Guest appearance from CJ McMahon of Thy Art is Murder.


Burn this torch brighter
Than the hearts and minds of humankind
And let it enlighten us all.
These words ring true.
Stars speak to you in a thousand tongues.
Hear the voice unsung.
And as you fade away,
Will you have claimed to live for today
And champion reason?
Or will you state that the life you lead
Was only to please a being
On another plane?
And so they say,

Won't someone give me
A little reassurance that it's not
All for nothing?
I've lost my faith in mankind.
I've lost my will to exist.
Please tell me there is something
Greater, greater than this?

But would you believe them?
Could you say that we'd succeeded
In defeating all the demons
That keep us from reaching our full potential?
I'll wage war with death
Because I know I'm not ready to die yet.
There is no grand design.
The future's yours and mine but still they cry.

I'll wage war with death
Because I know I'm not ready to die yet.
There is no great divine.
The future is yours and mine but still they cry.

We are all born to die
And there is nothing we can do.

Death's coming for you
And there is nothing you can do.
We are all born to die.
