I made a pact to not sleep through the end
All of the dreamers are stuck in their beds
Fight off the attraction to always play dead
I'm tortured by white noise in half hour sets
Ears ringing
Your mouth ran for miles but hasn't gone anywhere
You're lost.
I heard the word on the street and it means nothing to me
So how do you like me now?
Where's your passion?
The Renaissance man is a thing of the past
To you it's fashion
Dress up; don't address what keeps us from resting
The jackals circle for the feast
I try to fight it off, but it's consuming me
The rapture has only begun (while you sleep, they watch you breathing)
And you can bet it gets worse when the moon crashes into the sun (while you dream, both ends are burning)
Pray for one more chance (they will steal air from your lungs)
In the back of the hearse, overturned as your insides prolapse (wake before, before it's too fucking late)
Everyone has a skeleton key
Everyone rots in captivity
Everyone is sleeping off the heat
You shut the blinds as they cauterize what lives inside,
You shut the blinds as they cauterize what lives inside.

    General Commenti guess ill be the first on this song. im surprised no one commented on this already, its one of the greatest nonstop heavy songs on the album. "THE RAPTURRREE HAS ONLY BEGUN!!!" just got into the bled a couple months ago, but they're badass, and im usually into more metal than hardcore.
