about

Track 5 from the new EP "ira."

lyrics

"The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control, and not the other way around."

Don't act surprised
(We are cancer)
Swallow your pride
(We must be the cure)
Weakness aside
(We can't wait here for you.)
Capitalize
(Give us progress.)
Rationalize
(Give us reason.)
Desensitized
Disparage science cause it's too much to take.

Desire,
In spite of consequence.
Bloodlust,
And it's killing you.
Disaster will answer no one.
Wasteland,
But you're praying for rain.
Wasteland,

Let the rapture begin
Wash us away from here
Wash them away,
From here.

Why can't you stand up for restitution.
Apathy sank that ship long ago.
So say goodbye to ideals,
Goodbye to the paragon.

You can't walk the walk with broken knees.
You can't talk the talk with shattered teeth.
You can't survive,
Off of withering land.

How am I supposed to feel,
When my happiness... Dies.
How am I supposed to feel,
When my happiness is laced with guilt?

Oh!
You've got to give it up, give it up!
Oh!
You are no salt of the earth
Oh!
We've got to shake it up, shake it up!
The road to hell is paved in gold.

Anything for anyone but...
Anything for anyone but...
I guess, I guess,
You won't do anything for anyone but you.

You're all so narcissistic.
(So turned on)
By the damage you're causing here.
Oh! You're so careless
But you won't be,
When she's tearing you apart.

The siren.
She bears a cadaverous grin
Soon, Mother nature
Will hold fast for anything,
For anyone but you.

I guess, I guess you will die,
Choking, convulsing.

I sleep in my riverbed, alone.
Under the vale of tears.
Oh!

Your vanity is your virtue.

How am I supposed to feel,
When my happiness is laced with guilt?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this exactly what you counted on?
If I had some faith in man,
I'd say we're all in this together,
But we're not.

Belief won't make things right.
We will be baptized in fire.
Cancer consuming.
Oh, the end of fucking nigh.
So pick a God and pray.
Oh God, we're running out of time.

Oh!
What's so hard to understand?
If you only have one life, one world, one chance to revive.
Wouldn't you bring her back, bring it back

Our mother suffers at our hands.
(I know you won't take the blame for anything).
Turn parasite to medicine.
(I know we could change the course of everything).

Is this what you wanted?
Is this exactly what you counted on?
If I had some faith in man,
I'd say we're all in this together,
But we're not.
Is this what you wanted?
Is this exactly what you need?
Well I hope you're fucking satisfied,
For we've been raped by corporate greed
For too long.

Our mother suffers at our hands.
(I know you won't take the blame for anything)
And we can't wait for you.
(I know we could change the course of everything).

Don't take their world
Away, away from them.
Don't take this away
From us.
Or by sunrise we will be dust.
