all Cave In lyrics

Tear it from the cross, shake it to pieces, scream demon wind into its ears.
I'm not getting an answer. How can you be so fucking real?
Now I turn my back upon this crossbearer, the lesser to me of a figment.
Never am I guided by its wisdom, gentleness, or kindess.
Holy wars, killing in the name of god,
the right to be minimalized under the rule of the unseen greatness.
I cannot bow my head or kneel my figure to a fake symbol.
And yet I dream and walk this earth in free thought for myself,
proving my existence without this form of worship.
So now let me spit upon the cross of your worship,
or kill me in the name of God.
I only understand its hate,
the skin beneath a mask of shallow actions
with a book of superstitions to live by, all living blind.back to top
Have you strayed from the movement?
You're lost in a lie.
Contradiction is my worst fear,
I cannot see how you can block the truth from your ears.
Has it turned from a lifestyle to a fucking trend?
You're too busy feeding your face to realize what you've caused:
pain and suffering to a being as helpless as a baby.
You'll never see it my way until you stop giving into your greed.
Deaf to the truth, blind to reality.
For once, can you take the attention away from your hunger,
look outside yourself and see just what you created?
Pain, and suffering to a being as helpless as a baby.back to top
Tradition is calling its business.
Feeling only real when employed,
dense from sucking on wallets.
It's their pockets you're arresting.
Money is made the maximum...quality, only minimum.
An open chest shows a heart with a branded dollar $ign.
Shut off, shut off.
Wastes my breath opposing, for authority is all that makes this right.
But you're weak in my eyes and this is no price we'll fucking pay.
Your compromise has again capsized in time.
Shutting off income of yours.
There are no masks for your greed.
There is no heart in your conned cash flow to which we take no part.back to top
Reality sets into a heart that wishes to read you lies that sit like an open book.
This must stay open, this must stay clear, this must be said for all to hear.
These are living, breathing beings like us.
Going, gone unaddressed, undeniable.
These are living, breathing beings like us.
They don't look the same on a plate.
Are we still fixable?
Drop the dish that could fill the mouth with meat.
To the floor and I've watched it break.
One thousand pieces of that glass equals one thousand days gone past.
And how has technology brought us any further,
when this society is still stuck in its primitive dietary ways?
Only a death trap for both worlds, tomorrow can't be fixed.
When today's crisis is aborted, stop looking ahead!
Are we still fixable?back to top
Programmed Behind
I think with my eyes cemented to a flickering screen.
A thirty second segment, fragmented.
Programmed behind the masks...
And what do I absorb?
A question never asked.
And I will never be in control of this constant intake of visual attacks.
I cannot take time to process while these images still bombard me.
Say goodbye to the floor beneath me,
there's no way your rope could reach me.
Bite the hand that needs you,
smash the screen that feeds you.
Biting the hand, smashing the screen.
And finally, I slipped out of the satellite's reach,
to come a long way from a corrupt program leech.
I think with my eyes opened and closed at the same time.back to top
To forgive and forget, I live and regret.
Grief speaks its own language;
it forces me to act strong,
but every time i stand up I'm afraid I'll bump my head.
Eyesight in time.
Things seemed easy, only I was building a fence.
And you see in me what I once took action against.
Sever my eyes from this twenty inch screen.
I've finally got what is tangible.
The more I learn about myself, the more I see in me to hate.
Your misconception of perception detains all reasoning.
You're this image of my fears, armed with words that shatter my ears.
I am only I but that won't do.
Not for you, your only you.
Can you see what I've got?
The world is not a tube,
and a brain playing games with television knobs is a steady leak for attention span.
Restore it sooner: unplug the unit.back to top
And how will denial mitigate importance to successful health?
These eyes call it pain,
watching millions of people playing dead to a crook infested industry.
Body spender, legal tender.
And it's a choice to a certain degree,
to the point where I can still breathe.
No mutually exclusive relations for me.
And if you gave attention to the one
and only body that you'll ever have, how would denial mitigate?back to top
Forbearing truth, we wear denial.
Your compassion will be put on trial.
And when stripped of all innocence,
will your actions still commence?
You won't be losing your awareness aytime soon.
Is common sense left in the closet?
A caring mind taking action right away.
Saying, "What will influence you is where you stand."
The truth that I have possessed says,
"How we stand is what I test, "
though you feel entitled to your ignorant opinions.
Evaluate your concerns:
stale assumptions that fill an otherwise vacant mind.
And only lies shall open your eyes.
But when will the world awaken, before it's taken?
Too late for too much.back to top
Ritual Famine
Feed. Kill the needing urge that hangs inside.
Wilted life, a wound in need of nursing.
Self induced hunger.
Forced it down to suppress the gnaw.
Cursed to outlive words with all their rusting rooted fallacies.
Benign. Locked in, powerless in resisting.
I pray to outlive. Hollow I swallow.
Bloodless, lifeless, selfless again.
Never fucking again. Deprived. Denied. Destroy.back to top
Down in the depths.
I am your hell.back to top
