lyrics

Creation of creation
With subordinate expressions
Mutiny beneath his nations
Daggers hidden inside vestments
He'll testify as witness to the blistering innocence

In the path of least resistance
One man stands with stone desire
Close to his primal insistence
One man draws, and one man fires
Taken faceless and nameless
The faithless and blameless

Staring deep into a set of empty eyes
Contemplating automatic action
Sacrifice the orchestrated saline pawns
Immolate the mutilated tower

Shadow armaments of favor
Trigger primed beneath his fingers
Futility of empty chambers
Demise by replicas of neighbors
A shallow victory of reflex
Euphoria preceded sorrow
Void of consequence or defect
Left with no orders to follow
Canyons of contempt
Between the Admiral's last attempt

A hail of curses twist around a fallen god
A crowd of soldiers desecrate the body
One by one, the rage begins to self-sustain
Livid calculations for the future
Gloria!
