into the nowhere lyrics – agent steel

the god sighed and silence was born
a tortured life is spared of vision
and it’s painful when it’s worn
the cloak of shame spares no protection

his world is made of steel
in his hands, he bent the fire
to mold a thing so real
a burning world born of desire

his hope was not enough to fill an empty cup
he simply let it drain into the nowhere
there is no reckoning, there is no bargaining
in symbol, rain will fall as he lays weeping

we stand below rinsed by the tears
unlike rain they bring no healing
rust corrodes the souls
of children wrought to match his image

abandoned with all of his cares
no choice but to wait for the kindness of time
to erase us one and all
to flow like a river with no beginning

his hope was not enough to fill an empty cup
he simply let it drain into the nowhere
there is no reckoning, there is no bargaining
in symbol rain will fall

head in hands and weary eyes
the failures scratch and carve the lines
into the face of one
the lines into the face of none

he sees his world, he sees his dream
and nothing’s ever as it seems
the promise was so real
now all that’s left is crumbled steel

no prayers are said in his name
n*body knew that he ever existed
alone he accepts all the blame
plaintively wonders how dreams become twisted

and he waits for another to come
another, a chance to revive from the nothing
the fabric to weave once again
to forge from the fire his vision of man

his hope was not enough to fill an empty cup
he simply let it drain into the nowhere
there is no reckoning, there is no bargaining
in symbol rain will fall as he lays weeping

his hope was not enough to fill an empty cup
he simply let it drain into the nowhere
let it drain into the nowhere
let it drain into
