lyrics

Plague

kiss your dead but don’t you cry don’t shed a tear you tell them why
they’re dead to me no pearls to swine just grapes of wrath just sour wine

they’re all the same just pass the blame it’s my father it’s my mother
it’s my unfaithful brothers not my lack of common sense
not my bloodied greedy hands

there’s no shame live your life for destruction you’ll find your peace as the enemy but you faking your innocence it’s disgusting
who’s to blame when the sick go untreated and the blind keep losing their way?
is it the fingers in your ears or the other gods you’ve trusted who don’t even know your name?
either way it’s a plague
as she is dying I’m faithfully prescribing
a perfect worthless pill just to keep the order filled
they’re sick they’re sick they’re sick of hearing me
screaming in their ears the truth they’ll never hear
everyone dies a villain or a bride if only we’d wear the ring while there’s still time.

there’s a wall between ten and eleven where grace is shot down in hatred and the jury is hanging for our crimes and each star is paying with his life there’s a room in the basement built for dark and starvation and ten men barely breathing and three still repeating the prayers of just one man like a ghost he is innocent but as he dies for a stranger, he whispers these words: “the cross is a school, the cross is the school of love.” waiting for you waiting for you waiting for you to die and the plague comes and it’s our fault and the plague comes and it’s all ours built for our lungs built for our hearts built for our blood feel the plague come and the pot boils over and the metal it glows and the ashes and the ashes by ashes they’ll know like father like son God have mercy on them both

Ezekiel 18 & 24
