About "The Scourge" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"The Scourge" by Dividium, which consists of 6 songs.
Laying ourselves open wide,
Like a carcass on a leash,
To your hungry, preying eyes.
Most of this has past it's prime,
Convoluted with disdain,
Saturated, lost in time.
Why don't you go out of your way?
No complications can remain.
Nothing here ever feels the same.
I pass the torch and take your hand,
The taste of blood,
It lingers still.
A detrimental circumstance,
That creeps around my veins until,
Your words pollute my mind and still,
We run with knives and crave the thrill.
As the profane stays to see the end of all they survey,
Every image that I strive to show you fades away,
Though it leaves me dead inside, just an empty husk,
Like a contour on a map to our own demise,
Cataracts on the mind's eye, leaves me blind but...
Hallowed thoughts and golden visions burning through my brain,
Every moment of your life like ashes in the wind.
Time takes it's toll while the words turn stagnant and the pattern shifts,
Out of place leaving embers where a flame once burned bright.
Words that bleach the pictures of our memories,
Faded at the edges, diminished secretly.
Running the path I feared to tread,
Forcing myself through the days ahead.
Stand on the words of the wise,
Lost in this cold web of lies.
The wires that held me still hold me now,
The failures of my past remind me how.
Game Of Chance
A game of chance, another way,
Left with false hope and disarray.
A broken shadow.
Retribution: its purest form,
Retaliation: a bleeding sore,
I won’t wait to take,
I won’t wait to take my chance.
Throat Of The World
Just take a look around and see the seeds of discontent,
That we've sown too deep to dig out from beneath the skin.
We stab each other in the back,
To succeed in this game that's too easy to lose.
The last time we throw the dice and pull the hammer back,
Our aces high but the risks are higher.
Show your smile; it's time, so open wide,
And let me shovel down the same old shit you feed us every day.
