Nothing But Ashes

from by Masquerades

lyrics

A corrosion of soul
The casket that houses
How can you be trusted on the strength of a lie?
Under a rusting, withering satellite
That tears through the space between the skies
A force of wretched design

Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again

Turbulent and sanctified
Ruinous and hated, your creation defiled
Nothing is sacred, infinite remains
As the arching colour moves you to a higher state and
Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again

I fear I’ll be weak forever
Lost in the ending
With this terrible burden
I fear I’ll be weak forever
Lost in the ending
With this terrible burden

Turbulent and sanctified
Ruinous and hated, your creation defiled
Nothing is sacred, infinite remains
As the arching colour moves you to a higher state and
Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again
Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again

Spitting venom in the face of existence
I’ve never wondered why I felt this way
This world was doomed from the start
Imbued with my hatred, I devour the heart
I do not seek the light, I will not fight your war

I will not fight your war

We’re at the mercy of time
And Trapped between the waves of despondency
It will become so clear to you
That you’re watching the end of everything you know

Nothing's ever built to last
Everything you know must come to pass
Nothing's ever built to last

Nothing’s ever built to last
And everything you know must come to pass
'Cos in the end all things must grind to dust
But the virus and bloodlust will never be sated
Until the world consumes this fucking wreckage

You fucking wreckage
