You Don't Make Heroes Out Of Warlocks

lyrics

Capital vices, cardinal sins
But to err is to be human
Capital vices, cardinal sins
Bracing for impending Armageddon

Dead roots hold no water
Sun-dried vines writhe on the sidewalk
Archaic cancer has transferred
Skyscrapers compromised each block
They'll ensnare those whom you love
And strangle them all one-by-one
In the name of, in the name of

Decomposing in our eternal present
That you reminisce about
In the future-tense with your past-mouth
The slaughtering of sacred cows
In a sea of flames, they all drown
Would I dare seek out your guidance now?

Innermost animals: unshackled
These changes, I cannot control
The vultures weigh in: "Is that acceptable skin?"
Before feasting on impoverished beasts below
They will poach the ones you love
And consume them all one-by-one
In the name of, in the name of

Decomposing in our eternal present
That you reminisce about
Would I dare seek out your council now?

Some will starve for glory
Others search for death
But some may find no difference
When they have nothing left

Is this really the way to fight the dark?
That uncertainty plaguing my mind and heart
How about erasing the first thought
Instead ponder nurturing what nature has brought

Decomposing in our eternal present
That you reminisce about
In the future-tense with your past-mouth
The slaughtering of sacred cows
In a sea of flames, they all drown
Would I dare seek out your guidance now?

No!
