it’s a long way up, a short way down
keeps your lips shut, you’ll never be the one to drown
p’seidon will guide you

pawns placed on the front line
masterpiece and destruction
hidden well behind construction
innocents slaved for grand design
dreams embodied meticulously
hides behind his sightless army
corruption’s never seen
encore! rumor falls the guillotine

drifting empires burn so clear
yet fires consume only the insincere
sparing no drop to save what you should
you have oceans vast, and scapegoats of wood

fury unleashed on endeavors of independence

he’d command a truce, but he thinks he’ll lose
throw the tar to sharks, while his fear bleeds through
his true friendship’s never meant
take in water, stay his ship’s descent
lifeline unextended, captain prose concealing sin

carry his anchor, walking depths below, no one knows
watch his changing light, theirs stays true
they’ll take everything and move on without you

inserting himself into all they create
it will haunt him when all is taken
the core was never his alone
it belonged to those who breath love, who love more

drifting empires burn so clear
yet fires consume only the insincere
sparing no drop to save what you should
you have oceans vast, and scapegoats of wood

he wants a siren to call on, but not a siren to call on him
intentions de-masked
oh captain, my…
