Withdrawal Lyrics

Barren Earth
And so they move
With narrow purpose
A metropolis
Brought to the boil

Rush through the rain
Head down in trenches
Departure, return
And the sum of all is none

A new morning is given me
And I'm not ready
Again the countless paths
I choose them all once more

How long 'till dawn
How long 'till evening
The days hang heavy on each hour

They seem so far gone
In a complex of cages
And the dreaded breakout looms

A new morning is given me
And politely received
Still the countless truths remain
Hidden

Downbound from honest misery
Who could settle for tears alone

No fire
No frost
No flesh to distract
From a light so mindless

How close we kept empathy
Did it serve our intentions well?

No mind
No soul
No will to abstract
From a light so mindless

Downbound from honest misery
Who could settle for tears alone

No fire
No frost
No flesh to distract
From a light so mindless

How close we kept empathy
Did it serve our intentions well?

No mind
No soul
No will to abstract
From a light so mindless
From a light so mindless
