Demise

lyrics

I sit here with you
At the end of it all
We speak fondly of our memories
All the trials and tribulations

We knew it had to come
But did it have to be so soon?
We had so much more to give
And so much left to do

With grieving eyes, we watch it all fall apart
We crushed all our hopes and dreams
It seems such a cruel fate
For those who only
Wanted more

We strove for greatness
Yet tore ourselves asunder
This is where we say our goodbyes
And dammit man
I'm gonna miss you

Regret and feelings of guilt
Are washing over me
How many years did I waste?
How much time has past?

The fires scorched these shattered lands
The cries of the damned echo through the valleys
The bodies could feed the wolves for ages
Damnation is an unrelenting mistress

I've come to learn that fate has no remorse
The young, the old
We all face the cold embrace
There is no running away
She lives inside us all

Regret and feelings of guilt
Are washing over me
How many years did I waste?
How much time has past?

Death comes for us all
Death comes for us all
Death comes for us all

The ash covers everything in sight
The smell reaches every crevice
It is nearly our time
So long my friend

There is no writhing
There is no bargaining
I can feel the heat
My flesh, a searing tomb
The flames rage on
Ever closer to us
This is it I can feel it

It's burning us alive
Burning us alive
Burn

We had come so far
From where we once stood
Progress without bounds
We were more than gods
We were more than gods

But we never saw beyond
The potential in our hands
We left our hearts behind
We had become so blind

The fires we had used
To claim whatever we saw fit
They were the fires that would consume us
We brought about our own demise
