lyrics

“Twice Broken”
There isn’t much between this life and what is next,
So look into the abyss and you’ll see what is left.
For us now.
So hide behind your ignorance and hide behind your hate.
There’s so little time for disillusion in this race.
So we all waste away these days wanting more,
But we’re so wrapped up in this angst that we adore.
There she goes down again,
One last look before the end.

So we lie here in the sand,
Crushed by the weight of what we don’t understand.
Time moves along, it seems, without an end.
So we hide away like lost and broken men,

So we look to the future,
We look to the dawn.
Damaged and broken,
This path we’re all on
Crumbling beneath our most tentative step.
As the ground fall away,
We’re caught in this web of death and deception.
We’re shamed and alone
Burdened by falsehood,
The coin and the throne.
Betrayal conceived in lies and deceit.
Abandoned,
Extorted,
We’re left in the streets.

Empty wallets and broken fucking homes,
Our cries lost in the din of suburban drone.
Let your anger loose in the night.
Broken bodies,
Broken bones all out of sight.
So we look to the man on the hill,
To save us from ourselves,
Save us from the kill.
We wear our ignorance like pride on our sleeves,
Hide behind the bullshit,
As stupid as we please.

(chorus)
