lyrics

When the oceans and rivers purge
No mans weight could deter the current...
Washed away.
Washed away.

They are formed from her skin.
Dermis stretched over marrow masses.
They wander out on shaking legs.
In your wake life is born.
Are they blood? For you share the same mother.
Are they blood? Or the strain of another?
They swarm around his body, in search for the seed.
They swarm around his body, from his wounds they shall feed.

Crystal eyes stare at broken bones and bloodied cloths.
Tears spew in vein for here there is no home.
Are they blood? For you share the same mother.
Are they blood? Or the strain of another?
They swarm around his body, in search for the seed.
They swarm around his body, from his wounds they shall feed.

Silence, Silence, Khayyam please!
What is it that this man utters through a tightening jaw?
For in a gust of wind i swore i heard him call your name...
Silence, Silence, Khayyam please!
Who is this man who's death brings life to these foreign beasts.
WHO IS THIS MAN?!
WHO IS THIS MAN?!

Where the hell in the world do you think we are?
And what is the cost of the toll?
If i showed you the end of the world
would you just turn your face away?
If i showed you the end of the world
would it be a disaster?
Or would it be a blessing to us all?

When the vultures find you
there will be nothing left to scavenge.

Lets keep this one secret,
Hidden before twos and threes.
I stuck my head down a fox hole...
you won't believe what i saw!
I saw a land with ferocious beasts!
I saw a land unmarked by human feet!
Then i just got washed away.
Then we all just got washed away.
