Birdeatsbaby – Feast Of Hammers lyrics

I’m invited to the feast of hammers
Led like cattle to the bride
If you’re dumb or lonely, you can come and join me
But I warn you, you’ll be crucified

I’m invited to the feast of hammers
Sacrificed and happy to be paid
Like dull creatures, they will beg to beat her
And I cannot help but do the same

Do you know what’s needed?
Growing underneath it
If you keep on hammering on

See my sister, she is cold and distant
She’s been hanging from the chandelier
See my brother, he was bled for another
While the milk of kindness hides in here

Now we’re winning, in this game of drowning
And the walls are crumbling to the earth
Soon we’ll see it, and for one sweet minute
We will have some purpose and some worth

And if you listen
You will hear them quicken
You can hear them hammering, hammering on

I am punished divine
I am broken so fine
And my battle is won

Will you count to seven
Will you keep this hidden
Will you keep on hammering, hammering on
