Vexatious Cognition - Lyrics

Cursed to walk alone through the abyss
Your feet drag to eternity
Whispers in your ears from left to right
Won't make light of your suffering
Oh! There's no devil for you to blame
The knife that lacerates your back
In the hilt is carved your name

The time has come and gone
To fix the fragmented past
You cut your fingertips
When you touch the broken glass
You jerk awake from the screaming children of the damned
They haunt you every time you become blessed with blackened sand

Fading into black is every hope you ever had of partial sanity
Tortured by the guilt of every lie you ever wrapped around your fantasy
Mind marauded by the memories of every maleficent self-conception
Forced to stare into your lifeless eyes every time you're crossing your reflection

13! 13! Wraps of coil around your throat
Swinging! Swinging! Back and forth as you slowly choke

I won't back down
I won't let you forget
I won't back down
Too stubborn to admit
Your faults, your faults
Are yours alone to bare
Your faults, your faults
Are yours alone

I will sew your mouth shut so you can choke upon your lies
Choke upon your lies

Cursed to walk alone through the abyss
Your feet drag to eternity
Whispers in your ears from left to right
Won't make light of your suffering

I'll abolish your name from any book
Annihilate any memory
Banish you from my dear life
And break the chains to set me free
Set me free

Spiral down through the darkness from which you came
There's no one else to blame, there's no one else

13! 13! Wraps of coil around your throat
Swinging! Swinging! Back and forth as you slowly choke

I won't back down
I won't let you forget
I won't back down
Too stubborn to admit
Your faults, your faults
Are yours alone to bare
Your faults, your faults
Are yours alone
