lyrics

Our greatest foe is
Hidden in plain sight
We turned our eyes to the sky
As we fight
But as we turned away
From each other
Our backs were vulnerable
To the predators within us

And so begins the tale of emotional cannibalism

Threads that bind the enervated
Become undone
By the passion
Of the voracious

Our structure inherently flawed
When a pillar
Becomes an individual
The tower of flesh collapses
A failure of compassion


We blame demons and gods
But the failures are all our own
The components clash
Hidden by weakness
Our nature is based on
Survival of the fittest
Trampling our own brethren

And the pain took its toll as it struck
And desire paved our road full of loss

A system built on
A flawed machine
That seeks its self destruction
Can not succeed

Rip it out, break it down

Into the depths of the
Fragile human psyche
We designed our process
And shook hands
But hands mean nothing
When severed and bleeding

And the pain took its toll as it struck
And desire paved our road full of loss

Nightmares are but a product
Of the dreamer's own propensities
The yearning for dominance
At the expense of consistency

How are we different
From the ancient evil
That tried to enslave us
With control?
