lyrics

Nobody knows how to play the game tonight
Wicked whispers keep the calm
Soldiers stray from battle and leave their weapons behind
In trenches to die alone
Wanting ammunition in the afterlife
The shooting stops
The war falls out of sight and out of failing minds
Children walk out of their broken homes
Leading hitchhikers by candlelight
Everything has to wax and wane
It needs to go from whence it came

Periphery move to center
Center move so far away

Dispossession
My fair maiden
Death would serve us better
Dispossession
Soul forsaken
We will have our restitution in the coming hour
Dispossession
My fair maiden
Dispossession

I loved the way you chased me then
Even now you seem so wide awake
Although you slumber through the day
We're liberal with the mistakes we make
Driving stakes through hearts that lost the beat so long ago
Wilting flowers have to decompose so other things can bloom and grow
I'm taking candy from hungry ghosts
Giving shelter to the gracious host

Freedom and surrender
To whom it may concern
I won't be outnumbered
'Til I neatly rip my soul in two
One be me, one be you

Dispossession
My fair maiden
Death would serve us better
Dispossession
Soul forsaken
We will have our restitution in the coming hour
Dispossession
My fair maiden
Dispossession

You can just call me Legion
You can just call me Legion

Maybe something this good really can’t be fully embraced by everyone. In any case, the end is nigh, and Brine will there ushering in the apocalypse with the ultimate soundtrack. ... more
