歌词


1. GRAVEDANCER

Slowly sinking headed for disaster
Filling our lungs while we're circling the drain

Over and over
Around and around we go

Standing at the precipice of calamity
Just one step from the edge

In the end it makes no difference
In the end it makes no difference

'Cause we're all
Hypnotized by the siren's call

Then the song begins to play
As we dance around the grave
As we dance around the grave

Slowly sinking headed for disaster
A sacrifice of self destruction

Around and around again
To celebrate the end

Then the song begins to play
As we dance around the grave
Knowing we will never change
We keep on dancing round the grave
Around and around the grave

Around and around and around again
To celebrate the end
I'll dance around this grave
Until it calls my name


2. AS WE SUFFOCATE

You spend your life, trapped inside a machine,
Victimized, by the calamity.
You blur the lines, create your reality,
Swear you're awake, but you know you're asleep.

There's no rebuilding,
When the temple comes crashing down.
It's your burden to carry, and your back to break.

Hollow eyes staring as we suffocate.
We're drunk on death, and high on fire.
It's not enough to satiate,
Until the whole world burns away.

Detonate and prosper.
Corrode and bathe yourself in gold.
Throw away forever,
To become eternal.

Hollow eyes staring as we suffocate.
We're drunk on death, and high on fire.
It's not enough to satiate,
Until the whole world burns away.

Drunk on death, and high on fire.


3. TASTE OF REGRET

You're wretched spewing venom
In every single lie that you tell
Feigning all emotion
When facing the consequence
Of your own personal hell

And there's no angel left to blame
When the devil on your shoulder
Who made you bolder
Is the one laughing in your face

What goes around comes around someday

And every time I think about the words you've said
I'm reminded just to bite my tongue instead
Until every last lyric's left covered in red
Because the taste of blood is better than the taste
Better than the taste of regret

So while you're spitting into the hurricane
Trying to get rid of the bitterness
The acid from your tongue
Begins to erode again
While you sit and reminisce

So deep inside your own abyss
There is no feeling of misery
Like living in history
When you've been so poisonous

Karma comes back to sink it's fangs right in your neck

And every time I think about the words you've said
I'm reminded just to bite my tongue instead
Until every last lyric's left covered in red
Because the taste of blood is better than the taste
Better than the taste of regret

Nothing can change the past, no
And time can't and won't unshatter the glass

What goes around comes around someday

And every time I think about the words you've said
I'm reminded just to bite my tongue instead
Until every last lyric's left covered in red
Because the taste of blood is better than the taste
Better than the taste of regret


4. MUSHROOM CLOUD

Have you ever felt the chains of life around your wrist
When it shoves the grenade right in your mouth then pulls the pin
And do you really know just what it's like to never fucking sleep
Or what it's like to remind yourself that the voices don't pull the strings

They're not real to you but they're real to me
I know I'm spiraling
I'm just waiting to detonate

3, 2, 1, boom!
Countdown to insanity
3, 2, 1, boom!
Ignite the fuse and immolate
3, 2, 1, boom!
I've got a mind like a mushroom cloud
I'll either perish in the flames or be frozen in the fallout

Can someone sound the alarm?
Can someone sound the alarm?
This is not a test
This is not a test
I repeat, this is not a test

Does anyone hear the screaming
From the Trojan horse burning inside of my head?
If hell is really empty
Then maybe the demons found a home in there instead

They're not real to you, but they're real to me
And they set my mind ablaze every time that I detonate

3, 2, 1, boom!
Countdown to insanity
3, 2, 1, boom!
Ignite the fuse and immolate
3, 2, 1, boom!
I've got a mind like a mushroom cloud
I'll either perish in the flames or be frozen in the fallout

I am in control [x10]

But where do you hide
When the thoughts running through your mind trip?
Where do you hide
When the thoughts running through your head trip the landmine?
Boom!

Boom!

I've got a mind like a mushroom cloud
I've got a mind like a mushroom cloud
Boom!


5. PIECES

One by one,
I watched them crumble.
Every last conviction,
Degenerated into the air.

The Sickness,
That plagues the valley,
Has begun infecting,
Spreading its way up to the peak

Now it's coming for what's left of me.
Yeah it's coming.

The Pieces keep on falling away away,
Disappearing as I disintegrate.
Can someone wake me from this dream?
The pieces keep on falling away, as I disintegrate.

The price I pay
For laying on the blade
Has me withering
I fall to pieces everyday.

It's coming for the rest of us,
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

The Pieces keep on falling away away,
Disappearing as I disintegrate.
Can someone wake me from this dream?
The pieces keep on falling away, as I disintegrate.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

The same fate, for all of us.

The Pieces keep on falling away away,
Disappearing as I disintegrate.
Can someone wake me from this dream?
The pieces keep on falling away, as I disintegrate.


6. DECEIVER/DECEIVED

Do you believe,
Everything you hear,
Or is it only what you see?

Is everything really black and white,
Or is it all a shade of grey?

Tell me,

Is your head in the clouds,
Or buried underground?

Lie, deny, evade,
And bend the truth until it starts to break.
Distort reality.
So fake, persuade, betray,
Then tell yourself that everyone's to blame,
Deceiver and deceived.

Have you been sold,
The river full of gold?
The castle on the hill of sand?

Do you now see
The forest for the trees
Or do you keep falling for the sleight of hand?

It's your head in the clouds
Our buried underground?

Lie, deny, evade,
And bend the truth until it starts to break.
Distort reality.
So fake, persuade, betray,
Then tell yourself that everyone's to blame,
Deceiver and deceived.

Truth is not relative.
Truth is absolute.
To reject truth is a choice,
And every choice has a consequence.

Lie, deny, evade,
Fake, persuade, betray.

Lie, deny, evade,
And bend the truth until it starts to break.
Distort reality.
So fake, persuade, betray,
Then tell yourself that everyone's to blame,
Deceiver and deceived.


7. EARTH & SKY

I felt you dragging me into a shallow grave
The dirt became a place to rest, but it betrays
You'll never stop me, your reign has ended
You'll never hold down that which has ascended

I won't run, I won't turn away
I won't let you get the best of me
I won't fall in your gravity
Open your eyes
You're the earth and I'm the sky

You are the single stone amongst infinity
I am the wind that blows, I am the voice inside the rain

Can you feel the cold wind blowing
Unrelenting, everlasting?
Do you feel it in your bones?
Do you feel it in your soul?

I won't run, I won't turn away
I won't let you get the best of me
I won't fall in your gravity
Open your eyes

I won't run (run), I won't turn away
I won't let you get the best of me
I won't fall (fall) in your gravity
Open your eyes
You're the earth and I'm the sky

You're the earth and I'm the sky


8. THE MOUNTAIN

I took my heart in my hands,
And placed it inside the mountain,
Because I can't stand to think,
That the strongest roots won't,
Save you when the bough breaks.

I count the days on my hands,
That I've sat inside this mountain,
And watched the world decay.
Beaten by the wind, and fire, and rain.

Plagues and pestilence, they fill my head.
Trapped in the finality of every end.
When every tear shed becomes a sea,
For you to sink in...

You have the same disease,
And the contagion spreads.
The same disease as me,
The curse of empathy.

All hail the mountain.
Cold and callous.
Bastion of blood and stone.
All hail the mountain,
Alter and antidote.

You have the same disease,
And the contagion spreads.
The same disease as me,
The curse of empathy.

Have I just become a monolith,
Somewhere in between gallant and grotesque?
Well, I could never find peace in emptiness,
With these drums of war pounding in my chest.

I refuse to come down.
Leave me inside my mountain.
Leave me inside my mountain.
Leave me inside my mountain.

All hail the mountain
Alter, and antidote.


9. MELTDOWN

I watched you burn every bridge,
Then blame the smoke,
For your eyes burning.

You can turn out the lights,
And stand real still,
But the world keeps turning.

We all breakdown in the meltdown.

Are we building it up, to tear it back down,
Or are we spinning in place?
Does solidarity lie in the meltdown,
Or is it just too late?

I know the past has a sting,
But here's the thing,
You can't replace it.

So just know,
I'll either make amends,
Or I will raise the dead.
And to me, it's all the same.

We all breakdown, in the meltdown.

Are we building it up, to tear it back down,
Or are we spinning in place?
Does solidarity lie in the meltdown,
Or is it just too late?

We all breakdown, in the meltdown,
And to me it's all the same.

Are we building it up, to tear it back down,
Or are we spinning in place?
Does solidarity lie in the meltdown,
Or is it just too late?


10. LINGER

Some things are unending,
Persisting, pushing us to break.
And I am done,
Pretending I'm not drowning in it's wake.

Because time passes by,
Just like rain falling through my fingers,
And though night becomes the day,
And seasons change,
The pain, it always lingers.

It never goes away.

The light is warm but the shadow remains.
In cracks in the pavement and lines in your face.
And I am done,
Pretending this will ever go away.

But time passes by,
Just like rain falling through my fingers,
And though night becomes the day,
And seasons change,
The pain, it never goes away.
Yeah, time passes by,
Just like rain falling through my fingers,
And though night becomes the day,
And seasons change,
The pain, it always lingers.

I hope wherever you are.
That you're finally free,
I hope you've found your peace.

The grief's like a wave.
There's love in the pain.
You know where your heart is,
When you feel it break.
When loss is a shipwreck,
And sadness a sea,
Hearts of gold and stone, all sink.

Time passes by,
Just like rain falling through my fingers,
And though night becomes the day,
And seasons change,
The pain, it never goes away.
Yeah, time passes by,
Just like rain falling through my fingers,
And though night becomes the day,
And seasons change,
The pain, it always lingers.


11. HOW TO SURVIVE

They look down from their ivory tower
At a world they never really knew
They light their torches and draw their arrows
They're on the hunt, and tonight the prey is you

But I can show you what it's like

What it's like to be hated
What it's like to be degraded
What it's like to be a target
But have skin as thick as steel
I'll show you how to bring chaos
I'll show you how to be dangerous
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I'll show you how to survive

Now you've seen from behind the veil
Kings, knights and pawns all bleed the same
I refuse to be one of the fallen
I refuse to be one of the slain

And I can show you what it's like

What it's like to be hated
What it's like to be degraded
What it's like to be a target
But have skin as thick as steel
I'll show you how to bring chaos
I'll show you how to be dangerous
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I'll show you how to survive

I'll show you how to survive
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I'll show you how to survive

I refuse to be one of the fallen
I refuse to be one of the slain

And I can show you what it's like

What it's like to be hated
What it's like to be degraded
What it's like to be a target
But have skin as thick as steel
I'll show you how to bring chaos
I'll show you how to be dangerous
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I'll show you how to survive
