I have seen them turn to nothing
Still the taste for life’s unfading
Vanishing like thoughts of kindness
Losing everything to numbness

And you embrace the sale
Persuaded through the veil
Of culture
Sensation leads the way
Respect for life decays

Vanity prevails
Reveals the blind man's trail
Truth won’t make you see
Cries won’t make you hear
Doubt won’t make you think
Thought won’t make you feel

I have seen you stealing life
Cheapening blood that flows like water
Stepping on the plank to pleasure
Sacrificing their volition


from Heavy Crowns, released January 28, 2019
