lyrics

These Murky oceans welcome their woes
We're drowning with the weight of this gold
Heavy metals war
Phosphorous glows
Starlights of our lives burning our souls
Antlers locked for the World and water
Thirsting for this war and Slaughter
No one survives passing by
We're passing by
Passers by passing by, can't look into their eyes
Or hear the warnings in the words that they cry
But I can see them fastly approaching
And they're riding trojan horses
I can feel it waking breathing
It's a fine wine that they've been accustomed to
An ancient brew, a wretched recipe
Brewed in a cauldron as them witches do.

Chorus...

And they're riding Trojan Horses
Thundering hooves charging steeds
Runaway slaves, rabid voices
I can hear them stampeding, fastly approaching
It's spores breeding and I'm berating in it's hateful breath
Look inside beware the gifts it left
Your the apple it's favourite.

Verse 2...

And while I've been waiting for you
I've created so many monsters
I've become one too and I've set them loose
On the prowl looking for you
And while I wait
I keep staring in these mirrors
Reflection blurs smear marks
And I can 't make
Make out what they're trying to say
They're looking at me in a very strange way
I hear secrets in the sounds that they make
Their closing in and suffocating me for their place
So much space
But their closing in and suffocating me for their place.
