Gojira – The Axe lyrics

I've been a victim to the blade against myself
Bloodletting all of my soul
Suck in, paralyzed in this vortex
Reduced to silence
In the dark I've lingered too long
This sharpened axe, beam of light
I reach for and I master
Wield against these shadows
It's purpose now revealed in silence
Keep searching, question if this light ends
Now I will strike and dig with precision
Introspective eye, erase the concept
I lost my fears and the notion of time
I healed my sorrow
All boundaries are illusion
When you reach the center light
And reinforce the striking power
By chance you're followed
It's purpose now revealed in silence
Keep searching, question if this light ends
All ghosts dwelling in, inside, in the heart
I see them all, release their shadow
