Silent Planet – Afterdusk Lyrics

[Verse 1: Garrett Russell]
First the auspices, [1] they came dripping from the sky [2]
Set their course to the coast, black sand blazing in their eyes
We woke and bore witness to a tarnished veil of gold
Tiny corpses line the strand, obsolescence unfolds [3]
Intravenously, hypodermic pipelines seep toxins to the sea Adorning our shores with negligence [4]
Suffocate, immolate - cauterize the surface
Poison dances in the sky

[Pre-Chorus: Garrett Russell]
Walk with me, walk with me and see our colonies
Breeding dystrophy [5]
Can you feel, feel the disconnect resonate
Burn inside your chest?
Palpitating, palpitating pulse
Failing heart, cardiac convulse [6]
The violence we love, it's cyclical
We rise and we fall, it's inevitable [7]

[Chorus: Thomas Freckleton]
Is it fatal? Is the fallout inevitable?
"It was all for nothing" - spiraling out of control

[Interlude: Garrett Russell]
Misdirected decathect [8], both indirect and circumspect
Oh, architect of disconnect; in retrospect, I now suspect

[Verse 2: Garrett Russell]
Trace the hills with your hungry eyes
Witness how, like an orphan's spine
Cities protrude on the horizon line
Greed will rise [9] and carve out the sky, blinding us to the repercussion

[Breakdown: Garrett Russell & Thomas Freckleton]
Pull the blood from the earth [10], leave a grave for your sons [11]
Oil is the ink, fueling missiles like pens [12] - writing oblivion [13]

[Pre-Chorus: Garrett Russell]
Walk with me, walk with me and see our colonies
Breeding dystrophy
Can you feel, feel the disconnect resonate
Burn inside your chest?
Palpitating, palpitating pulse
Failing heart, cardiac convulse
The violence we love, it's cyclical
We rise and we fall, it's inevitable

[Chorus: Garrett Russell & Thomas Freckleton]
Is it fatal? Is the fallout inevitable?
"It was all for nothing" - spiraling out of control
Is it fatal? Is the fallout inevitable?
"It was all for nothing" - spiraling out of control

[Bridge: Garrett Russell]
This violence we love, it's cyclical
We rise and we fall, it's inevitable
The violence we love, it's cyclical
We rose just to fall

[Outro: Garrett Russell]
I followed the harm to the site of infection
The exit wounds where we made our home [14]
We were gorged with the earth and drunk off the seas
And now we die with the taste of decay on our tongues
