I did my time and I want out, so effusive
Fate, it doesn't cut, the soul is not so vibrant
The reckoning, the sickening
Packaging, subversion, pseudo-sacrosanct, perversion

Go drill your deserts, go dig you graves
Then fill your mouth with all the money you will save
Sinking in, getting smaller again
I'm done, it has begun, I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial
Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial

Oh, there are cracks in the road we lay
But where the temple fell, the secrets have gone mad
This is nothing new but when we killed it all
The hate was all we had

Who needs another mess, we could start over
Just look me in the eyes and say I'm wrong
Now there's only emptiness venomous insipid
I think we're done, I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial
Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial

The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!

Fake anti-fascist lie
(Psychosocial)
I tried to tell you but
(Psychosocial)
Your purple hearts are giving out
(Psychosocial)

Can't stop a killing idea
(Psychosocial)
If it's hunting season
(Psychosocial)
Is this what you want?
(Psychosocial)
I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!

    I did my time, and I want out
    So effusive
    Fade
    It doesn't cut,
    The soul is not so vibrant
    The reckoning, the sickening
    Packaging subversion
    Pseudo-sacred sanct perversion
    Go drill your deserts,
    Go dig your graves
    Then fill your mouth
    With all the money you will save
    Sinking in, getting smaller again
    Im done, it has begun
    I'm not the only one

    And the rain will kill us all,
    Throw ourselves against the wall
    But no one else can see,
    The preservation of the martyr in me

    Oh, there are cracks, in the road we laid
    But where the temple fell,
    The secrets have gone mad!
    This is nothing new,
    But when we kill it all,
    The hate was all we had!
    Who needs another mess?
    We could start over!
    Just look me in the eyes
    And say I'm wrong
    Now there's only emptiness...
    Venomous, insipid!
    I think we're done
    I'm not the only one!

    And the rain will kill us all,
    Throw ourselves against the wall
    But no one else can see,
    The preservation of the martyr in me

    I did my time and I want out
    So effusive - Fade - It doesn't cut
    The soul is not so vibrant
    The reckoning - The sickening
    Packaging subversion
    Pseudo sacrosanct perversion
    Go drill your deserts - Go dig your graves
    Then fill your mouth with all the money you will save
    Sinking in - getting smaller again
    I'm Done! It has begun - I'm not the only one!

    [Chorus:]
    And the rain will kill us all...
    We threw ourselves against the wall
    But no one else can see
    The preservation of the martyr in me

    Psychosocial! X6

    There are cracks in the road we laid
    But where the temple fell
    The secrets have gone mad
    This is nothing new, but when we killed it all
    The hate was all we had
    Who needs another mess?
    We could start over
    Just look me in the eyes and say I'm wrong
    Now theres only emptiness
    Venomous, Insipid
    I think we're done - I'm not the only one!

    [Chorus]

    THE LIMIT'S OF THE DEAD!x4

    Fake and a Fascist lie
    I tried to tell you first
    Your purple hearts are giving out

    Can't stop a killing idea
    If it's hunting season
    Is this what you want?
    I'm not the only one!

    {CHORUS}

    The limit's of the dead...x2
