the counter shift lyrics – ever forthright

failing to put in genuine effort
for the time, the end is official
perilous, the cost is way too high
and only in the way
steel frame, distant sight
and so unbreakable
the pattern by which you will now decide
and learn to let someone else be free

there is no escape from the past this time
f*ck the bed that you’re making
wake up in a burning grave
never mind all the times that we would fly
cut the chord, bend the fabric’s essence
and moderate the lies

(oh god)
(oh my god)
they’re coming out
bound for generations
the shadows of a fallen kind
back out, back out again
the bleeding souls
infected
draining the life of everything

we the ones who redefine the light
still we walk alone
because of all the things in life
the curse is in the knowledge
we the ones who redefine the light
still we walk alone
before waking up
close your eyes

we are the prototypes of the universe
we are alone

only believe the silence in your heart
cross the tragedy

failing to put in genuine effort
for the time, the end is official
perilous, the cost is way too high
and far beyond the pay
steel frame, distant sight
and so unbreakable
the pattern by which you will now decide
and learn to let someone else be free

blood, faith, christ, lies, blood
there is no god
