Shamed by the weak and cast down in disgust
A shell of a broken man without trust
Preaching upon open ears of the deaf
Depraved words uttered beneath your cold breathe
Killing what's left of the embers of youth
Sraping and clawing for a whisper of truth
Sewing our mouths shut as nothing escapes
Love and grave is a display of a man you once were

But unlike the hand of Midas
What you touch with turn to shit
Blood will flow between us
And the ground will shake until you repent your sins

The touch of cold skin and the embrace of life
In darkness dwells secrets in a holy disguise
Nothing will soothe you, old hands will turn numb
Silence will not speak

But unlike the hand of Midas
What you touch will turn to shit
Burn this fucking saviour
Until you see the damage you cause

    General CommentThis is the oldest song on the album. It's packed with heavy riffing. It's the perfect track to close the album with as it's got a really epic, triumphant outro and fades out into some really ambient guitar chords. In a way it's like the opening track in that it showcases a lot of the variety on the album

    General CommentOne of the few metal tracks I have to admit that almost has me in tears! LOL! The lyrics just scream for someone's absolution and the guitar work on the outro is enough to almost make this old metalhead cry!
