You’ve been meddling with spirits, You’ve been juggling with our pain Like a sorcerer incarnate without form to pave the way Innocence no longer trembles for the reckoning of dismay As our voices turn to dust that pave the way Awakening enkindled forge the river burning brine Resolution impregnated with a backward paradigm Averse to constitution that was born into the minds Of emancipated truths and oversight Unworthy of this world, surrendering to lies Fallen from the tree, lamenting our demise a million second chances that we cast into the fire Smoldering in vacant compromise Bewildered messengers and spectators of the feud Baffled and confused to raise their arms and shield the truth Prophecy has told us we endure the end of all To deny and suffer, we all learn by heart Unworthy of this world, surrendering to lies Fallen from the tree, lamenting our demise a million second chances that we cast into the fire smoldering in vacant compromise There’s a worn out joy suspended in the memories we bear And the ever present shame for what tomorrow we have birthed For the ones that bear the future , I am filled with true remorse As our voices turn to dust and pave the course

To be wandering on broken days and be swallowed by the smoke of your careless ways Stumbling down and try to reach the pain With a dagger in my love you know the pain will never feel the same Slowing down the body falls apart I don’t know about the light, Try to sleep without the dark and we’ll see So hard to know and close your eyes to be These are truly troubled times and everybody’s got to bleed Ive been thinking bout the world gone wrong I’ve been thinking about leaving town I’ve been singing an empty song And these words are runnin’ outta sound Iv’e been thinking bout the world gone wrong and I find myself singing the same damn song Roll me over on history Try to focus on what I see Lets consider the realities It ain’t easy when your eyes build a wall around all you see It’s too simple to pick up the key and you turn around the truth like a steadfast philistine In the light of a latrine of a fortress thin I cast stones at the prison walls holding my goddess in There ain’t a man that can save you now For a thousand years wept, we could have tried harder, somehow Ive been thinking bout the world gone wrong I’ve been thinking about leaving town I’ve been singing an empty song And these words are runnin’ outta sound Iv’e been thinking bout the world gone wrong and I find myself singing the same damn song Roll me over on history Try to focus on what I see
