thieves lyrics – letter to the exiles

you said that you would bury us,
break our backs and turn us into dust.

you are breaking the boundary of your own existence.
did you think it would fall so fast?
what is this but some weak resistance,
or a lie that could never last?

they cry redemption with closed lips
so all we hear is the silence.
holy were we once, and holy will we be.

i did not come for your questions
i came looking for peace.

a conviction that’s pushing us into the ground,
it’s enough to bleed out the weak and offer hope for
none.

you gave up everything.
you’re a traitor to your own faith.
your progress, it follows a humble step.
i’ll unchain your lies in a single breath.
every open wound can be taken away.
every single word will mean nothing to me.
you’ve forgotten who you are.
you forgot what you came for. take it back!
