  • 1 The Making of Unto the Locust
  • Lie in this state
    Of perdition
    Never to awake
    It negates
    An admission
    Stricken by fate

    There's no salvation it dwells in your bones
    There's no remission this sickness it owns
    Make love to denial her sober embrace
    Nails they've embedded never to release

    In madness we shall reign
    Down out
    In madness we shall reign

    Hail Mary our divine
    Littered souls across a great divide
    In our obsession thou cast pearls before the swine

    I numb it down
    Heavens fleeting kiss envelops thee
    It surrounds
    So in vain we stab at the beast

    Count the 12 times you step equal 12 times you fail
    No abstination relapse tip the scale
    As you swallow the hook
    And you chew on the line
    Choke on the sinker
    In this sea of lies

    In madness we shall reign

    Hail Mary our divine
    Littered souls across a great divide
    In our obsession thou cast pearls before the swine

    Broke vows and broken rosaries
    Bind these rusted hopeless dreams
    Broke vows and broken rosaries
    Bind these rusted hands in prayer
    Faith trust and love are mowed down lonely
    In these killing fields

    Deep in the throes of addiction
    Now my blood's running black
    My fixation is caught in its clutches
    As the sun sets on my soul
    In endless twilight
    It is eclipsed

    Hail Mary our divine
    Littered souls across a great divide
    In our obsession thou cast pearls before the swine

    Slowly we dance with temptation
    Good intentions are sold
    For the price of fool's gold and sedation
    Take now this demon by its hand
    And slice it off

    Hail Mary our divine
    Littered souls across a great divide
    In our obsession thou cast pearls before the swine

    Take the ache beneath my bones
    Peel the skin away and leave my body exposed
    No grace awaits this broken soul
