lyrics

I am a man at the end of a gun and I’m
Building the bullets, what have I become
Give me a chance to explain what I've done here and
You'll understand, there's nowhere we can run

But there's just one plan that no one is saying
Erase my brain, don't hesitate
Do not be kind
But this is my price, my penance paid
And Zero’s hands are clean today
Do not be kind

This is the end of the line for the world we know
Nuclear sunset, this what we have bought
Dealers of death hold all of the cards for now
Just look at what my careless hands have wrought

But there's still one plan that no one's saying
Erase my brain, don't hesitate
Do not be kind
There’s just one failsafe left in place
Destroy my mind don’t leave a trace
Do not be kind

Don’t tell them lies, don’t tell them the truth
Just tell them something in between
I wasn’t built to fall this far
I never meant to dig this deep
Don’t let them take me live again
I’ll never make it in the walls
Just tell my family not to wait
There were my reason, after all

But there's still one plan that no one's saying
Erase my brain, don't hesitate
Do not be kind
This is my price, my penance paid
And Zero's hands are clean today
We don't have time

Don’t tell them lies, don’t tell them the truth
Just tell them something in between
I wasn’t built to fall this far
I never meant to dig this deep
Don’t let them take me live again
I’ll never make it in the walls
Just tell my family not to wait
There were my reason, after all

Shagohod Hartford, Connecticut

We're just a pair of average dudes making the kind of music that comes naturally to us- overwrought, melodramatic leitmotif concept albums about tanks and shit.
