lyrics

Desperate Lives

Gone - the stars and the moon they are gone
What’s left here is stark truth in sun
The brightness destroys while it glares
And I can’t find anything…

There against what I’ve come to find
Deep within, the violence on the inside
Garden dripping with memories
Roses black and ravaged from disease

Gone - my heart hurts, the saviors have gone
Their messages twisted to spawn
A hatred so deep it despairs
The light cannot reach what is…

There against what I’ve come to find
Deep within, the violence on the inside
Garden dripping with memories
Roses black and ravaged from disease
Terror starts at home, they say
I can find it easily every day
Snakes constrict around desperate lives
Make the noise stop
Are we out of time?

Nothing gets through
Don’t let this destroy you

There against what I’ve come to find
Deep within, the violence on the inside
Garden dripping with memories
Roses black and ravaged from disease
Terror starts at home, they say
I can find it easily every day
Snakes constrict around desperate lives
Make the noise stop
Are we out of time?
