Father, I know that you've witnessed a darkness in me 'Twas spawned in shadows of the old gallows tree I'm but a sad depraved reflection of our inhumanity The warped exaggeration of the lost and darkest of dreams Bring forth a wrath of cleansing fire Here now in mankind's bleakest hour Born of a casket I'm the heir to a corpse I've eyes that see maggots through the thin flesh they bore I shall bloody my hands 'til the last breath be torn from me So blindly we walk the winds of these plagued streets Dead, the once feeling part of me Oh lord divine, please break this silence Destroy your race of faceless liars At the edge of existence We the clays of intention have ripened in your image Ah, the binds of tradition Your archaic deception numbs our empty beings City that stands on a million graves In a world full of hatred to fear enslaved Countless the dead slaughtered in your name Not a utter of your voice have you once repaid No above, no below, just a man letting go When all my earthly desire is disowned No screaming sirens should sound No revelations profound Simply lowered into the ground That's just what I'll be dead in the dirt So blindly we walk the winds of these plagued streets Dead, the once feeling part of me Bring forth a wrath of cleansing fire Here now in mankind's bleakest hour Oh lord divine, please break this silence Destroy your race of faceless liars Necropolis
