Scourging at the pillar

Embrace me mother darkness, provides me all my pain
Am I the unforgiven, crawling, suffering again

I walk alone, this blasphemy, is this my fate, this misery?
This vessel is an empty shell, a casing for my living hell

They worship war and violence, because I tread my path
They mock me and insult me and they long for my last breath

-=Chorus=-
You smiled and you opened up your hand
You lied, this is all part of your plan
Covered all in lies, it's your disguise
The soul in you, it slowly dies
This is where I fell, this is your kill
No more control, none more to tell...

Is this a baptism of fire?
Am I really next in line?
Red curtains close on me and the life that's never mine

I fall alone, was led astray, the skies have never looked this gray
An overcast, a bitter past, praying the torture wouldn't last

They worship war and violence, now everyting is set
They mock me and insult me and they long for my last breath

You smiled and you opened up your hand
You lied, this is all part of your plan
Covered all in lies, it's your disguise
The soul in you, it slowly dies
This is where I fell, this is your kill
No more control, none more to tell...

Nothing more to tell...

I'm broke and severed, can I recover?
I suffer so dearly, but your eyes they fear me...
Just leave me be, let me live the way I please
I'd rather slit my throat, because I beg to disagree...

They worship war and violence, the trophy now they claim
They mocked me and insulted me, now this wasteland bears my name...

Bound and gagged, my body bleeds,
Defiant to your ways of bleed
Finality, the price to pay
They will remember me this way...

Remember me this way...
