lyrics

What I see here
Are the greatest men who ever lived
Eyes sharper than a crescent moon
We wrote the book on
How to do things the wrong way
Our endurance lies in our legend

Our acrimony won't be tamed by accession
Now we are become death
The destroyer of worlds

There is no god or
Demon perfect liar who can
Co-opt our cause and
Flog it back on temerity
Hands veiled under a helping word
If they are watching us
They do not care

We'll wash our eyes out with blood
We'll bleach our skin with napalm
We'll quench our thirst with
Gasoline and a lit match
There's not one thing you can do
We've not taken before
We were born in the darkness and
Moulded by it
It's through our pain
That we've found the strength of our souls
Look down the abyss
You can't know us

Striking the tinder box
Over and over again
Where we go's always endless
Preaching the rapture and
Calamity and ballpark regret
Strained by the hopelessness
Burning fields
Purging the self
Risk all for self-destruction
Flames and smoke run their course
We compel all nations
On pain of extinction

We are everywhere
Unmoving with a granite stare
Our aprons are tacking with
Clutching fingers
Our boot crushes the old
Our march won't stop to mourn them
We are grizzled and scarred
We are moulded by this

We are so far gone
That our return is just as deadly
We're resigned to this fate
Eyes glowing like dogs
No coins for our passing
Only in death do we have a name
Only as the rain falls
And the sky splits to the moon
The sand will melt
And the soul is broken
The last chord will be struck
The last cymbal snapped
Our annexation's this
We are everywhere

We are everywhere
