about

There is nothing more valuable than life.

lyrics

Take your life back,
Take your life back from,
Take your life back,
Take your life back from the

Fakes.
False arbiters.
Pulse shift marks an early grave.
Speak the truth, unnerved.
We dance ‘tween the scissors’ blades.
Rise above the pull.
Self-seeking, an endless search.
Breach the upheaval.
Now rise and feel your worth.

Take your life back,
Take your life back from,
Take your life back,
Take your life back from the fakes.

Maybe we should find our pride and self-worth.
Quiet hearts reaching out in the dark at night.
Why can’t we just find our pride and self-worth?
I can’t bear to stand the thought of us giving up.

We’re measured in numbers,
As if they could count us.
When’s the last day you’ll lie beneath the sun?
Walk on, be free.
When it comes to justice, there’s none.

I can’t stand it now,
They want us bound in order.
Let me make it clear.
Built up to be brought down.
I can’t stand it now,
Shame on us the sons and daughters.
Let me make it clear,
Hold your tongue or it comes out.

Maybe we should find our pride and self-worth.
Quiet hearts reaching out in the dark at night.
Why can’t we just find our pride and self-worth?
I can’t bear to stand the thought of us giving up.

God forgive me, for my transgressions.
My flaws.

I long to see absolution.
Wrath brought to his knees by a word.
The dead gather here to remind me,
We won’t cannot be deterred.

I’ve witnessed a perfect
Marriage of tendons and teeth while you’ve slept.
I saw the blood rush from the mouths of creatures,
So crimson I shook.
I’ve witnessed the lives of
Loved ones and strangers just taken from them and
I stand on the edge of
Calamity, upstart, revival, and hope.
