lyrics

Where did it start?
You once were so perfect
The apple of every man’s eye
Now you’ve grown old
Dim, fat, and worthless
An icon for all to despise
As has been said
Soon shall above be below
Great in the past
Defeated at last
The modern day ice age is now

Emblems of bright blue and red
Fade to a cowardly white
The tempest arrives and is gone

Pity the dragon
Her ancient scales rot
Once the scourge of the land
Now a joke
Her fiery breath
An inferno divine
Now comes out in small black wisps of smoke
Don’t tell me you’re proud
Proud of what?
There’s no dignity, pride to be had
As you crouch o’er your dwindling hoard
Shield your eyes
Lay down and die
As has been said
Soon shall above be below
Crippled and cursed
The best shall be worst
The wyrm damned to soon die alone

Frost to mist
No gray area
Pull the plug and be done with it
Drawn here for all
A symmetry axis
Between restitution and vengeance
Paraplegic yet running the race
Waiting to be trampled under
So many years, they’ve waited so patient
Now they gather ‘round to watch you die

Shield your eyes
Lay down and die
Shield your eyes
You’re sleeping in the eye of the hurricane
