Tantalus (feat. Jared Ipsen)

lyrics

Witness, the end is in sight
Put up your walls and leave the remainder to die

We numbed our hearts and called it freedom
Closed our eyes behind stone walls
We prayed our hate would save us
Hate has betrayed us
Cut out our eyes and enslaved us

Strain your senses to the cipher of tantalus
There’s a rift in us, the division is killing us
Mind separates from heart and in time, the heart won’t pulse
As the mind conceives what it’s relinquished

I’m standing at the end of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What can we do to remember all we’ve lost in apathy?
I’m standing at the edge of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What can we do to remember all we’ve lost in apathy?

What does it mean to truly be free, free to wander this ancient valley?
Each twisting path bears a legacy
We did not carve on our own
Each step you’ll never walk alone
So tell yourself you’re more deserving than them
Wallow in hatred to distract from the hate of self, see what you want to see
Do anything to believe you’re free despite the noose around your neck

At the seeping core of this paralysis
There’s a wound in us, indecision is killing us
Mind separates from heart

I’m standing at the end of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What can we do to remember all we’ve lost in apathy?
I’m standing at the edge of this collapse
Waiting for the chance to pull back from the embers
What will it take to remind us of our lost humanity?

And to think the bliss we had was never enough
Will we ever forget about our pride and start again?

We’re still so guarded at the end
Will we ever forget about our pride and start again?

And to think we never dared to take a stand
Shame on us, shame on you
By now we know we won’t pull back from the embers
All we can do is lament how cheap we sold humanity

I’m stranded in the depths of defeat

No way out this time
This fragile state of mind rewinds and in the end there’s nothing left to say
There’s no release from this, the truth can’t be forgotten
I’m stranded in the depths of defeat
This fragile state of mind rewinds and in the end there’s nothing left to say
There’s no release from this, the truth can’t be forgotten, the world is stained
I’m drowning in the depths of defeat
