about

Progressive metal: It's like progressive rock, only heavier, crazier. This song has energy. It doesn't politely ask for your attention, it demands it, elevating from a intensely raw anger to a celebratory Irish stomp.

lyrics

Had I shed a lasting thread of skin I’d be ok
Pulling through the obstacle of a body in refrain

I’d be safe and sound instead of buried up to my neck in doubt

Call it lies call it coincidence impaired
Feeding through the obvious you won’t feel it coming near

and it will dive so deep into your motor lungs and bring you to an end

On your knees stop following me
You were there to burn till the end
Hand on my heart eyes to the sky
Slipped through my fingers left to die

On your feet stop crawling to me
I am here to prevent the fear

Hand on my heart eyes to the sky
Slipped through my fingers crawling down my spine
Here to remind us there’s no other way under the eyes of the beast and his prey

You will make the same mistake
Falling under a spell in disgrace
you will make the same mistake

The ogre rising to the edge begins to twist and grind you
Still holding on to holding in the end will find you anyway

You will make the same mistake

The dead will come the beast will bite
Feeding them wont hide you
Instead of calling out their name hold your hand over the flame

On your knees stop following me
You were there to burn till the end

Hand on my heart eyes to the sky
Slipped through my fingers crawling down my spine
Here to remind us there’s no other way under the eyes of the beast and his prey

The ogre rising understands fear is thick enough to feel

On your knees
