lyrics

An earth
filled and subdued
lifeless sea
empty sky
Eden devoured
by billions of choking apes
a dominion of blight
left in the footsteps of christ

We were left lost, scared
and dispossessed
tumbling, erratic, and ghostlike
guilty and directionless

Eons of artifice
a hemorrhage collapse
thy will be damned
on earth as it is in heaven

And so we reel in defeat
(thy will be damned)
kneel down
forsaken, exhausted, and bereaved.
(thy will...)

The body of christ
crushed underneath the weight
(I forfeit nothing to your feeble god)
sung in a language older than words
the great temple reclaimed
(I forfeit nothing to your god)

Sigh of oppressed creatures
heart of a heartless world

I forfeit nothing (to your feeble god)
I forfeit nothing
