lyrics

Where have the monsters gone?
You said, you swore, you would wait for me
Should I return, my crown to reclaim
Nonexistent, hardly breathing
You shame me through yourselves
The past is broken
The pile undone

No sword in my back, but none by my side
The legions indifferent, the battlefield empty
A win by default, a loss in reality
So far I’ve traveled, nowhere have I gone
Young and the restless, the old and decrepit
The ravens that stood on my shoulders have flown
Scavengers watching, they remain with me
To herald my coming and see to my end

Bound, gagged, masochist machismo
Held back, left to wander now…

Here where the wild things aren’t
The forests weep in silence
Even the sea for solace moans
Its shores are tainted
Only the ghosts who haunt it know
Only they remember
Now

Venus in limbo, Vulcan’s forge silent

Redemption, rebirth
Sweep the vermin from the earth
Rebuild the fires of the past
Inception in turns
Receive but what we’ve earned
Invert the sacred, revere the iconoclast

Our sanctum defiled, our paradise vanquished
The idols we placed on our altars have crumbled
To dust in this desolate, forsaken wasteland
Bled but unbroken the veins now swell shut
The castles we built, the ground where our children played
Burned or abandoned to time and decay
Left like a whore on the side of a roadway
Beaten and bloodied and fucked into her grave

Bound, gagged, masochist machismo
Held back, left to wander now…
