Black -Michael Romeo

This is the dawning of a new inception
The generating of a warped perfection
The paradigm is shining — no exception
Truth is a lie — a spit in the eye

The scope of what is real now fast eroding
Cause and effect — a fairytale imploding
A clap of thunder
And the storm’s approaching
Come in from the rain

Pulling the strings — smashing our wings
Striking us down
Now there’s no turning back
This venomous sting — end of all things
Burns in the night
And shifts the palest grey to endless black

Paranoia’s like a burning fuse
Yet it’s the only tool we want to use
A revocation of the right to choose
The game of a snake with so much at stake

Clutch your weapons out of desperation
Lead the numbered to extermination
You’re one step closer to annihilation
Addicted to the pain

Cast the first stone and smite the weak
It’s all too easy now to make them break
Raging bullets tear through flesh
A bloody battlefield
And one by one they learn
The price now paid for every past mistake

Pulling the strings — smashing our wings
Striking us down
Now there’s no turning back
This venomous sting — end of all things
Burns in the night
And shifts the palest grey to endless black

There is no escape from inside this hell
If you want to live to see another day
Then heed my words
Palest grey to endless black
