LYRICS

Privileged, a chosen few
Blessed with our time in hell
Witness a divine vision
The day we all fell still

Rapture of the dying age
A shattered hourglass
Wrath of the warring gods
And so this too shall pass

It's only getting worse
Not worth a moment's regret
Each dawn another curse
Every breath a twisting blade
What will be left behind
In the ashes of the wake?

An ill wind blows this way
The edge of the envelope burns
Forbearance and my vengeance
Payment for your intent

Fear, death in the wings
In thrall of those fallen from grace
Petty is as petty does
Witness the mass disgrace

Fear, death in the wings
In thrall of those fallen from grace
Petty is as petty does
Witness the mass disgrace

God forbid you read the signs
Watch for meanings between the lines
Gehenna has now arrived
No hindsight for the blind

Your trust has been misplaced
Believed the lies told to your face
Became another casualty
And now it's too late

You finally made it home
Draped in the flag that you fell for
And so it goes
The ashes of the wake

It's only getting worse, it's only getting worse
It's only getting worse, it's only getting worse
It's only getting worse
