Eye For An Eye Lyrics

Thy Art Is Murder – Eye For An Eye Lyrics

[Intro]
A mighty flame erupts to the sky
Raining down in ashes
An arctic surge swells to the sand
We mourn as heaven crashes
The child weeps now for the loss of his only brother
Entombed in a shell of ancient stone
Cold and smothered

[Chorus]
Mother Earth
Invoke the bones of all below
Return to the surface anew
To begin again
Drain the oceans, swallow the shores
Burn the forests to the floor
The ruin of man, the Earth endures
There will be nothing more

[Verse 1]
The rabid beast stalks the land
Stole the body from the tomb
Raped the sin into the lamb
Taste the fruit of thy womb
Now all is forsaken, all is undone
Consumed in the fire of the setting sun
The day shall come to pass
As the dark of night falls
The light slips from our grasp
The plight of rapture calls
There's no escape from what we’ve done
The mother's redemption
Reclaim your sons

[Chorus]
Drain the oceans, swallow the shores
Burn the forests to the floor
The ruin of man, the Earth endures
There will be nothing more

[Verse 2]
And so the beast was turned on by the stock
No longer the shepherd, now hunted by the flock
Our blood shall nourish the fields in crimson and rust
Eden to dust

[Pre-Breakdown]
As we destroy ourselves in endless cycles
A patient killer awaits reprisal

[Breakdown]
Eye for an eye
Reprisal
Eye for an eye
Reprisal

[Chorus]
Drain the oceans, swallow the shores
Burn the forests to the floor
The ruin of man, the Earth endures
There will be nothing more
Mother Earth
Invoke the bones of all below
Return to the surface anew
To begin again

[Outro]
In the wind
We fade away
In the tides
Sink and decay
All we were shall be replaced
All we've done shall be erased
Set free the fire in your heart
Mother Earth
Take us back to the start
