Sons Of Apathy


A notion cold as the night air
Forms within in my head
Spreads like ink right through my veins
All of our kings are dead
I am not a scholar and I don't believe in fate
Surely as I share your blood will I end up the same?

If there's one thing I have learned
In my short time on this earth
Devotion should be owed not earned
Only you determine what you're worth

We are set free
We are the sons of apathy
Though it's not right
It's all we know
And there's no one left to follow

We are the heirs to empty thrones
And promises unkept
We sit and watch the empire burn with mild disinterest,
But we are not forsaken,
We have a gift worth more than gold
We've been shown how not to live
By gracious kings of old

If there's one thing I have learned
In my short time on this earth
Devotion should be owed not earned
Only you determine what you're worth

We are set free
We are the sons of apathy
Though it's not right
It's all we know
And there's no one left to follow

My father was an oak
The earth moved when he spoke
My father conquered seas
But was not there for me.

My father was an oak
The earth moved when he spoke
My father conquered seas
But was not there for me.

My father was an oak
The earth moved when he spoke
My father conquered seas
But was not there for,
Was not there for me.

We are set free
We are the sons of apathy
Though it's not right
It's all we know
And there's no one left to follow

Crystal Clear

I was told when I was young
That I could one day hold the world right as it spun
Year that was the plan
But now it seems as though
I've made a mess of everything I've ever done

Could I forget it all?
Follow the setting sun...

It's crystal clear to me
That I've been killing time
Nothing's going to stand in my way
No I'm not done,
Even if the sun sets I will start a fire
To change your mind

A scar is just a mark
Not a burden but a start of something new
Even stars in the end fade
Given time coast lines will change so why won't you?

Could I forget it all?
I've lost teeth, failed every test
My broken heart's the only thing of any value I have left

It's crystal clear to me
That I've been killing time
Nothing's going to stand in my way
No I'm not done
Even if the sun sets I will start a fire
To change your mind

You will see me in the dark
Burning brighter than the stars
I defy the motion of the setting sun
I hold my head up high cos I'm still here

Meter & Verse


I carry my mistakes
And she carries them too
When all I see are bruises black
She shows me the blue

I remember the tears in the morning
The dread of the veil gently falling to the floor

I'll never know divinity
So inadequately I carve
In meter and verse
She believes in God
But I believe in her

When my ship has run it's course
She steers me back out to the sea
She won't let me run aground

I've seen the storms she's met, I've seen the tears in secret shed
She sees me as an eagle though I am just a crow
She sees me as a diamond though I'm just a weathered stone

I'll never know divinity, so inadequately I carve
In meter and verse
She believes in God, but I believe in her

I stole a glimpse of you in pain
And I'll take the image to my grave
You look towards the heavens, and I look up to you
I kneel because there are no words, an act will have to do

She believes in God but I believe in...
...no divinity
So inadequately I carve
In meter and verse
She believes in God, but I believe in her.

The Weight Of The World

A continent of doubt
weighs heavy on mind
and how long can my brittle bones bend
before they yield and snap?

I don't wanna know
'cos i'm so scared
it's not gonna get easier than this
'cos it's too much to bare my darling
the weight of the world
I would carry it for you
but please don't ask me to because the
weight of the world
is a burden i can't bear
is a burden I can't bear

Maybe it's gravity
that pulls her to my chest
not the fear that she is the source
of what little strength i've got left

I don't wanna know
'cos i'm so scared,
it's not gonna get easier than this
'cos it's too much to bare my darling
the weight of the world
I would carry it for you
but please don't ask me to because the
weight of the world
is a burden I can't bear

My horizon lies a jagged line
oh I can clearly see
the mountains that i've yet to climb
i'll get there if it kills me

'cos it's too much to bare my darling
the weight of the world
and I would carry it for you
but please don't ask me to because the
weight of the world
is a burden I can't bear
is a burden I can't bear

and I would carry it for you
but please don't ask me to
because the
weight of the world
is a burden I can't bear

D.O.A

I'm always on the run
From all the things I've never done
I can never escape
Fluid in my lungs
I've been treading water for so long

You burn the books you've never read
Because of what you think they said

I'm not dead on arrival
Though I'm up against the ropes
So I'll stare into the darkness
Just to see how deep it goes

Neon and silhouettes
Stare at the light and not yourself
Seems we don't bury our dead
We watch but we don't learn
Entertained but unconcerned
And unaware

You burn the books you've never read
Because of what you think they said

I'm not dead on arrival
Though I'm up against the ropes
So I'll stare into the darkness
Just to see how deep it goes

We're told to watch others live our dreams
So we all sit staring at the screens
The numbing warmth of the neon blue
Can't give me something to hold on to

I'm not dead on arrival
Though I'm up against the ropes
So I'll stare into the darkness
Just to see how deep it goes

Stitches

Every hour is a season
Every minute lasts a day
So I sit here picking stitches
'Cos I find comfort in decay
How I long to fill my lungs

So tell me how does it feel to
Breathe air cold and clean
'Cos I've been living on my knees
Since I was seventeen
Thought I was safe beneath the smoke
But even under cover
I still choke

My wings are clipped but even if they weren't
I've not the guts to fly and leave behind the earth
There's not poetry in my soul
Just a list of lies I've told
And I don't' know how much longer I can hold on

My wings are clipped but even if they weren't
I've not the guts to fly and leave behind the earth
There's not poetry in my soul
Just a list of lies I've told
And I don't' know how much longer I can hold on

My wings are clipped but even if they weren't
I've not the guts to fly and leave behind the earth
There's not poetry in my soul
Just a list of lies I've told
And I don't' know how much longer I can hold

Winter Kiss

Every night I hold a vigil
Is another spent in vain
I never thought I'd find religion, baby
Oh God, save me from this pain

I want to sleep, but I hear voices
(Calling out)
I hear them calling out to me
This winter kiss has left me poisoned
(Left me here)
And I will never be the same again

The devil you know is better than the ghost you don't
So I sit and the scan the frequencies
Watch the falling snow
I'm still searching for a sign
That you're still listening
But the voice I hear is mine
I will let you down, to love me is to drown

I want to sleep, but I hear voices
(Calling out)
I hear them calling out to me
This winter kiss has left me poisoned
(Left me here)
And I will never be the same again

A distress call to one and all
Can you hear me?
Please respond
'Cos I'm searching for another sign of life
But all I hear is white noise...

I want to sleep, but I hear voices
I hear them calling out to me
This winter kiss has left me poisoned
(Left me here)
And I will never be the same again
(Left me here)
And I will never be the same again
(Left me here)
And I will never be the same again

Elements

It's 20 below
But I don't feel the cold any more
Though the elements conspire
To drain me of desire, I move on

I have spent so long searching
Didn't know what I was looking for

I don't know where I've been
Much less to where I'm headed
Led by the impulse
That's embedded in my flesh

I have spent so long searching
Didn't know what I was looking for
So in love with the horizon that I
Didn't see night fall

With every ragged breath
I feel a little more at peace inside
Though the weather rages
No, I'll never hide
It's only in the journey that we're really alive

I have spent so long searching
Didn't know what I was looking for
So in love with the horizon that I
Didn't see night fall

Though the weather rages
No, I'll never hide
It's only in the journey that we're really alive

After The War

I walk these streets with bloodied hands
Looking for the peace I lost
Buried in the sand, we live our lives
On front lines
We are all at war with time

It's what they say, I wouldn't have it any other way
After the war
Nobody comes back the same, when all is said and done
Even though I held no gun
After the war
Nobody feels the same

As long as night still follows day
True are the words all errant fathers say
To love is to lose, but I still refuse to give up hope

It's what they say, I wouldn't have it any other way
After the war
Nobody comes back the same, when all is said and done
Even though I held no gun
After the war
Nobody feels the same

So join me in this pale moonlight
Swear that we won't lose the fight
Dig deeper into the sand, and always swim against the tide
We swear and oath to those who've died
We will never forget

It's what they say, I wouldn't have it any other way
After the war
Nobody comes back the same, when all is said and done
Even though I held no gun
After the war
Nobody feels the same

Nobody feels the same
Nobody feels the same

Endless Grey


The shadow I cast well it weighs more than my soul
It's the only proof that I am here at all

I will cordially invite you
If you promise to accept
Under no uncertain terms
Will you be second best

So unwind this mortal coil with me
'Cos your darkness is a light, to me

All of my colour
Is bleeding away
So now you watch me fade
Into the endless grey
(Into the endless grey)

I keep the inevitable at arm's length
Pushing back with all my strength
But it's not enough

While my heart collapses like old clay
Heed my warning
Stay away

All of my colour
Is bleeding away
So now you watch me fade
Into the endless grey
(Into the endless grey)

All of my colour
Is bleeding away
So now you watch me fade
Into the endless grey

All of my colour
Is bleeding away
So now I walk alone
Into the endless grey
(Into the endless grey)

At The Gates

I see the vultures over head
They're circling for the waking dead
Walking the line
Mile after mile
Seems so much further than I ever thought
Have I lost my way?

So I'll stand at the gates
Screaming "I am not afraid"
But there's no-one listening to me
I know I'm to blame
For my hands amongst the flames
I just want to feel alive

As I stumble down this unlit road
My legs buckle underneath the load
Though it twists and turns
And my muscles burn
I keep going to stop me from thinking
That I've lost my way.

So I'll stand at the gates
Screaming "I am not afraid"
But there's no-one listening to me
I know I'm to blame
For my hands amongst the flames
I just want to feel alive

March on, march on
Until I'm at the gates
March on, march on

So I'll stand at the gates
Screaming "I am not afraid"
But there's no-one listening to me
I know I'm to blame
For my hands amongst the flames
I just want to feel alive
I feel alive

March on, march on
I feel alive
March on, march on
I feel alive
March on, march on
I feel alive
March on, march on

Beneath The Waves

Dearly beloved we are gathered here today
To lament the loss of honesty
To the art of saving face
Of vanity and opacity
A generation lost beneath the waves

Loose lips sink ships
And we're all going down

We're in the throes of vertigo
Higher is impossible
Sink like a stone
Let it all go
Higher is impossible

The oceans rise to break the bow
And I find peace within the sound
Of water rushing in
So bid farewell to all you know
Take your place way down below
We'll sleep beneath the waves

Loose lips sink ships
And we're all going down

We're in the throes of vertigo
Higher is impossible
Sink like a stone
Let it all go
Higher is impossible

Loose lips sink ships
And we're on our way down

So slowly we all drift down
And all our Kings are dead now
