Long ago there were better days, or so they say.
There's no sense living in the past you know it's not for me.
Loviatar has her hand on the world, sweet mother goddess of pain.
Her vengeance passed through the agents of man. Watch our blood fall like rain.

Every time I'm near what I need to feel.
My world is torn away from me by the sound of screaming steel.

The salted Earth is your mother's name. Spit her blood from your mouth.
Broken backs carry Pharaoh's grain. We'll persevere somehow.
In all of time there has never been anyplace to call home.
The land of milk and honey is here where the whip cracks the bone.

Every time you're near what you need to feel.
You're world is torn away from you by the sound of screaming steel.

I don't want to stain anybody's soul.
I just want to remain in complete control.
I don't want my brother's harming me.
I won't bear your stain for eternity.

I can see the stains darkening your soul.
Life will always remain far beyond control.
I won't let my brothers do harm to me.
The sacrifice of shame is our destiny.

Here we are have we come so far when nothing has changed.
Technology will not set us free from the merchants of pain.
Let's wet our hands and raise the black flag. It's time to cut some throats.
In this land we'll let freedom reign. Let's kill the king on his throne.

Every time we're near what we need to feel.
Our world is torn away from us by the sound of screaming…
Every time we're near what we need to feel.
Our world is torn away from us by the sound of screaming…
Sound of screaming…sound of screaming steel.
