  1. Into the Abattoir

From the album Ascending the Monolith

Lyrics

Next to the life I live there is a shadow world
Batons of cruelty passed from hand to hand
Cut to the left fly to the right
You cannot escape the maze you cannot escape the blade
Cut to the left fly to be right
You cannot escape the gaze you cannot escape his blade

Your hunger is the reason why I die
Gluttons fill their taste for life blind to the grind and tears
Do not sigh the time to cry is when the laughter that fills the air
Poisoning the well from which we all must drink or surely die

Your hunger is the reason why I die tonight in this shadow world
Poisoning the well from which we all must drink or surely die
All my dreams all my dashing hopes
Pull me down so I can drown in desire

Harvesting no ill will I move into a field of rage
Counting all the ageless songs we all sing when our time is done
Close to me giver of my life
Same will burn, cut and kill in spite

Time after time we held each other embracing truth
Darkened our hearts without emotion lust bleeds thru
And now I see in this brief moment a calling to
Calling to run and from pretending I'll take my due

One by one we're still going down
To where we can hide from mortality

Time after time we held each other embracing truth
Darkened our hearts without emotion lust bleeds thru
And now I see in this brief moment a calling to
Calling to run and from pretending I'll take my due
