Coheed And Cambria – The Dark Sentencer lyrics
[Prelude]
Know now there is no time
Space between the Well & unknowing
Our story starts there
Well into our future, yet far beyond our past
In a romance between a pair of Unheavenly Creatures

The Five Houses of the Star Supremacy have privatized the detention zones of the galaxy
These planetary prison pits reassembled from the cracked worlds of the Great Crash
Which brings us to our stage
Where the light must learn to love the black
The Dark Sentencer

It begins with them, but ends with me. Their son, Vaxis

[Verse 1]
Here, emotions behold
You've entered a Hell where the Devil is made of gold
Please, don’t run your mouth
The questions before have no place in this haunted house

Reveal your selfish pleasure
One more time run for good measure
In the answer you hold
Time would be better off if our souls had been sold

[Pre-Chorus]
Here, where the light only dies to remember
In a place where the blind truly can see
Hear my voice, dearly departed, I beg on my knees
It’s been my pleasure to serve your disease

[Chorus]
Welcome home (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Shed your skin and expose your bones (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Take my hand (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
And follow us into the black (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
So far that we can’t get back

[Verse 2]
Here, dig me a grave
And toss in the lives that you can’t be bothered to save
With their blood on your hands
You enjoy the sun while you shit in the purest sand

Kiss your lover with that filthy mouth
You fucking monster
Here, as evil now gropes
It’s caught us off guard with its hand reaching for our throats

[Pre-Chorus]
Here, where the light only dies to remember
In a place where the blind truly can see
Hear my voice, dearly departed, I beg on my knees
It’s been my pleasure to serve your disease

[Chorus]
Welcome home (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Shed your skin and expose your bones (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Take my hand (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
And follow us into the black (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
So far that we can’t get back

[Bridge]
There’s no telling when the truth is clear, pay it no mind
Lines were drawn for us, for all sides
In the afterglow, echoes of time unfold
Give me your word, my dear, and promise you won’t let go

(heavily vocoded, indecipherable vocals)

It’s a shame, I fear, for men to start
We walk their lines, all to play the fucking part
A shame, I fear, for men to start
We walk their lines, all to play the fucking part

I fear we’ve got all we had wanted
Close your eyes and believe it didn’t happen
Now shut your mouth beyond your lies
The world knows to stay away from you
In the blood you let run, they march as you lead
We laugh in the sun, maybe that’s all we need

I, and I, and I’m sorry
You can’t escape

[Pre-Chorus]
Here, where the light only dies to remember
A place where the blind truly can see
Hear my voice, dearly departed, I beg on my knees
It’s been my pleasure to serve your disease

[Chorus]
Welcome home (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Shed your skin and expose your bones (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Take my hand (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
And follow us into the black (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
So far that we can’t get back

[Outro]
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Welcome home (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Welcome home (Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
