Circle – Sacrifice lyrics

Black shapes flying through the western sky
No sun, no moon, no stars that shine.
Nothingness that reigns down like a plague
And casts dismay across the land.
What it means I can't profess to know
As armies march off to their death.
Turn your head you can't avoid the view,
Gasping hard for your last breath.

Sacrifice sacrifice
Sacrifice is on tonight
Streets run red, faces white
Those in power have taken flight.
Sacrifice sacrifice
Sacrifice is law tonight
Fear is truth, left is right
Ain't no difference between black and white.

Lawlessness is just a way of life,
Disease is what we all await.
Fires of hell would be welcomed relief
From what man has made himself.
Rats and maggots gnaw on rotting flesh
Flames consume all in their path.
Everything we know is in collapse
Pure darkness belches forth a laugh.

Sacrifice sacrifice
Sacrifice is on tonight
Saw your leaders lose their sight
Saw your mama die of fright
Sacrifice sacrifice
Sacrifice is law tonight
See the flames burning bright
Ain't no difference between wrong and right
