lyrics

Sunrise, another day has dawned.
This war, forever has dragged on.
Death tallies marked within my mind have left more scars than I can stand inside.
No more than metal imprints on the chain upon my neck.
Fall in line; in fear and fate we’ll land each step

Invoke, my rage to stay this course.
Forget, the guilt of my remorse.

Remember, these days live on forever.
There may be a god but there is no saviour.
Counting, waiting, these clocks tick on forever.
Blood spilt unjust endeavour.
We pray for this no longer.

Cold hands, empty eyes I see in dark.
No peace, no rest within my heart.
Voices whisper to me in my mind.
Reminding me of all I’ve left behind.
I will not forfeit my own soul

Remember, these days live on forever.
There may be a god but there is no saviour.
Counting, waiting, these clocks tick on forever.
Blood spilt unjust endeavour.
We pray for this no longer.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
in blood and sorrow where I steep;
If I should die before I wake
I pray the lord would let me die in peace.

Six feet down
In darkness may my spirit lie as I drift into nothingness.
Six feet down
May the void be my savior as the pain of this war is brought to bittersweet ending.
Six feet down
Scratch the marks from my grave let me rot left forgotten.
Six feet down
Nothing more than a piece in this tragic game.
Six feet down
I fear no death.
