Burn the pyre to our daughters' pain
In the fire there can be no eulogy
Swine and sickness, shrouded in disgrace
Ordained sinners preying on her memory

Cast out of Eden
Her flesh a sacrament
Corrupt, enshrine
Upon an altar of her bones
Confess, betray
The sky is burning red
Renounce, decay
We lie beneath the stones

Salvation's but the gilded door of the abattoir
One by one, all will bleed for her
Our legacy, a world reduced to ash
Souls of black
Barren, diseased
Hide behind the mask

Hunt the vultures
Bring them to their knees
Bind and gag them, waiting for their fall from grace
In the darkness, tear the mask away
Hollow rulers trading their power for decay

Cast out of Eden
Her flesh a sacrament
Corrupt, enshrine
Upon an altar of her bones
Confess, betray
The sky is burning red
Renounce, decay
We drain the chalice

(We) We are the echoes of loss
(Are) In the absence of light
(Dust) Wrought of corruption, unworthy of redemption
(Shadow) Tombstones, an endless grave

Fragments of root and bone
Time becomes our tomb
We are destined to rot eternal
Consumed by a world forsaken
We will not be mourned
