lyrics

No civility left when push comes to shove
Open the gates of pure atrocity
No one can hide
No one is safe with desperation’s hands around your throat
Show me what
What you’re made of

Your humanity is just a shadow
A sham
A ghost of what’s left behind
Killed by our own designs
Begging for naught

Chaos
Devour the world alive
Betraying each other

Suck it up
It only hurts for a second once you’ve gone too far
Still I never asked you why
The horror brings the thrill
The glamour
Makes you feel alive

As you string them up and cover your eyes
I won’t wait for you to prove yourself
As you burn the past and leave it to rot
Keep bending my will
(Submit yourself to panic)
String them up and cover your eyes
I won’t wait for you to prove yourself
As you burn the past and leave it to rot
Keep bending my will

No one can hide
