oh baby it is a blind world

Updated on July 9, 2010

Is the world going blind I can’t tell?

How can heaven on earth burn like hell

To the unsettling soul

Despair is like a black hole

Emptiness makes a puncture through your heart

Cutting all the way through up to your heart

Filled with undesirable distress

Our beloved world has turned into a mess

Cries echo between the seven gates

Yet, received with disgrace by Thee fates

Useless, like worthless feathers

Like a body strung in the open air as it withers

Chorus:

"Mors ultima linea rerum est"   ~~ Death is everything's final limit~~

How come the blade never trembles?

How come the heart never wavers?

How come we sleep with a very clean conscience?

When the blade carries no mercy when it descends?

Cemel Dosce" (Know Thyself) 

The tears wash over the empty hearts, solidified

By hatred, darkness, and despair never unified

Never ever cutting through the pale skin

For man knows no brother, knows no kin

Forcing his brother to kneel in distress

Have we turned our backs on forgiveness?

Or simply have I gone out of my insane mind?

Or have we all turned deaf, mute and blind?

Can you see the children withering like autumn leaves?

Their cries echoing over heartless bitter murky seas

Have we turned out to be demonic abominations?

Shrieking in the cold world of money and damnation

Chorus:

How come the blade never trembles?

How come the heart never wavers?

How come we sleep with a very clean conscience?

When the blade carries no mercy when it descends?

Have we instead had our heart replace by voids?

Leaving us like inhuman, driven by lust like droids?

Plunged with dark emotions showing no mercy

Feeling like scavengers feeding on our so called humanity

When our blade is sunken in blood up to its hilt

So how come we know no shadow of guilt?

ALAS!!~~~

We have learned to look away

And enjoy other’s moments of dismay

As we sunk in life, we have gone astray

When it is time to give our brother a hand

We enjoyed rubbing his face with the dreadful sand

Justifying the ends regardless to the means

Turning into cheat pieces of human fiends

Chorus:

How come the blade never trembles?

How come the heart never wavers?

How come we sleep with a very clean conscience?

When the blade carries no mercy when it descends?

"Bella Detesta Matribus" (War is the Dread of Mothers) 

Have we gone back to our brute animal nature?

Knowing no love no mercy no emotion to nurture?

Have we turned out to be so heartless?

Resulting in a void for a life so meaningless

While leaving our own Kin, own skin unable to speak

Sucking and feeding like parasites on the blood of the weak

How come we never feel guilt

When our blade is drenched  up to its hilt with blood?

And why do we never cover our shameful faces with mud?

Out of shame

Out of blame

Out of disdain

Or out of pain?

Chorus:

How come the blade never trembles?

How come the heart never wavers?

How come we sleep with a very clean conscience?

When the blade carries no mercy when it descends?

Lost in the world of damnation and filthy greed of desire

We have cast our souls willingly into the unforgiving fire
