[Verse 1]
I heard the passing bells calling out my name
I knew I’d never see another day
I couldn’t swim against the tides of blame
I knew there was no other way

[Pre-Chorus]
You better practice your lines
You better practice your words
I know that real monsters lie
Between the light and the shade
It doesn’t matter what you say or feel
When honest men become deranged
They’ll genuflect to a lie

[Chorus]
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
(To a lie)
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat
(They’ll genuflect to a lie)
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
(To a lie)
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat
(They’ll genuflect to a lie)

[Verse 2]
I saw the dagger eyes staring back at me
I knew I’d never have a chance to plead
Guilty, but in the sight of fallen men
They bury you before you speak
(The sin and the sentence)

[Pre-Chorus]
You better practice your lines
You better practice your words
I know that real monsters lie
Between the light and the shade
It doesn’t matter what you say or feel
When honest men become deranged
They’ll genuflect to a lie

[Chorus]
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
(To a lie)
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat
(They’ll genuflect to a lie)
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
(To a lie)
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat
(They’ll genuflect to a lie)

[Bridge]
Beware those who speak in tongues
For they may call your name
You condemn me
‘Cause you don’t understand me
You condemn me
‘Cause you don’t understand me

[Pre-Chorus]
They’ll genuflect to a lie

[Chorus]
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
(To a lie)
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat
(They’ll genuflect to a lie)
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
(To a lie)
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat
(They’ll genuflect to a lie)

[Bridge]
Beware those who speak in tongues
For they may call your name
You condemn me
Cause you don’t understand me
You condemn me
Cause you don’t understand me
You condemn me
Cause you don’t understand me
You condemn me
Cause you don’t understand me

Fuck!

[Outro]
The sin and the sentence
Penance in the fire
The sin and the sentence
The flames grip your throat

I’ve been waiting here on the outside
I’ve been watching you from afar

The color of your fear
Confusion deep inside
Resentment boils over
In me you can confide

You say you’ve lost your world
You say you’ve lost your faith
I’ll be the shelter in the dark
Clothe you in my hate

Profiteers and preachers
Sycophants and leachers

The Revanchist – his thoughts become mine
How deep they become intertwined
He said
Submit for salvation
Submit for salvation
The age old lie

Submit for salvation

I’ve been calling you from the twilight
I’ve been pushing you to the edge

The way you say my name
The poison on your tongue
The lies they tell – pay no mind
I am the only one

You never turned your back
You didn’t need to see
‘Cause even in the dead of night
You found your way to me

Profiteers and preachers
Sycophants and leachers

The Revanchist – his thoughts become mine
How deep they become intertwined
He said
Submit for salvation
Submit for salvation
The age old lie

Submit for salvation

I’ve been waiting here on the outside
I’ve been watching you from afar

The color of your fear
Confusion deep inside
Resentment boils over
In me, you can confide

You say you’ve lost your world
You say you’ve lost your faith
I’ll be the shelter in the dark
Clothe you in my hate

Profiteers and preachers
Sycophants and leachers

The Revanchist – his thoughts become mine
How deep they become intertwined
He said
Submit for salvation
Submit for salvation
The age old lie

He said
Submit for salvation
Submit for salvation
The age old lie

Submit for salvation

What will it take
What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate

It’s easy to be right
When everything repeats
It’s easier to cut us down and point at our defeat
It’s easy to be right
When everything repeats
Dig below the surface, find your insecurities

Tell me
Maybe you were right
Maybe I was wrong
But I’ve been silent for far too long
Maybe you were right
Maybe I should go
But I’ve been silent for far too long

What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate
What will it take
What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate

To rip the heart from your hate
To rip the heart from your hate

You always walk away
Soon you’ll have to face it
Your distance from reality won’t bury or erase it
I tried to do the same
Living so complacent
But the problems wouldn’t go away
So I turned around to face them

Tell me
Maybe you were right
Maybe I was wrong
But I’ve been silent for far too long
Maybe you were right
Maybe I should go
But I’ve been silent for far too long

What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate
What will it take
What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate

Maybe you were right
Maybe I was wrong
But I’ve been silent for far too long

What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate
What will it take
What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate

What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate
What will it take
What will it take
To rip the heart from your hate

To rip the heart from your hate
To rip the heart from your hate

Liturgies and prophecies
They mean nothing to me
I believe in substance
Not the patterns that you see

Life burns me alive
Life burns me alive

Straws you grip so tightly
Now becoming your own noose
Story collapsing, ask yourself
Can you hang from your own truth?

Life burns me alive
Life burns me alive

Sever the hand
Of any god or man
Sever the hand
To free yourself again
Free yourself again

Sever the hand
Of any god or man
Sever the hand
To free yourself again
Free yourself again

Mindlessly crawling
You’re choked by a leash
Seeking redemption
You practice and preach

Cognitive failure
Your sickness reveals
The horror and panic
Exposing what’s real

Life burns me alive
Life burns me alive

Sever the hand
Of any god or man
Sever the hand
To free yourself again
Free yourself again

Sever the hand
Of any god or man
Sever the hand
To free yourself again
Free yourself again

[Intro]
We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
No other
We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
No other

Is there hope
To break through
All the walls
Built around you?

You’re like a song within a nightmare
A thought within a scream

Dim the world
A glassy stare
Face to face now
Do you even care to try to understand
Where we went wrong
Or how it seems

We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
‘Cause we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds

We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
‘Cause we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds

Broken mast
Shipwrecked mind
Future sinks
By design

You’re like a song within a nightmare
A thought within a scream

Lost our minds
Lost our way
Face to face now
Do you even care to try to understand
Where we went wrong
Or how it seems

We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
‘Cause we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds

We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
‘Cause we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds

Someone wake me from this nightmare
I can’t even tell what’s real

Someone wake me from this nightmare
I can’t even tell what’s real

We’re dreaming in color
But we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds

We’re dreaming in color
But we’re living in other worlds
We’ve lost our way in the other worlds

We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
‘Cause we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds

We’re dreaming in color
Believing no other
‘Cause we’re living in other worlds
Breathing in other worlds
