Lyrics by TheAmazingAtheist.
www.youtube.com/theamazingatheist He had some lyrics that he wanted me to make a song out of so this is what I came up with. Enjoy.

lyrics

Inevitability, you are my mother
bleeding seeds of sour lust
onto the mounds of bleeding crust
unto all that holy dust
I shall return
bathed in fire

The world is ice
But I'm the spark
That can ignite your world
I can warm you
or I can
BURN
YOU
DOWN

They tied me to the chain link fence
And beat me down--I've no defense
I always knew I'd die in...
I always knew I'd die in...
I always knew...

Impossibility, you are my father
growing limbs of odd proportion
singing psalms of all abortion
speaking truths that are factual
but dishonest
because you cannot tell the difference (no)

The world is dark
But I'm the spark
That lights the path
I can save you
or I can
DAMN
YOUR
SOUL

They tied me to the chain link fence
And beat me down--I've no defense
I always knew I'd die in...
I always knew I'd die in...
I always knew...

Impracticality, you are my brother
Raising flags to stay the army
Arming thugs who wish to harm me
Complying with Spring just to see Winter die
And take me with it

(because . . .)

The world is me
And I'm the dark
There is no life
There is no spark
You've murdered me
Everything I am
I am nothing now
You're just like them

The world is me
And I'm the dark
There is no life
There is no spark
You've murdered me
Everything I am
I am nothing now
You're just like them

The birds are bleeding upsidedown
Their feathers congeal to form my crown
And though I stand here, cruciform
I am no martyr . . .
I will not be reborn

And honestly, I'm glad of it
I can take it as a compliment
And honestly, I'm glad of it
I can take it as a compliment
And honestly, I'm glad of it
I can take it as a compliment

They tied me to the chain link fence
And beat me down--I've no defense
I always knew I'd die in... (kill me now)
I always knew I'd die in the snow (do it slow)
I always knew I'd die in the snow (in the snow)
