The Timekeeper

by Agony By Default

Lies and betrayal it seems Is the way of the world, and the reason I bleed Life has no meaning to me; Never again will I beg on my knees. Lost and alone as I walk down this road The trials I face make me heartless and cold. Lessons I've learned breed darkness and hate; This old, vicious cycle seals my own fate. I won't believe in this dark fairy tale I won't succumb to this bleak fucking hell I won't consume all your force-fed, thin lies I will devour the light in your eyes. I will breed hate. I'll make sure there's no escape. I won't break; I'll feed the hate. I won't break; you'll suffocate. You'll suffocate. Fire is best fed with gasoline It's the way of the world and way that I feed. Your lies have no meaning to me; I'll watch you burn as you beg on your knees Lies and betrayal it seems Is the way of the world, and the reason I bleed Life has no meaning to me; Never again will I beg on my knees. Beg on your knees.
The walls crumble in time The hatred of this world burns deep inside All hope is lost, this battle I've fought My will has been broken, but still I march on Empty inside as I contemplate lies The end of the road; a mirage, a disguise. When will this end? When will this end? Wander in time Contemplate the end of this life. Not this time I can't see the end of the line. Where do we find the will to survive? I can't go on.
Arbitor 03:23
I am the one who lays you to sleep I am one whose promise you keep I am the god who brings your demise I am the dark who feeds you these lies One day you'll bow to me When this life brings you to your knees You'll lose control to the powers that be I am your will, you will break before me. Bow down to me. Bow down to me.
Time erodes the signs Time breaks us down inside Time is our enemy. There's no escape as the moments they pass The Timekeeper comes to rob us of our past Our bones become brittle and the ones we love die As we race to give meaning to our crumbling lives The Timekeeper comes. He comes for us. Time is our enemy. Time is our enemy.
