You Always Said [Nihilist]

Lining the trenches,
I lie down low with covered head
My rifle aimed at you instead
So drop / Just stop

White picket fences,
Charred with fires of a thousand wars
Your eyes turned downward to a floor
Of lies / This time...

Paper knives / digging in
At the end / We begin
Our story, not one word, only pain
I'll read it out to no one again

You always said
'Keep your feet on the ground'
But how can you ask me
When I have blood to bleed?
You always said
'Life is nothing but trials'
But how can that be
When you're only alive through me?

Cutting down trees,
They drown out your hacksaw scream
And it seems wherever I stand
They fall / On me

Paper knives / digging in
At the end / We begin
Our story, not one hope, only doubt
I'll read it now, without you

You always said
'Keep your feet on the ground'
But how can you ask me
When I have blood to bleed?
You always said
'Life is nothing but trials'
But how can that be
When you're only alive through me?

Your own destruction
Cannot be complete without me
Your infatuation
Will never allow you to cease

Well I've had enough
Please... I've had enough
Love is a living thing
But not for me
'Cause you've been dead since the beginning!

You always said
'Keep your feet on the ground'
But how can you ask me
When I have blood to bleed?
You always said
'Life is nothing but trials'
But how can that be
When you're only alive through me?

The End
