dead black eyes lyrics – in virtue

[ms. c:]
deep and silent
tidal current
swallowing miles of sh*r*
a shadow consuming the coastline
mountains are islands and islands are no more

swimming, lost in a nightmare
we’re sinking off to sleep in a liquid grave
search in vain for solid ground
seven hundred fathoms down

[trey:]
there will be no survivors
only corpses in the riptide

[ms. c:]
mighty poseidon will have his way

cities lost in a deluge
another sunken monument to the dead
all along the ocean floor
everything you’ve ever known

[trey:]
there will be no survivors
only victims in the feeding frenzy
there will be no deliverance
only corpses in the worldwide red tide

[ms. c:]
sea and sun
and no other
here they come
eyes of murder
we gave our hearts but it could not be saved
we’ll lay the earth in a watery grave
and i’ll sing a requiem for you
of gnashing teeth and dead black eyes
and as the screams fall silent
another species cauterized
we’ll bleed into the water
and bleach beneath a blood red sun
no witness to the slaughter
but blackened eyes that overrun the world

[trey:]
all around you the water will rise
and the last thing you see will be
dead black eyes

an endless horror wakened
a seething sea of kraken
something brushes past your feet
they don’t come to hunt
they come to feed

[ms. c:]
mouth of madness
open wide
face the horror deep inside
the belly of the beast

all around you the water will rise
flooding the world with a vengeance
coming towards you the blackest of eyes
a murderous gaze in the waves
mighty poseidon will have his way
taking the earth as his kingdom
only oceans to mark where we lay
and circling fins for a gravestone

[trey:]
all around you the water will rise
there will be no survivors
