Necropolis Lyrics

album: poetry for the poisoned

released on september 10, 2010

 

sunshine, swell life, soak in another day

all that i need is a reason to go

you and i could fly away, we'd go up

and never come back down

from heaven you know

 

wake me, revolve in my wounds

lay down your enemy

on the altar of refined deception

hate me, i'm all over you

reset the harmony

like a fire in the night

 

pushing closer, east side silence

one last warning, west side let all be friends

every nation thank you for putting down your arms

 

"this was the war, to end all wars.

this was the war to save democracy."

 

wake me, like nails in my spine

let's play the tragedy

in the fire of a last temptation

hate me for wasting my time

on commonalities

in the name of self-respect

 

don't wait too long

don't harvest too late

 

may i wish you won't

believe in your fate

 

- solo -

 

wake me, revolve in my wounds

lay down your enemy

(in the fire of a last temptation)

hate me for wasting my time

on commonalities

in this city of the dead
