lyrics

you kneel and pray to the minds of men/to the kingdoms forged/the monuments/kneel to every cross in their hands/for loyalty to crowns and kings/you'd sacrifice your entire being/and offer the light that you bare with hopeful open hands/but then a light within reveals a shape you've never seen/that jars you until you fall away from yourself/it's compelling and sounds of harmony/start to cut between every single solitary space inside everything/it's beautiful/the omnipresent harmony/when it cuts inside your mind and stays/never should you waste a single ounce of what it gives to you/the life/the death/the ecstasy/the sacrifice/the light/the shame/it jars you until you fall away/from everything/there's too much pain/there's too much love/there's too much rage/to navigate/now we're forced to wade through what we've seen/to navigate/to navigate/to navigate/while tied to the weights of memories/what's locked within the minds of men/will overwhelm us all
