lyrics

I'll always return here
When I have lost my way
Harbinger of your delight
Fantastic opera plays in my mind

The curtain splits –
final call to all actors
Tighten their belts and build up confidence
Enter the gorgeous egg-shaped chapel of eyes

Weaving canvas into clay
Speaking of what we became

Writing our - own – epilogue
Dividing – a universe
The peace begets destruction
The horror was never a lie

Wandering
Summoning
A new form
Of thinking
Realized
Devastate
Court of eyes
judging me

I'm a hate
designate
What you do
When you choose
To misguide
For the sake
of the state
Miserable

I'll always return here
When I have lost my way
Harbinger of your delight
Fantastic opera plays in my mind

Born asleep
Die awake

Watch as they use and abuse and destroy themselves
Watch as they hurt and desert and defile the youth
Watch as they run and mistrust and they learn so slow
Hear as they cry and then die and then turn their backs

Watch as they hang and they shoot and they throw it all
Into the dirt in the earth and they mourn the loss
Of the things they deserved as they squandered
This is the court - the court - the court of eyes
