lyrics

Barren Canvas,
Barren Mother's Heart.
We're screaming for answers,
By silencing our art.

We paint all the same things.

I have witnessed blurring of seasons,
Winter hails Spring, while Summer Falls.
All while my lover has lain with another.
Vanity rests in her stare, just like cracks in the wall.

Succumb.

We waste, we waste our hearts.
Commodity walks, and she's proud.
She's killed and she'll do it again.

Who am I to say what's right?
Who am I to say just how and when?
We're living in chains, freeing the culprit over and over again.
Who am I to say what's right?
Who am I to sanctify that pen?
We're living in chains, freeing the culprit over and over again.

Please stay a while, while I take
All the maps that they've sewn in my veins,
Stretch them out to resemble the truth.
God knows I could put that to use.

I don't know that I can make it more clear,
Take the pill, down the wine.
You'll be fine, you'll be fine. No.

Who am I to say what's right?
Who am I to say just how and when?
We're living in chains, freeing the culprit over and over again.
Who am I to say what's right?
Who am I to sanctify that pen?
We're living in chains, freeing the culprit over and over

Again, and again, and again we cherish the same things.
Watch as we sell our souls for string halos and tin wings.

Fool us once, then shame on you,
You fool us twice, we shame the truth.
[We waste our hearts.]

I'll die on my feet if it's the same to you,
So blow out the candle, it serves as proof while you're watching,
Cut the limbs or we'll sever the chains.
Cut the limbs or we'll sever the chains while you're watching,
You can't escape it, rebirth, reform starts tonight.
