A conscience never burdened you
No empathy to slow you down
Others were there for you to use
Like hapless ships you ran aground

How can you sleep
The world burns at your feet
How can you forsake
The casualties you leave in your wake

You lied like other people breath
Speaking a twisted lexicon
To get your way by any means
No matter who you tread upon

How can you sleep
The world burns at your feet
How can you forsake
The casualties you leave in your wake

The saddest part is you believed
The world you fashioned in your mind
While all the people you deceived
Were slowly plotting your demise

How can you sleep
The world burns at your feet
How can you forsake
The casualties you leave in your wake

How can you sleep
The world burns at your feet
How can you forsake
The casualties you leave in your wake
