lyrics

This shall be the end if fear
Take a good look and smash the fucking mirror
Piece by piece we'll tear it all apart
Then rebuild it all from the start
Insignificant and lost to the eyes
Stripped away and deprived of the disguise
Disenchanted youth swept beneath a rug
Put in place to live amongst the bugs

We'll never survive
The title wave
They've waxed our wings
So we can't fly away

Covered in termites
Thousands crawling across my skin
Covered in termites
Somehow I've become their king
Covered in termites
Creeping and writhing from within
Covered in termites
And I am now their king

Disenthralled and stuck down below
Led to slaughter but no one will ever know
Subject of presence sponsored fear
Take your face and smash it against the mirror
Constant regress of fear
Transparency staring in the mirror
A great darkness is looming near
Sky is swallowed as it disappears

We'll never survive
The title wave
They've waxed our wings
So we can't fly away

Covered in termites
Thousands crawling across my skin
Covered in termites
Somehow I've become their king
Covered in termites
Creeping and writhing from within
Covered in termites
And I am now their king

This shall be the end if fear
Take a good look and smash the fucking mirror
Piece by piece we'll tear it all apart
Then rebuild it all from the start
Insignificant and lost to the eyes
Stripped away and deprived of the disguise
Disenchanted youth swept beneath a rug
Put in place to live amongst the bugs

We'll never survive
The title wave
They've waxed our wings
So we can't fly away

Covered in termites
Thousands crawling across my skin
Covered in termites
Somehow I've become their king
Covered in termites
Creeping and writhing from within
Covered in termites
And I am now their king
