We are the new gods
same as the old gods
we’ll take all your blood
and turn it into mud
as Rome burns
one by one
two by two
together they ride
side by side
into love
together they die
and still they want to weather the tide
as Rome burns

Forgiveness all your days
to count what you can’t save
we’ll take out one good eye
and leave a world to fall behind
as Rome burns

I see them everywhere out shaking to the beat
cursing out their elements
with chaos, chaos bleats
and what seemed urgent then turns wicked in the heat
as Rome burns to the motherfucking ground.
