Lyrics

I spy with an eagle’s eye my common prey - Devour strays
The lines in the skin they were cut by the wind - From horizons
They tell a tale of a time that has fallen behind - And ending soon
A fever in a dream that was split at the seams - Is waking

I confess to my slaughterings - Attest to my wanderings
Selling soul by the daylight - Then stealing it back by night

And so it goes
For what we can’t refuse
The sails took hold
Of winds that tear in two

And through the eyes they tenderize once solid souls - Erode to holes
With tales that they told thought to be the truth - Tall tales abused
The storm outside it can no longer hide - It’ll be here soon
The ones we defend they will turn us all in - Over nothing

I confess to my slaughterings - Attest to my wanderings
Selling soul by the daylight - Then stealing it back by night
I’ve given up on the holy ghost - For all that I wanted most
Like governments that have failed us - To the lives that now jail us

And so it goes
For winds that tear in two
The brave so bold
Can only follow through
