lyrics

DEVIL MAY CARE

There’s a crowd to be deceived
Another martyr joins the team
Cults become regimes
Their sins sanctioned by their creed

Past the angels and the demons
I've abandoned alone
Past the unforgiven lovers
Crying to free their bones
In the ocean of a lifetime
To a rowboat lost at sea
With no partner and no compass
No one aboard but me
Creatures dive from the sky
No honest man escapes
No God left to defy
In the freezing water
In the darkest of days
No sense of destination...

They say, “God won’t lead you
Where grace can’t find”
Is that a comfort
Or a flawed design?
They say, “God won’t lead you
Where grace can’t find”
Then why did he leave her
So far behind?

Goblins hungry for young fruit
Childish boredom with their youth
Hidden corners where they meet
Border battles end in defeat

From the depths of de profundis
To those chasing the stars
From the fires of a hunter
To those praying in dark
From the weakness of a saint
To the heart of the beast
With the bitter taste of failure
And the let down of peace
Creatures dive from the sky
No honest man escapes
No God left to defy
In the freezing water
In the darkest of days
No sense of destination
But they always say...

They say, “God won’t lead you
Where grace can’t find”
Is that a comfort
Or a flawed design?

The real villain got away
The scapegoat will have to pay
With virgins on display
The witch hunt takes centerstage
