Artifex Pereo – The Pendulum lyrics
[Verse]
Gather the crowd, I've dropped the gavel
Polish the badges and prepare the gallows
There will be serenity here, there will be serenity here
Let it be known who led Nathanial to the rope
Oh son do you realize that you are only an example for the cowards and the thieves?
Show your heart and swing for me
I am the power and you are the convenient sheep
My town is expecting of me like vultures circling their feast

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh Nathanial, you have the audience waiting, you have the audience waiting

[Chorus]
Swing like a pendulum for me
Give up and let go, lead by example, and
Swing like a pendulum for me
Wipe the sin from my hands
I served the consequence to an innocent man

[Outro]
Oh son won't you let me sleep tonight?
You've peeled the lids from my eyes and desecrated my pride
Oh son won't you let me sleep tonight?
You've peeled the lids from my eyes and desecrated my pride
