lyrics

The city lights will learn their worth
They’re like stars burning here on the earth
And birds begin to crowd the tree tops

They wonder why the water rises
Soon the bay will cover every bridge
reflected in the flood
the moon begins to turn to blood

Azrael's call breaks the chains on our feet
It’s hard to walk as the sun and gravity grow weaker.
And all the dead begin to speak.

Something like a dome covers the sky
And eye covered wheels roam the night
My brothers too betrayed
The priest's forgotten how to pray

Angels carry away the dying
Throats full of trumpets, wings are sighing
Our flesh is called unto the clay
As the world begins to fall away.

C
But our love is just awakening
You hold my arm in the fog it is so nice
We catch the sight of headlights sweep
But the light doesn’t reach where we lay.
On a bed of pine we dream of the kiss
That’ll leap like fire from our lips
And the storm scatters from us until there’s only quiet.

We close our eyes but cannot sleep
The scythes have fallen and begun to reap
The streets where all our bullets lay
The minefields where the children play.

Their shadows grow we hear the scream
Of creatures no ones ever heard or seen
We shiver in the deepest cold
We beg the sun to not withhold

The warning fires begin to dim
The earth peels back reveals the rusted skin
Of beasts that for 2,000 years
Have hungered for the blood of man.

Ultra violence in my childrens' eyes
A tunnel through the frantic night
I wore my countries sins like a badge of gold
Against my skin they felt so cold.

Chorus:
But our love is just awakening
You hold my arm in the fog it is so nice
We catch the sight of headlights sweep
But the light doesn’t reach where we lay.
On a bed of pine we dream of the kiss
That’ll leap like fire from our lips
And the storm scatters from us until there’s only quiet.
