Who put words
From sharpened tongues
Are spewing them from our mouths
Without a translation
We’re just making sounds
The pride of a lion
Is your disguise
But the fear of a coward’s
In your eyes

Your chasing the rapture
Praying for a
Perfect disaster
To save us from ourselves
We need more then miracles
We need to answer
For the blood on our hands now
And save us from ourselves

Out sight and Out of mind
Make everything alright
So let the sky and sea collide
Just not in our lifetime
The end is running
Late tonight
The kingdom comes crashing
Down into ashes
Careful what you’re asking for

Your chasing the rapture
Praying for a
Perfect disaster
To save us from ourselves
We need more then miracles
We need to answer
For the blood on our hands now
And save us from ourselves

We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers

Chasing the rapture
Praying for a
Perfect disaster
To save us from ourselves

Your chasing the rapture
Praying for a
Perfect disaster
To save us from ourselves
We need more then miracles
We need to answer
For the blood on our hands now
And save us from ourselves

We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers
We’re comfortable killers

    Song MeaningFor anyone who is unsure of the meaning of this song, the 'Rapture' is tenet of Christianity, a hypothetical future event involving the return of Christ and the destruction/end of the world. This song is about people who quite literally are 'chasing the rapture', praying for the destruction which they believe will cleanse the world. This is most common among Evangelical Christians. The band rejects this idea and assert that we must admit our error/crimes and save ourselves. Furthermore, the band is calling these people out as cowards and telling them to be careful what they wish for.

    General CommentHere's the lyrics... Sorry if there is like one or two mistakes, I'm pretty sure these are correct as I listened to the song about a hundred time. But I believe it's about how we, as humanity, rely on prayer and faith to free us from our sins, and while we are doing that, the world is going to shit. And how we need to wise up and realize what we are doing before it's too late.

    General CommentI can't make out what the very first part of the song is, but I'm 99% sure that it isn't "who put words". It sounds like a single word to me (most lyrics sites have it listed as "putrid", but that doesn't sound right to me, and they're all copied and pasted from the same original type-up of the lyrics. They all have the exact same mistakes lol)

    I just can't figure out what that word is. I make out an "ed" sound, so it's probably a verb-based adjective, but I can't find any words that sound right.
