She's a killer
She's a keeper
I'm all blurry
In your vision
Was I just a poor decision?

Cut me open with precision
And we'll finger the incision
Tell me what I have done
((Quid pro quo))
To watch you lose control

I will give you sanctuary
In these times of Thanatos
I will give you sanctuary
You want to see me burn
I am living fire
You want to see me burn
I am living fire

You will know me by the scars I bear
You will know me by the hate I swear
You will know me by the scars I bear
Shameless vultures

We are the thousand children of death
We're in between; on the fence
Nondescript antagonist
I'm in between; on the fence
Nondescript antagonist

I'll split you open,
Climb inside,
Lose my sight
And I lie

We are the thousand children of death
From the seraphim
To Nephilim
Dance with ghosts

She's picking ghostflowers from her soul
She's clipping the wings of fallen angels
She's picking ghostflowers from her soul
She's tonguing splinters of broken halos

You will know me by the scars I bear
You will know me by the hate I swear
You will know me from the scars I bear
You will know me

From chosen
To specimen
To emptiness
I will be avenged
I will be avenged

These are the secrets
They kill (x7)

We are the thousand children of death.

    Okay i changed my mind. This song is about the countless children who've been abandoned, abused, or killed before they even lived (abortion). All the lives that could have been and now can never be.

    Abortion or killing/abandoning the baby.

    A few things: Its not "In these times of Thanatos". its depths, not times. some people say hymns tho...

    Im pretty sure "shameless vultures" is something like "shameless vengenace"

    "Dance with ghosts" is "Exodus" (for sure).

    "From chosen" is "From gelatin" which makes more sense cause gelatin is like the filmy white clear stuff wrapped around the baby/fetus/whatever (probably not gelatin but looks like it), to specimen (a living breathing human thing blah blah), and then the killed/abandoned/depressed person "to emptiness".

    Capiche?
