about

Just a demo version I put together today.

lyrics

Entangled in cacophonous wires -
Ill-inspired to command and control at a panel of sliders
Silent, unseen, raising these paltry masters of men
that disavow, deny the sweat on our brow.
Their fingers pry and intrude in our mouth, turn us back to the plow
a push of the wheel, forbid us to feel,
keep you tired and pliant to the will

Pitted in circles of hate, blood runs like ore,
thicker than the water we keep silent for.
Immaculate sores, invisible doors
ensuring our focus is never towards
those who cover our face, as they drive us away, those who govern our faith -

Don't you ask me to pray when you've cut out my eyes, ripped out my tongue, and cast me aside
Don't you beckon me kneel in puddles of blood that drip from the wheel you bound and you broke me upon
You despise anything free - you rip from the soil and peddle at price
You despicable lice, burrow inside and command me to die.

Don't command me to die.
