Lyrics by Siervo

lyrics

I gave ear to your call
Falling into your trap
Overwhelmed by torrents of praise and promises of power
Enamored at the person I was chosen to be

I swim through your venom
Driven by the rage of a weakening pulse
Ready to strike your Gorgon tongue
At the head of every promise

As I moved through your sea of words
I grew hungry
Enslaved without fill

I sunk with every step
Pleading for water
I was not filled

I swim through your venom
Driven by the rage of a weakening pulse
Ready to strike your Gorgon tongue
At the head of every promise

But now I can see you in the distance
Perverting the stars
As a beacon of false light
Crippling deceiver!

I swim through your venom
Driven by the rage of a weakening pulse
Ready to strike your Gorgon tongue
At the head of every promise
