lyrics

Intro/Verse 1:

I was born in the context of delusion
Just a cradle's gate away from this confusion
Stole a glimpse of fate as I veered towards illusions
Could have been avoided had I ignored your allusions.

Poured liquor into my veins of permafrost
As time spun round me and I felt all of my future lost
Nostalgia hummed your shiver into my heart
Desperation transposed it into finest art.

Pestilence swooped down upon our mighty gods
Forged of fool's gold, and tempered in denial
[We all ache for the one to save us all
Let me tell you, she was born to make us fall.]

Chorus:

Wade through this weakness, and climb out of despair
Reject compromise. Even if you have to crawl, just find your way there.

Verse 2:

From your treasure chest of ignorance I took one of your finest crowns
Wore it on my weary skull, 'til no one was around.
Now why did it not slip off until you practically knocked it from my head?
I looked the other way as you massacred, until I was the next one dead
It never clicked, it never clicked, it never clicked.

Chorus:

Wade through this weakness, and climb out of despair
Reject compromise. Even if you have to crawl, just find your way there.
Rise off your knees and look around; do you see how far you've come?
Come into your own, with the sweat on your brow, you won't live for anyone.

Bridge:

I got sick of burdening all of your pain and fear
When you came, I never felt you near (x2)
A suicidal swan song was becoming
But hearing it ad nauseaum, the effect it became numbing.

Chorus:

Wade through this weakness, and climb out of despair
Reject compromise. Even if you have to crawl, just find your way there.

Outro:
I walk alone again, but that's just fine by me.
The greatest friends are honest thoughts in silent company
Becoming isolation, becoming condemnation
Travel this path, my will my guide, 'til I've found clarity.
