capstan (post-hardcore) – reprieve lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
is there a place up in heaven where they store the world’s debris?
i swear i’m not a wicked person; is there a wasteland for me?
am i scared? i’m f-cking terrified, these thoughts eat me alive
(from the inside)

[interlude (sampled from the fountain)]
our bodies are prisons for our souls. our skin and blood, the iron bars of confinement. but fear not. all flesh decays. death turns all to ash. and thus, death frees every soul

[verse 2]
is there a church down in hell where the addicts go to meet?
seeking shelter from their demons, trading shame for amnesty?
am i scared? i’m f-cking terrified, these thoughts eat me alive
from the inside

[chorus x2]
i am a liar, i am a sinner
i am the furthest from the grace that my parents made
i’m reminded of it every single day
(i am the snake, i am the snare
who’s beats of my own heart’s what kept me marching
with no legs to get me there.)

we’re all liars, living sinners
now the furthest from the grace that our parents made
it won’t define me in any way
(are you awake, are you aware?
we’re all walking cadavers with faith that’s faulted to despair)
