Twelve Foot Ninja – Dig For Bones lyrics
I lie in wait for you,
My enemy eclipsed,
The first and final warning,
A fatal catalyst,
Fire wrapped in clouds,
You've come to send me home,
A falsified ascension,
Thine kingdom come.

The fight,
It blazes on,
Your cause is not my own,
I am not the only one.

You've crossed the Rubicon,
And now you're a dog of war,
And no man's friend,
You've crossed the Rubicon now.

(I recall when we were like each other),
What have you…
(I remember it all),
… done?
(you were closer to me than a brother),
What have you become?

You shed their blood,
In sanctimonious obligation,
Without empathy or thought,
And you held your soul to ransom,
The people made senseless,
Under hail of friendly-fire,
Now they wander the wilderness,
Extinguished by their own decline.

You'll never feel,
You'll never be innocent again.

Dig for bones,
Lick your wounds,
Your reward,
The leash remains,
And come when you're called,
From our command,
Into your grave.

The hypocrisy of your liberty,
Your security for us all,
Insanity please its own defence,
To deter the advance of the law,
You and I,
We're no different,
We originate from the sword,
I didn't want to single you out,
But I'm relentless.
