A Plea For Purging - Shiver

PAROLE - source : Bands On Fire
Cheap steps make for easy regrets, but keep your words of contempt. You are no friend, my enemy, you tear me down, keep me weak. I wear no crown of weakness, His is no crown of weakness. I wear no crown of weakness, hide in your own contempt. Iron sharpens iron, but your judgment's dulling me. I answer to no man. You're no gods or masters of this world. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm damned. I pray I don't wake up in hell. If I were God we'd all be dead. If I were God we'd all be dead... We're all dead. The devil's hands have been busy. The devil's hands have been busy. Grace sustains, but I thirst for revenge. The world would be destroyed if I were God. Demons are fallen angels. Remember that when you think you're a saint. Demons are fallen angels. Remember that when you think you're a saint. Fallen angels, I'm coming for your wings. Fallen angels, I'll cut off your wings. If I were God we'd all be dead. If I were God we'd all be dead. Lord knows I'm a cynic, but I won't give up, won't give in. Lord knows I'm a cynic, but I won't give up without a fight. The devil's hands have been busy, turning liars to masters, demons to gods. But we're no gods, we're no masters. We're only fallen angels in this world.

This was one of the first sets of lyrics I wrote for the album. It really was just sort of a journal entry to myself. We had caught some bad flack for something completely stupid. I was just pissed at the world. All I could think about was that we're all in this world together, and it's really hard to get through it alone. We're supposed to be strengthening each other, but most of the time, I just feel pulled down by those that put me under a microscope. That's no way to share this world. All I could think was, "If I were God, I'd wipe the earth clean. If everyone had pissed all over everything I gave them with their own selfishness, I wouldn't have grace for them." Good thing I'm not God, huh?
