They rise from ancient ruins
They lust, they crave, they gather at the sky
Like the mighty roar of thunder in the distance
Like a thundercloud they subjugate the light
As you look inward you sense damnation in the air
Slowly you raise your eyes towards the trembling sky

Like a swarm of locusts they ́re pouring down on you,
destroy the harvest of your life,
take everything you love

And as you ́re entering this cruel dance, dead bodies falling to the floor
You crush one hundred, crush one thousand, but there will rise one million more
And as you ́re sinking down to the bloodsoaked ground,
among this ocean of corpses you realize that they nest inside of you
They nest inside of you
A seed was planted into a young chest
No one understood the breed behind the curtains of a polite restrained smile
Now all that ́s left are ancient ruins
Inside this crippled shape of a dying heart they will hatch and rise and crave for everything you love Take everything you love
