decay, it’s natural For a life lived so happily Loss and misery It’s only gravity Do your time Lose your crown Soul fire Burn the whole place down Is the world burning down Sure as it spins around Has the world come undone Sure as the sun Has there ever been a time Without war, without crime Or is the thorn the face of life And the rose its underside Let me down Look up at yourself Save me Is there a god above? Why does he play with us? When push comes to shove, Who’ll be first to bust? Is there love? Or is that also a lie? You soar Right over my head Let me down
Soothsayer 06:47
Comedown 12:21
Failed, I writhe Hell, I tried Close your eyes Force a smile What you say Comes your way Kneel and pray Claim your fate Pain mandatory No pain, no glory Pain is protein Suffering is sweet It’s getting real Please plug me in This was not the deal She’s done me in I’m falling out Please hold me in Faced with the void Blood growing thin Believe What you’re told The more you see The less you know Heed words of worth Touch of truth tends to hurt Pain is protein Suffering is sweet You’ve bit the dirt before Better learn to love the floor Why pick the pieces up If the puzzle is enough Have you heard the news We are bound to lose That’s the fucking point You’re supposed to lose a tooth or two Abyssus Abyssum Invocat Vindico Nothing seems to get me high I’m stuck in low tide So at home on the ground Did it for the comedown
