lyrics

THIS BODY BROKE UPON THE ROCKS
AKIN TO RESTLESS WATER
COLLISION WITH COLOSSAL CLIFFS
HAVE CLAIMED BOTH SONS AND DAUGHTERS
AND AS THE OCEAN DISSIPATES, RETRACTS AND
BUILDS ITS FORM
SO SHALL I MEND THIS DAMAGED VESSEL
BLOOD, FLESH, TOOTH AND NAIL

CONSTRUCTED THE LADDER TO FIND YOU
THE SCENT OF MY PREY IS WHAT DRIVES ME
CONSTRICTED THE GUILT OF MY CONSCIENCE
BUT DARKNESS IS ONLY WHAT YOU DESERVE

I SHALL SUMMON THE SHADOWS AND BLACK OUT THE SUN
SHINE ON VILLAINOUS BEING, IN TIME VICTORY IS MINE
I SHALL SUMMON THE SHADOWS AND BLACK OUT THE SUN
SHINE ON VILLAINOUS BEING, THIS DAY VICORY IS MINE

I SHAN’T BE BEATEN BY THE SHORE
FOR HOURS I’VE LONGED
YOU HAVE ALL BUT DEFEATED US
A MERE DIAL SHALL NOT CONQUER US


BROKEN, BATTERED, BANDAGED, STILL STRONGER THAN BEFORE
FOCUSED, FIGHTING, FEARING, THE SUN WILL SHINE NO MORE


FROM THE ASHES I SHALL RISE AGAIN
THESE WAVES ONCE BATTERED ME NOW CALM CREEPS IN
THIS GOLDEN GOD ONCE SHONE SO BRIGHT
NOW DULL AND MEANINGLESS, I’VE TAKEN HIS LIGHT
THOSE SONS AND DAUGHTERS YOU SO CHEAPLY CLAIMED
I KNOW THEIR NAMES NOW YOU SHALL SHARE THEIR PAIN

FROM THE ASHES I SHALL RISE AGAIN
THOSE WAVES ONCE BATTERED ME NOW CALM CREEPS IN
THIS GOLDEN GOD ONCE SHONE SO BRIGHT
NOW DULL AND MEANINGLESS, I’VE TAKEN ALL HIS LIGHT
