Carve the eyes out of our heads and slash our tongues if we scream
Throw the noose around the necks of the kin who sew and seek
For we are distant and too far fetched from the themes of unrest
Diverse in resistance - revamped in defying threat

Its nights like this that keep us alive
They shed our skin by the host of salvation
By the skin of my teeth retributions made serene

We never wanted it to be like this
We never wanted sympathy

Those eyes like knives throw a soiled glance of suicide
This torrid struggle is carnage to their fear

Master to servant gagged by tourniquet
Save your breath and savor this moment
For the oath of onslaught in spitting vile
Brings a pompous death to your throne

Its nights like this that keep us alive

    General Commentduring the end of this song there is a spoken part:

    "I shall come unto you like a bear whose cubs have been ravished
    Like a lion I will devour your children and tear out their entrails
    I will set upon you a ferocious beast who will consume you and your flocks
    and turn your fields into death."

    there is a little bit more that I can't make out, but if anyone knows it, by all means please post it.

    I think this song is about a group of people under servitude who rose up against their masters

    "Master to servant gagged by tourniquet
    Save your breath and savor this moment
    For the oath of onslaught in spitting vile
    Brings a pompous death to your throne"

    pretty much its saying that they rose up and now the master is the servant. That's what I see at least.
