  • 1 The Making of Unto the Locust
  • Sweet caress grazes my skin
    It's loveless, these hooks sink in
    Behind an angel's disguise, an insect preys
    Mandibles cut like a knife, the reckoning

    Forming clouds, their shadow shrouds
    Louder the tattered wings they sound
    Descending down

    Down they come, the swarm of locusts
    Skies above converge to choke us
    Feast of souls consume the harvest
    Young and old, suffer unto the locust

    Surrender, these veins are bled
    Devoured, nothing sacred
    Strings pull the marionettes
    See how they dance upon the winds that beget our pestilence

    Forming clouds, their shadow shrouds
    Louder the tattered wings they sound
    Descending down

    Down they come, the swarm of locusts
    Skies above converge to choke us
    Feast of souls consume the harvest
    Young and old, suffer unto the locust

    Bleeding from my eyes, this plague is sent to erase us
    Bleeding from inside, these vermin can't infiltrate us

    Faith appears, and holds a candle
    Hark, the angels sing

    Forming clouds, their shadow shrouds
    Louder the tattered wings they sound

    Tear the veil, the lies derail
    Purity ever will prevail
    Trumpets sound the shattered crown
    Halos of truth now they surround
    The charade comes down

    Down they come, the swarm of locusts
    Skies above converge to choke us
    Feast of souls consume the harvest
    Young and old, (suffer unto the locust)

    Down they come, the swarm of locusts
    Skies above converge to choke us
    Feast of souls consume the harvest
    Young and old, suffer unto the locust
