Sowing the seeds.
Roots dig deep, whilst we sleep.
Snakes in veins, valves decay.
All of the meaningless words we say.

Cast the first stone, from behind the throne.
Crown of thorns, now overgrown.
All our wants and needs, bring us to our knees.
Can't turn back now the seeds are sown.

Seven billion, one of a kind.
Collide together, intertwined.
National lines used to define,
where we draw the enemy lines.

Weapons aren't used in this war.
Wait for the fallout from this absence of thought.
All the things we can't afford to ignore.
The sun doesn't shine anymore.

    General CommentI think it's about betrayal and having to live with the choices you've made overall. It's like, while we're digging our own graves, we're turning a blind eye to what's happening.. but there will come a point where we're not going to be able to deny it or look away any longer, and we're just going to have to live with what our selfishness, pride, and greed as humans has brought us to.

    Great song♥
    This band is amazing.
