lyrics

the cameras focus
the vacant stare
the awful hiss
of escaping air

serrated knife
severs the head
bleeding out
in violent red

a child’s body
blown apart
held together
in mother’s arms

the hands of God
smeared in shit
a prayer for mercy
a death that’s quick

the temptation to exist
(lower than life)
a universal emptiness
(lower than life)

cities gutted
and left to burn
to be forgotten
the world keeps turning

nature’s indifference
uninterrupted
we’re voyeurs of
our own destruction

no hell below
no heaven above
to radiate
eternal love

God is a sadist
down on your knees
pray for mercy
beg for release

the temptation to exist
(lower than life)
a universal emptiness
(lower than life)
