From flesh to steel,
I fortify,
I fortify this easily splintered bone into a stronghold of will,
As the balance of man lay beaten in the wake,
In the wake of it's own,
In the wake of it's own frailty,
Hollow words will burn,
Hollow men will burn,
A horde eager to accept deceit and more so to speak it,
Words will sear the throats of all who freely beguile,
The truth burns through my veins and in my black heart,
Breath the flame that will overwhelm you,
Flaw ignites swiftly,
A horde eager to accept deceit and more so to speak it,
Words will sear the throats of all who freely beguile,
Freely beguile,
A product of conceit so absorbed and vain that he thinks himself divine,
He is sure to die,
Deprived of life,
And man must truly be God,
For he has tried so hard to create me in his image,
Deprived of life,
A formless shadow deprived of life,
I am the wayward son of man,
My fathers have darkened what was the warmest heart the world would have ever known,
Relish in what you have created,
Deprived of life,
A formless shadow deprived of life,
Set your body ablaze,
How can flesh be arrogant when it is so easily charred,
A lesson need be learned,
These blistered hands will come to be the iron fist that bestows true and proper perspective,
Set your body ablaze,
Burn,
Hollow words will burn and hollow men will burn.
