lyrics

SHEAR

Our existence it is inconsequential
A mere drop in this ocean of time
We could be washed from the face of this Earth
Our history gone in the blink of an eye

We are a virus that has ravaged this place
We won’t stop till the death of our host
The only cure to this disease we’ve created
The extinction of all we know

All that you’ve worked for means nothing
The life you know is a fucking lie
Peel back the world’s silver lining
To witness the extent of the sickness inside

What will you do when our monuments fall
And we are left with a consuming guilt
This utopia built on sand will crumble
And it must be rebuilt

In the end there are two possibilities
That we are alone and we've been left here to die
Or we are not alone in this world,
and both are equally as terrifying

They say you reap what you sow
But ours are seeds of death and destruction
They say you reap what you sow
But ours are seeds of death and destruction

Our existence it is inconsequential
A mere drop in this ocean of time
We could be washed from the face of this Earth
Our history gone in the blink of an eye

We are a virus that has ravaged this place
We won’t stop till the death of our host
The only cure to this disease we’ve created
The extinction of all we know

All that you’ve worked for means nothing
The life you know is a fucking lie
Peel back the world’s silver lining
To witness the extent of the sickness inside

There is nothing left
Our lives and dreams have turned to dust

There is nothing left
Our lives are dust
