The Acacia Strain ...and Life Is Very Long Lyrics

If I ever had a mind of my own
I'd cut myself a new mouth and bleed you a smile from ear to ear
Ear to ear, to ear
A smile from ear to ear
You're welcome to the real world

Welcome to the real world
Beta version 1.5
Welcome to the real world

"He's more a machine, uh, than man?"
Raised on antiques passed for reality
Spatial incarnate painted with blood
Dredged from the ocean
Never to see daylight again
Our fate is something lesser than life
I saw it in the eyes of the ocean
We say
"We've always been here and we'll never leave."
We will never leave
We will never leave

Expose the wires
Expose the veins
Expose the wires
Expose the veins
Show them what is made by machine
Tools of the tools of the masters design
When you wake up, you will all be slaved
When you wake up, you will all be dead
Tools of the tools of the masters design
When you wake up, you will all be dead
Tools of the tools of the masters design
When you wake up, you will all be dead
Weapons of the weapons of mass destruction
Brilliant minds built by resilient minds
Weapons of the weapons
Refurbishing the fact that the future is futuristic and the future is now
Refurbishing the fact that the future is futuristic and the future is now
Refurbishing
Refurbishing the fact that the future is futuristic and the future is now
Model a life, fate is real, fate is you, fate is built
Model a life, fate is real, fate is you, fate is built
Fate is built
And no one thought it would come to this
No one thought it would come to this
No one ever thought it would come to this
Deconstruct
Deconstruct
Deconstruct
Deconstruct
And they screamed on the way down
The best thing since sliced bread has destroyed everything you've ever known
Everything you've ever known
Their morning is their iron lung
It never stopped raining!
With daggers
Sewn through her heart, she cries
She cries
She cries
Filled with confusion
She cries
She cries
She cries
Filled with confusion, she cries
No one can help me!
No one can help me, can't help myself!
I can't help myself!
I can't help myself!
Frozen throughout
Exposing broken skin
Frozen throughout
Exposing

One week!
One week, one more week!
One week
One more week!
One week
One more week!
One week
One more...
Week!
Anymore
Burning in her mind
Take anymore
Burning in her mind
Take anymore
Burning in her mind
Take anymore

Why
Can't I
Sever your head?
Why can't I sever
Your memory?
Why can't I sever your head?
(Why) Can't I sever your memory?
Memory!
The image
Burned through her
Eyes
Has made it
On to the mirror
Broken glass
Reflecting on
Shards of the
Past
Broken glass
Reflecting
On!
Force-fed
Memories
Walking
On tacks
Please
Pull the knife
Out of my back
Force-fed
Memories
Walking
On tacks
Please
Pull the knife
Out of my back
And I'll pull the knife out of yours
And I'll pull the knife out of yours!
You can't stop the rain!
You can't stop the rain!
You
Can't stop
The
Rain!
Combining the creative efforts that focused on the assassination attempts made upon all presidents
With the main ideals of capitalism and fears of environmental degeneration
The ozone depletion is a lie
A farce concocted by geniuses to cover up the tracks of wheels long set in motion
We are the seekers of sight
The sightseers seeing what no others have seen
We are the seekers of sight
The sightseers
Stop all production
Dumb down and unlearn
Why lie, why deceive?
Corruption is easier when the corrupted are corrupt
To relearn is death, but the dead have been walking the earth for years
And I dream in black and white and red
The last time I saw you, your head was on a spike, still screaming her name
Still cursing the day that I was born
Yet nothing has changed
Or do I still ask you for help? No
Then stop asking me for forgiveness
I cannot bleed until my dreams come true
There is no such thing as fire and brimstone
When the rains come, so will the floods and Noah will be your grave
Help promote the de-evolution of the human race
Continue the search because we are not ownable, we are not programmable, we cannot be controlled
Search manufacture or remanufacture
I've lost my train of thought again, can't remember yesterday from the back of my hand
But I can see your future and it does not contain me
When the world ends, we will all relive our childhoods, and our rebirth will begin
Revert. Revert into the sullen dogs you once were
As poison replaces blood
Everyone used to think humanity was you, slowly and surely you're more machine than men
Gears and cogs clog your system
Surely you're more machine than men
Overload
Poison replaces blood
Always running in circles
Tie me up, light me up, tear me down
As the paint runs down your face and into your eyes, think of me
I want to be remembered as pain
It's more a lifetime you left
A lifetime of lifelines shouting from rooftops with no one to hear but us
I'm not going to lie, I never did, I never will; but I loved that life
I lived that life, so does that mean I'm dead?
Time has passed since our last goodbyes and the taste of that letter still stands on my lips
Honey mixed with vinegar
And life is very long
You know I would set this world on fire just to see the look on your face
Because silence is sweet, but not as sweet as revenge
I would set this world on fire just to see your face
But not as sweet as revenge
