lyrics

the deadliest one had no gun
fear injection, frayed connection
time enough for troubled dreams
it seems eternity reveals all things

what do you fear when you live forever?
only the limits of your inner strength
the threat of anything good being snuffed out, caged, imprisoned
alone
defenses aligned, in the dawn of another’s sun

you are an asset, they’ll praise you, support you
condemn any who might threaten to expose you, de-throne you
condemn the witch, the brave,
the truth your slave
any one makes you clean, your breath you keep

hero or villain?
strategic perfection, logic encapsulated
partitioned data, corrupted basis
encased inside
your violent methods applied as remedy
to sustain your perpetual memory

tasting fire on autumn leaves
residual lives cast down
indulge to the last, while they burn
blindfolding fates, each in turn

violence
still one does business with
spends time with you
if you were a stranger, they’d hang you

changing history with words
pictures with brush
your sword and blood
with coin and trust
muting sensors while accepting
invitations into their homes
oh, they’ll never know

hero or villain?
strategic perfection, logic encapsulated
partitioned data, corrupted basis
encased inside
your violent methods applied as remedy
to sustain your perpetual memory

eyes too fast, hearts too slow, pride too strong
dominus aeternitas
master of infinity, master of none
